10. The big news is G2’s new heavy-duty Dana 44 rear housing features 3-inch diameter, 0.250-wall DOM axletubes and stout 1⁄4-inch-thick suspension brackets. Unlike the factory housing, the upper control arm brackets that are welded to the G2 tubes feature slotted holes to make small changes in pinion angle. We’ll be showing more of this new axle in the next installment, including the machined flat area with drilled and tapped holes atop the centersection, which facilitates mounting the rear upper Tri-Link arm in the 4.5-inch Rubicon Express Extreme Duty Long Arm suspension system.
