I've been in some hard rock crawling & the axle held up great, my front diveshaft on the other hand twisted & snapped. when I ordered my axles back around 96 a 60 rear 44 front was considered bulletproof up to a 38 inch tire combo. besides it was $7500 Canadian delivered to my door, kinda blew the budget. The guys at Dynatrac advised me on the 44 saying the 60 was overkill & much, much heavier, not needed for a lightweight jeep

I've got pics of that breakage day, but they're on my old puter & don't have a networking setup. No idea how to transfer images to my new one
