I figured, but just thought I would ask for that warm and fuzzy! It's still a big azz axle, shaft and for sure the housing.

The stock axles take a heck of a lot of abuse by the big power guys and they don't brake axles or transfer cases. Well, there is one transfer case that blew up and that was by Elmo at the diesel power challenge. That is the only one I have herd of. Axles take a lot of abuse. Every once in a while the front U joint will let go when either drag racing or sled pulling but other than that the ford drive train is pretty stout.

As I understand it, the D50 solid front axle is actually a D60 housing with D50 innards.

Now that you mention it, I think I remember John Wood saying he broke an axle shaft while he was being filmed for diesel power magazine.
