I want to lift my bronco up 6 " with a 3" body and 37" tires. What can i do to my stock TTB to make it a lot stronger. I dont know how to do a SAS plus i dont have the money for such a mod. Please tell me the best way to go about doing this. This is my daily driver plus mild off-roading on the weekends. Anyinfo would be great. I was wondering if BLAZE is using the stock TTB.

Even as a daily driver, those 37s are going to beat up your TTB. Either limit yourself to 35s, or read, and re-read, the SAS forum that we've got here

Yes, Blaze is using is TTB, I know of another who has a TTB on 38's. Niether of which I would recommend but it does work. After all, the TTB does suck, but remember, it's still a Dana 44, which does say something. Good luck. Atleast upgrade your steering components, 37 will not turn easily and your tierods will bend.

Yep, talk with BoulderBronco, he's running 37's on his TTB.......seems I just saw him say he goes thru shafts "like food."

OTOH I don't think a live axle 44 is gonna stand up to 37's that much better...........but if you're serious about this and wanna install a lift kit or an SAS (the latter is always the better option and not necessarily more expensive) there's plenty of people in the Denver area who can help you out.

You might want to look at an Air locker or Limited slip for the front.

I'm running 37X12.5 MT/R's for about 6 months now. You will bend the steering rods. I did and blew out a new ball joint on the tie rod. I would not do the body lift, 6" spring lift, and cut the fenders. My site has my mods to get the 37's on. Superrunner steering is holding-up well and is a minor improvement in the steerability and feel. Should be stronger too. Time and wheeling will tell. You would be pushing the limits of the stock axels and brakes therefore it requires frequent inspection to keep you safe.
Do the D50 inner shaft/joint, stronger and that is the most frequent break on D44 TTB with large tires. Replace that then the outters are the weak point. I carry extra outter axels and tie rod ends. Add up all the crap, I did over time, and it would have been less costly to do the SAS.

And stay the F*** away from a ProComp lift
You will be sorry if you are doing it yourself.

Installed 1 on a 94 and the front springs gave out,
the brackets had to be drilled to fit, and the radius arms
were too short for where the directions told you to drill
holes.
This can be said for any brand of lift kit. Pro-Comp makes good product, and they stand behind it. Try BDS also.

:lolup that is my only probs so far....wheel bearings and seals, front and rear. I also beleive you will break something in that 8.8 before you break something in the ttb axle wise minus the combo of lockers.....i am kinda supried how durable mine has been, i only have put 4 sets of wheel bearings in 2 years and a et of new u joints for the axle shafts because there were no needle bearings left :shrug
