G2 Dana 44 options?

I was going to buy a used Lj dana 44, but I would have to regear, and lock. I think I am leaning towards a G2 axle, and getting locker and gears I want from the get go. My question is what is a Spool dif. It is around $600 cheaper. I want to order later today or tomorrow.

If you are going to spend that kind of money on an axle why not buy a 8.8 from ECGS?

License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.

$2200 for a G2 with ARB, or $2700 for an 8.8 the way I want it. I have built it multiple times, and end up high $2ks. What jumps the price up is the $500 add for anything over 4.10's, $850 locker, and it comes out to almost 3k.

A spool will lock the driveshafts together 100% of the time ALL the time. It will put more stress on the tires, shafts etc. Not the best for a street driven jeep. As for G2 vs 8.8, are the g2 just stock tj dana 44's with stuff added? If so the tubes will be weaker than the 8.8.
