I have heard that Chromemoly shafts are stronger than Warn shafts.
Anyone else herd anything like this?
Anyone ever used Chromemoly shafts?

To my knowledge, Warn shafts are chromoly. I do know that whatever brand you get, you want rolled splines, not cut splines.

Cut splines are just that, cut into the hardened material. Rolled splines are rolled in while the metal is "soft", and then the object is treated. An easy way to tell is to look at the factory Dana stuff. Notice the splines have lines in them perpendicular to the splines themselves. These are rolled. If the little lines (machining marks) run parallel, odds are they are cut.
