I wanted to put 3/4 ton drivetrain axles under my Bronco. I was going to throw a 10.25" rear end in the rear and was very interested in DANA 50 ttb gear up front. But I was wondering if they are anywider stronger or anymore of a benefit?
Im just trying to be different with 8 lug HD stuff under it. Also I keep going through rear ends like no other, about one every 7-8 months. i have the 8.8. For the front I just plain and simply wanted more meat and to be different
The D50 TTB is not very travel friendly. Many upgrades can be done to the D44 though. I would think it would take more work to modify a D50 to be suitable than to fix the weak points on a D44.
How much HP do you have? Tire size?
im new to the 4x4 ttb stuff. what could i do to the front end? Also, its kinda off topic but i heard someone talking about putting f150 leaf springs in the rear end. what is that about?
A lot, the beams can be plated, a D50 center joint can be used if needed, aftermarket axles, fabricated knuckles, Chevy D44 8 lug outers (not really any stronger), Uniballs instead of bushings, and more.
Why though? I've never really gotten a D44 to break on all the Broncos I've thrashed. The only breakage was caused by parts being worn out (lack of maintenance).
