I agree if you are really going to run 500hp then you will probably need Dana 60 full float axles. The 44 is a strong axle especially with RCV axles and could work if you truss it and beef up the knuckles with gussets. The 60 is a much heavier axle weighing in at 565lb for the pair compared to around 300lb for D44's. It will handle 500hp with ease. Really depends on how you plan to use the finished MJ.

On another note, an AX15 will never handle 500hp. 320hp with the HD upgrades is about as high as it will go. Not sure about the NP231. I am guessing you will be maxxing that out too. I would consider an Atlas II transfer case.

superduty axles are very popular these days.  they are becoming semi-plentiful in the junkyards. :L:  just make sure you don't accidentally buy the dana 50 front axle, which was used in some superdutys.  they all have a metric 8bolt wheel pattern, so I would grab the 10.5 rear axle to go with it.  (I think it was the 10.25 that was the smaller axle used on some).  my buddy had an '03 with the 60/10.5 combo and it tore me up a little that he junked it after the accident rather than build something with it.  :(
