    So, there's little question that the housing could handle a 40 but the internals is where you'd see a failure. Even if you were running the strongest shafts you could get, you'd most likely want to run 5.38 gears to push them along and the pinion at that ratio and on a 44 is on the small side.

    Great video and did I hear that right? The Dana 30 is actually stronger than the Dana 44? Wow!

    Well, the housing should be being that it's made with the same tubes only narrower. That would put less leverage on them. However, the ring and pinion and shafts will be stronger in the 44 or M210.

    Makes total sense. I feel like a lot of folks would likely assume that just because the housing is bigger then it would be fine, without realizing what you mentioned regarding the internals, and too be honest I would have too.

    Oh yeah, this is why you'll hear guys go on and on about how they run 40's with a sleeved axle and/or trussed and with gussets installed. If half these guys played as hard as they imagine, they'd know what ultimately is the weak link. I only know because I've been there and done that.

    With that said, I was specific to say that it'd be a real problem with 5.38's... I might be willing to give it another try with 5.13

    So if the JL tube is a bit larger.. but longer... then the JL tube is almost equal in strength to the JK... But add the FAD and now the JL Rubicon Axle is weaker than the JK Rubicon axle... ? No?

    Ha! Well, I actually watch Jeep videos to really learn something...which is why your videos are in a different league than the “look at my girlfriend’s ass while she bends over to install an unnecessary blinker fluid catch reservoir” crap that’s out there.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
