    Not yet, 35s on 5.13s, open. Only gusseted the C's. I don't do crazy stuff though, still learning to be easier on the gas which the 5.13s have helped greatly!

    D30 and D44 axle tubing, C's, and I believe U joints are the same strength. Internals are where the difference lies. If you want tough I think cheaper to buy a ProRock44 rather then build a D44.

    Fully agree, I feel that's the reason mine broke. That, and a 2 pinion spider setup is just no where as strong as your average locker, which usually have 4 pinions (spiders)

    Lost a cap going up a river embankment and couldn't let off. So I elongated the ears on my drivers side inner shaft. New shaft and new joint good to go.

    To the guy who said I'm going to jump straight to the 44. Heads ups the joint breaks on them just as often .

    I learned my lesson though and now all my caps are tacked on.
