Im sorry if this has already been mentioned but i searched and didnt find anything on it. Does anyone know how big the Dana axle is in the rear, maybe a Dana 60?

Thanks

I think the rear was based on a Dana 44 design.

The rear is a Dana 44, and the front is basically a Dana 44

What kinda loads are these axles capapble of? I don't plan on do ing the Baja but I may like to add some 33s or 35s at most and do moderate 4x4ing and hauling/towing.

S.O.

After the many questions concerning the front and rear axle assemblies, you would think I would have already talked to my buddy, who's Dad works at Dana Corp.....Let me call him and get the inside scoop on this because I've heard so many reports that the Titan rear axle is "based" on the 44 series but isn't actually a 44.

I'll make some calls this weekend and see if once and for all we can get to the bottom of this because I would like to know as well.

I'll also see if his Dad can provide any spec sheets on our axles as well, of which is another thing I would like to know.

I found this article on the Titan's axles on Automotive Industries website.
It doesn't answer the rear axle name/number question but covers the front, which they call a Dana 205. They are made at Dana’s Columbia, Mo. facility. It also mentions that the E-LOCK is provided by Tochiji-Fuji

The article does state that the number of teeth was increased on the rear and the front axles' ring gear and pinion sets in an attempt to make the gear operation smoother.
