What's the strength of a 14 bolt compared to the Dana 44 and 60? Do you like your set up and how well is it handling 40"s?

14bolts are alot tougher than a 60 rear (60 fronts are alot different)...biggest problem with them is the drum brakes, leaky wheel seal problems, and they are shaped like a one bottom plow and will hang you up on everything. A 10.25 is a better choice.

A 60 rear is a piece of scrap iron....Id rather have a 9 inch

The biggest thing you have to keep in mind is a 60 is not a 60. There are more variations of that axle than any other. Very very very few of them are worth having in stock form. If you dont know beyond the shadow of doubt what your looking at, your better off buying a 70, 10.25, or 14bolt

Yea, I havnt looked in to the 60s much. I was considering a ford 8.8 rear and hp30 till I was told 36s would rip those apart. I'm so lost on choosing axles.... Ugh

36s at most. Might look in to a stroker or super charger n the future. Think a ford 8.8 and dynatrack 44 would handle the thrashing?

8.8's are pretty tough, Id try one if I were in your shoes. Im no fan of high dollar axle companies products that are nothing more than warmed over stock stuff. Honestly for the price of what they want for a 44, you can buy a 60 and go through it and be way better off....and if you did that, why not go for the 10.25 rear since its the same price at a pick n pull.

I just don't know what to do getting them cut down and having axle shafts made for the length i chose. This is why I can't decide on an axle set up lol. I want to b able to beat on them with out breaking since it's my DD but I can't afford to dump 8k n to axles. I was hoping to do front and rear for under 2500. Doubt that will happen. I can't weld and don't know much about customizing and axle as far as width. I guess I'll ask your final opinion on what I should do? I have multiple thread on axle tech if you wanna move this there?

The 8.8 is a tuff axle to beat. I know a guy running a 1200 hp 8 second turbo mustang with a built 8.8 . 36" tires with a super 88 kit and you won't see any problems. The 44 is weak at the shaft ears and ball joints but with good shafts should be fine up to a 37" tire. I totally agree about the 14 bolt they are a big ground clearance killing turd and the ford 10.25 is by far the better choice! But if you were going to spend the dough to narrow one you may as well just build a 35 spline 9" which will give you plenty of strength and killer ground clearance!

I would say 25 is a fair price and it's nothing huge if ppl are looking specifically for that. That's prolly 6k new? I'd say set your bottom dollar at 2k list it as 3k so you got a little room to play with
