check out this link. its old but its making me think twice about dual cases
plus the comparison of a yota 8" to a 60 pinion is crazy

YOu run 44 and Yota's I'l stick with my 60.

this guy is a dip shit.

for one thing, a 4.10 IS stronger then a 5.71 because of the contact area. look at the depth of the teeth. the 4.10 concacts deeper.

go ahead, trade a 1 ton diff for a toy axle and see teh carnage that ensues.

he does have a point though about how the gears are setup makes a huge difference.

its not the depth of contact its the total surface area the pinion is hitting the ring gear with. 6 tooth pinion will not contact as much surface area as a 12 tooth.

i didnt mean that toy r&p is stronger than a 60, i just meant that compared to a dana 60 the pinion is "similar" and that the 5.71 appears to have close to the ammount of strength that a 4.10 has

of coarse but if the ratios were the same the toy would be weaker.

yet a 5.71 will not stand up as long as a 4.11 will.. even if the 4.11 is 20 years old.

Give me yotas so I can stay with burfields. PERIOD!

give me IFS because it is so advanced it should be on futurama

The amount of tooth contact is similar between these two diffs if you go by the # of teeth in contact. However the 60 IS stornger due to each tooth is much longer in length. Which means MORE contact area overall.

This still does not mean i will be putting dana under my toyota. Just that I believe a 60 to be stronger.

If you saw and clicked on a link near the bottom this sums it up really good:

Many people consider only the POWER issue of this equation as opposed to considering the STRESS LOADING situation as well. You need to change the ring and pinion gears also - relative to your tire size - which will make the driveshaft easy to turn again, taking all of the strain off of these parts - just like it was made from the factory when the smaller tires were on it. It is a mistake to do all of your gear reduction at one point. Especially that far up the mechanical chain.
Do yourself a favor....reduce the ratio at the ring and pinions relative to the size tire you want to run, then select the transfer case gears that will best meet your 4-wheeling needs. By going this route, you will have a well thought out and trouble-free drivetrain, working well within the parameters of strain that the parts can and will reliably handle.

its an interesting comperison but sort of cave man thinking (bigger tooth better ) its sortof like axle shaft splines a finer spine on an axle will be stronger if the axle diamiter is the same as one with a corser splin becaus the contact area is the same or larger and the base material has been cut in to less
