toy vs. d44 rear

i currently have a dana 44 rear end in my jeep and i have an opportunity to get a pretty much complete 86 toyota truck rear end for free. im pretty sure its a 4-banger. i dont know too much about the toy axles other than they are alot like a ford 9". which axle do you think would be more favorable, the d44 or toy? i plan on running 35" tires.

thank you for any input!

It's been said here in the past that the Toyota axels are very strong, but I would stick with the 44 because I don't think you're likely to hurt it with 35s.

There are some guys on the board with Toyota experience. I'm sure someone will check in soon with better info.

Since you already have a D44, I don't think I would spend the time and $ to chance out to a Toy rear. Yes it is a strong rear end. But it is not "That Much" stronger than a 44, and for 35's, your D44 will be fine.
