      D44 breaks

      Have new 08 JK. Wonder if the Dana 44`s are covered under the life time warranty? HHHmmmm!!

        Possible Impact?

        Hey Guys,

        I studied the photo and to me, it looks as though he came down on something while under extreme torque. Kind of like if you stand on a beer can then tap the side, it collapses. Look at where the tube bushing and mount shows raw metal and also on the bottom of the tube itself. Also, at the point at which the impact should have occured, given the raw metal points that reveal recent impact suggests, the tube was impacted then twisted, creating the off set "tear" in the metal...kind of like when you peel the cork screw like can off a tube of coutry style bisquits.

        Just how I see it.

        Later!

          I wonder what court costs are to do a quick lawsuit, cheaper to just buy the new axle?

          Also, wonder if you could threaten to camp in front of the dealership and trash their image with a sign that they crapped on your warranty. 1 minute I bet 100 cars drive by.....lot of damage.

              From what I've read elsewhere, there have been like 388 people who have had broken Dana 44's, in similar fashion. That isn't chance. That is a problem.

                I'd love to see proof of that. 338 out of how many JKs that have been made?

                  Crap, that's almost exactly where mine broke. Though mine was closer to where the stablizer bracket attatches.

                    that is an issue, I would think. budy broke his 93 GC's d30, same spot (but it was jamed on a log, in a hole, and the truck was being removed with 3 winches, Im suprised thats all that happened) but look back, HOW many older jeeps with d30's have busted the tubes in that manor? vs 338 NEW jeeps, in one year 338 occur?
