m226 chromoly axle shafts

so i figured id throw this out there since ive seen a few people bring it up
i have the axle shafts i took out of the m226 and can ship them to dutchman,moser or superior to see if they would be willing to make some up in chromoly

the catch is you guys need to do the checking around and make some calls then get a collection goin to get them shipped
post up if there is any interest

I can't believe no one on this board is interested in this.

See my Build Thread for mod list and pics...

The words "Titan Swap, cheap, easy, M205, re-gear, quick, coilovers" are not to be spoken in the same sentence.

What kind of price range are they talking about for these? May be interested.

Edit: Just checked the site and a pair for Dana 44's run about $370. Not sure what it would cost for our tiny batch.

But I'd probably be in but no one looks like they're interested. Not sure why... maybe there's something I don't know.
Where does the weak point shift too when you replace these? I know there's always something next on the chain to
bust but I'm not mechanic, so I'm not sure what it would be. Trying to figure it out, some people have already
said to be careful with 35's on my M226/Dana 44, especially on dry pavement. No sense in buying axle shafts for a
differential that's going to bust soon. I've been very gentle since the new tires and clutch but I'm ready to get on it
with some 4.10's and an LSD soon. But can't afford to fix it all if it just blows right after all that work.

there isn't any kind of group buy so they will just do one off axles

the m226 is actually a good axle once they are built , if you do a good locker like arb or lsd like tru track then you shouldn't have much of an issue with the axle

not sure why there isn't much interest but if i would have kept my m226 i would have done the chromoly's

So they would do their Dana 44 price on these? Or would it be more? I guess I should just call them and ask. But I'm always for taking steps towards bullet-proofing the truck.

I don't want to open up the M226 to re-gear to 4.10 without getting a locker or at least an LSD. Since this truck may be doing more daily driving than expected, I'm leaning towards the LSD. Especially because of the cost and convenience.

Either way... thanks for the heads up. The more good parts for us, the better.
