A huge improvement. At least the solid axle 50's, you might want to swap 35 spline inners down the road but I see no issue with 37'sSo how much of an improvement is a 50 over a 44? Are they all over the junkyards or still hard to find like a 60? Can they handle 37-40's without having to worry?
Correct: except on the metric/ superduty 60's. I swear the Dana 50 is larger than 1 1/8"Easy spotters guide, dana 50 had a 1 1/8 pinion nut, where a 60 is 1 5/16
My plastic calipers that's who!6/28"???? who uses 28 as a division of an inch!?!?!?
You're welcome.Good info thanks! Who makes the 35 spline carrier for the 50?
Keep your eye at the Junk Yard for the superduty 60's (Tear-A-Part in SLC) they seem to always have Superduty's they put new inventory out on Thursday make sure you find one that say's 248 on the tag on the axle tube or the easiest way to tell is bring a 1 5/16 socket with ya and that is the idiot proof way of telling them apart 50's are okay but for the extra effort the 60's are the way 2 go....... for the 50, ARB is the only selectable locker made for them..... That I know ofSo I'm back looking for an axle again. Thinking about a dana 50 for price factor and the cheap matching rear sterling. They'll be going under a yj. I'm looking to run 37-40" tires. Detroit in the rear and selectable in the front. I'm not looking to compete or run buggy stuff. Will this axle do? What upgrades are available and should be thrown at it or can it run as is?
