The first time I ran 35s and I mean literally the first trail I bent the axel in my Dana 44, chewed through a entire spider gear, and bent the drive shaft. But I didn't affect my Dana 30 one single bit.

Since then I have upgraded gears, axel shafts (only for the 44) put an arb in the but and and LSD up front. And bought a new driveshaft with a slip yoke eliminator (sye)

Do it right the first time and get Axel shafts and new gears so you don't destroy them.
Also with 35s your gonna need to look at a sye because the angle of the drive shaft will be off with that large of a tire. Which is why I bent mine. If I knew all this before hand I would have saved hundreds and buying a new driveshaft....
But to learn you have to experience.

dstevens243 I mean I have 33s and a d44 in the rear

dstevens243 Didn't mean any disrespect, I have 33's upfront and D44 in the back, would like to go to 35's

05silver_sport My bad just trying to help. But don't spend money on a 44 up front the 30 should work fine up to 35" tires so maybe just invest in some chromoly shafts for the D30 and you'll be set.

dstevens243 I get that
08-26-2012 01:18 AM
05silver_sport Whereas the rear is centered
08-26-2012 01:18 AM
05silver_sport Dana 44 for the front is a different model than the rear since the diff is closer to the driver side
08-26-2012 01:17 AM
dstevens243 I would have to regear the 44?
08-26-2012 01:10 AM
Jcole231 In the process of finishing 8.8 swap if u have a d44 in the rear now thats fine. The rear would not be compatible with the front
08-26-2012 12:57 AM
dstevens243 Oh thanks, newb
08-26-2012 12:51 AM
Jcole231 The f-150 8.8 is wide, u need one from an explorer
08-26-2012 12:08 AM
dstevens243 So just to elaborate, my buddy hates his f150, understandably so, so I was just thinking of taking his 8.8... What would I have to do?

Ford 8.8?

So I wanna put my d44 up front and a ford 8.8 in back, what needs to happen, or do I have it reversed?
