i got 60s front and rear.
but mogs are sweet,put some in a 79 ford and a FJ-40.
had both sets right apart to make a central tire inflation system,everything is huge.
and the drum brakes are sweet can lock up 54" boggers no problem.

By the time you add up the price of a couple dana 60's, gears, lockers, and labour to install. Mog axles are not that expensive, and portals rule!

ps- never get Mog axles if you want to run on the street......slowly! They were never designed to go over 80km/h. Very low gearing.

that all depends on trans gearing(5th gear) and tire size

a 609 diff cuz it has the weight of a 9" diff and the clearance of one but it uses dana 60 outers and axles

For the rear,,,Eaton Ho 52 or Ho 72. Without going portal, they have the best ground clearance, and stronger than the rest of the choices. They are a bit rare,,,, but I have me quite the stock pile. For the front I'll have to see how well my built d44 holds up. If I was running bigger than 35's I would have to go with a d60,,,,,I just hate to loose the ground clearance, so for now I'll gamble on the d44. Too bad I couldn't an eaton for the front, that would be the ultimate for a street/wheeling machine.

spidertrax 609 for the front diff, and a shaved 40 spline 9" rear.... All the strength of one tones without the weight

those atons are nice.
In addition, you can flip them over and put the chunk in th cover side and it gives you on offset so you can fun them on non center output t-cases.
