The Rubi stock carrier is a pricey piece.. Carrier options are limited due to metric bearings in the D44. Remember, the D44 housing is exactly the same strength as the D30 housing. The only advantage of this swap is bigger axles and, ring and pinion. If you are looking for structural strength add a truss too the D44 before instal.
