Getting the shaft

Ok I have done my research on WF, still can't find anything about it. I'm not being lazy I promise

Anybody have a suggestions on 30 spline axle shafts for a Dana44? I want to upgrade my shafts to Chromoly material. just don't know where to start. First hand experience is appreciated!

Part two, I know this is beating a dead horse. A locked Dana 30 with chromo shafts or even maybe even RVC's and 35's. Truss, no truss? Is it reliable?

Thanks!

My buddy's been wheeling on Dana 30 with chromo and 37's for 10 yrs...no problem. It's how you wheel. I'd vote for the RCV...

I'm not a axle expert but I'm a incredibly cheep person. I am doing a build and what I have found is that the 30 and 44 use the same u-joints. I only like to spend once. Research is key.

I should clarify I have a 30 front and 44 rear. I was aware of similarities of the 30/44. The only difference Im aware of is ring and pinion size.
