Dana 44 Axles

The Dana 44 axles worked out great since they went under our S-10 with minimal issues. About the only axle modification to make besides the hubs are the differentials and gears. The stock S-10 engines do not have enough juice to push around 35-inch tires, so a gear change is in order—either 4.56:1 or 4.88:1 should be good for off-roading and freeway driving alike.
