Can the 44 for a 9". A strange "Drag Gear" ( 9310 steel) will hold up as good as any. If you have the gear lightened it's good for 50 passes. If it's a standard gear no more than 75 passes. You may get a little more out of it with only 700hp and 2,000lbs, but the gears start cracking real quick after that many passes.
You running 40 hawgs or 39.5 swampers? Swampers bite a lot harder than the hawgs.

You can get the same drag gear for most rear ends, but in the long run you will be better off with a good 9". Ford did do at least one thing right!!

DO NOT USE A YUKON GEAR in the rear. Ok for the front, but never in the rear.

This is my Moser 9". It's narrowed 8 "'s.
You'll have much better performance out of a good gear than you did the Yukon. However, no matter what gear they only hold up for so long.
