    Similarities are they are they are both weak. Neither have an axle as thick as the Landcruisers and are C-clip also. In 18 years of wheeling the 12 bolt is the only axle that I have bent then tube came loose from the housing. In a different vehicle destroyed the posi. I would look at other choices. $.02

    I forgot to mention 10 bolts are weaker and that I have never broken a Cruiser axle or birf.

    There are large and small diff housing 10 bolts, the twelve bolt is stronger, and both work great in someone elses application, and would not be found in anything that I pilot, or have anything to do with, as they are not worth the work swapping into something that has a better axle in it from the get go...

    Simply my opinion.

    Good luck!
