Re: axle swap suggestions

8.25 isnt a terrible axle. Run it till it dies.
If you want something better, ford 8.8 is the way to go. Its stronger than a d44, and fits with minimal work .
D30 ... well, its not a great axle, but swapping that Is more involved. I beefed mine up, when it goes I'll replace it, but to run something better, like a d44 or d60 takes some work , you need a decent amount of clearance. ,
Daily drive: 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk; stock (for now)
