Prairie Drifter, when you show a pic of a snapped 33-spline semi-floater axle, I'll quit using them. If you'll pull an axle out of one and one out of a full floater, you'll see that the thinnest part of a full floater is a good bit smaller than that of a semi-floater. Weaker. And you can have all that extra weight. I don't need it on a trail rig that won't see the need. Underkill with a 10-bolt or Dana 44 front and overkill with a full floater on the rearend. I agree that the big Dana 60 fronts are waaay overpriced, but unless you're hard-core wheeling, so is the full floater. And the semi-floater 9.5" rearends are tough to find, but they're out there, just gotta know where to go.
