Axle question

If a guy was planning to run +40" tires to mud and trail, but no serious rock crawling, what axles fit the bill? (v8 drivetrain)

I run 39.5 Iroks on a Dana 44 front axle, but it has warn shafts and CTM's in it. I do some pretty serious rock crawling with it, and I have not broken anything on it yet...
The best bet is to go with Dana 60's in my opinion, but since your just gonna be playing in the mud, a Dana 44 and a V8 may hold up in the mud.. But I would go with the warn shafts and CTMs..
