Re: Dana 50 - what, where, why?
They sound like a cure for the people that continusally blow axle u-joints on d44s. I think you can only get ring and pinion up to 4.56's. I think they are still used in f250's and single wheel f350's. If if you figure costs i'm not sure what's cheeper d44 housing $100, locker $500, gears and install kit $200, alloy shafts $550, ctm u-joints $300, warn hubs $75, new brakes/ 8 lug outers $100 = $1825. Dana 50 complete $300?, locker $500, gears and install kit $250?, warn hubs $100, new brakes $150 = $1300. Now those are just gestamits on the prices and you have to adapt it for you needs. They both have their + and minsus.
Wheel it or drive a minny van
