    I know I do not have the funds to ball on 40" tires, full d60's front and rear, double throwdown front and rear, etc; however I do dream of being able to run 37" tires as efficiently as a tight budget would allow. I also feel that while there are many threads on how great the PR 60 rear is, I haven't seen many threads on here about the trail 60 rear by dynatrac. That being said:

    1- how reliable is a front pro rock 44 with ARB lockers for running 37" tires. And can the front PR44 only be had in the stock 5x5 bolt pattern?

    2- being that I am interested in the PR44 for the front, how would a Dynatrac trail 60 rear fare on 37" tires Being that it is not full float, not high pinion, and re-uses stock brakes and calipers. This is important because the trail 60 matches the 5x5 bolt pattern of the PR44 whereas the rear PR60 does not come in 5x5 bolt pattern (but correct me if I'm wrong here). This saves me money as far as wheels are concerned.

    3- aside from high pinion, bigger brakes, what else is different in a trail 60 and PR60. Is the housing thicker?

    I'm hoping that people can shine some light on the trail 60 because I haven't read much about it on here and I really don't wanna go with another manufacturer. I'm convinced dynatrac makes quality axles, I just hope this combo would work for 37" tires as reliable as PR60 front and rear would for 40" tires. Thanks guys.
    Waste of money to go to a trail 60 rear. still semi float. flanges will still bend even on 37s. better served to run your stock 44 with 35 spline shafts and an arb. only 60 to run is full float. otherwise wasting cash. that trail 60 is pretty, but not invincible. pr the front though. that's a great idea for 37's. Ive been on my Pr44 unl with 35 spline rcv's and arb and 35 spline rear setup for over a year and been on many trips without issue. seen guys bend flanges on the same setup though. mostly line choice, avoid pinching that rear end in tight spots if possible and youll be just fine. carry a trail spare, not to mention you can still get home on a bent flange anyhow, spares smart, not necessary
