    I understand your point but some of us don't need 1 ton axles but need better than stock Sahara axles. When I bought my JL with the trailer towing package I assumed it had M220 axles. Little did I know it had M200 rear axles. I don't really need the 1 ton but may have to go that way since no one is making a Pro Style 44 rear. I do think there is a market for them but until that time I'm between a rock and hard place.

    There would really be no need to replace it, until you broke it. Maybe youíll never break it.

    Is the m200 a Dana 44? I thought all Jeep jlís have a d44 in the rear.

    Dana 35 Rear Axle in my 2018 JLU Sahara, found out the difference when I went to put in 4.88 gears. There is a difference between the M200 and the M220 axles.

    Dana 35 has an oval cover. That's definitely not a 35.

    Actually, we will be posting a video that highlights what the FAD is and how it works by tomorrow. We do not cover it as being a possible weak point but in a following video, we do show how this is where all the breaks we've seen have been located.

    eh, not exactly. Even on the JK, the rear Dana 44 was a true 44 in that it came with 3" diameter tubes. With the exception of it being a semi-float axle, it did okay up to 37" tires. Bent shaft flanges was probably the biggest issue with them. And, if you're really bending flanges that much, you really need to be running a full float axle and that would be a 60.
