The housings are constructed from precision cut and welded 1" x 4" and 1"
x 2½" rectangular tubing, while the axle tubes are made from 23/8"-diameter
thick-wall tubing. The CNC-machined solid steel gear housing holds US-made
Dana 44 spider gears. Also featured are automotive-style Timken-type splined
wheel hubs. The brakes are black Wilwood two-piston calipers and the twopiece
11.09"-diameter rotors have an offset hat. Axle assemblies are shipped
with a gloss black powdercoated finish. They measure 415/8" hub-to-hub, and
