Dana 35 Gears Fit Into Dana 44 Diff.

Alright quick question here guys. I have a dana 35 right now with 4.56 gears in it. I am going SOA soon and i need a bigger axle i am going with a dana 44. I will have 35" tires. Now my question is will dana 35 gears go right into a dana 44 axle? I really do not want to buy new gears.

Also can i reinforce my dana 35 to make it just as strong as a dana 44 or bigger? I dont really want to spend to much money on this. I dont go wheeling to often i am a moderate wheeler.

I really do not know whether or not that would work. You should just spend the cash and do it the right way. The larger the ring gear the stronger it is in most cases.

Yes, you can reinforce your dana 35. There are several bolt up products and kits that will help out alot.

Your not pushing the limits of your jeep until your on your side, then something breaks and it's time to go home.

the dana 35 gears will not or should not fit, but if your on a limited budget why are you going SOA?

no and no.

Have you seen a 44 carrier next to a 35?
SOA and 35's on a D35 is not a very good plan.
Try to find a 44 with 4.56's already in it if you're on a tight budget.

Big no. Axles are a place where you want to do it right the first time. Last place you want a problem is on a mountain somewhere when you sheared a ring an pinion because you went on the cheap. Definatly try and find one with the 4.56s already in it if you can.

My Build Up

95 YJ, D30/8.8 w/ 4.88s, SOA, 35x14.50x16.5 Pit Bull Mud Dawgs, 101" Wheelbase, Custom Front Bumper, Winch, Custom Rear Tow Points, Traction Bar, Aussie Locker in front, 20 Gal. Gas Tank modification, Hurculiner Tub, Custom Rear Bumper, SYE and CV shaft, BTF Cross-over Steering, RCI 2191 fuel cell, BTF Rockers, RE 1.5" SOA springs up front and XJ springs in the rear

Down the line a bit...engine swap, the list goes on.

WOW!!!!!

Cheap and SOA do not go in the same sentance. Your a moderate wheeler........then why SOA???

Gears go with their respective axles.

No you cannot build a 35 to = a 44.

Haha alright. I know SOA and cheap dont go together. Im only trying to save some money and yes i know the expenses of SOA. I am what is considered a moderate wheeler up here in quebec. But a moderate wheeler here is having 35" or bigger with soa and we have these huge forest mud pits that come up to your waist in some areas.. No mountains around here though.. And i am willing to put as much money as possible on my winter SOA project. Im only a student working part time i make 900$ a month. But the most expensive deal in the SOA would be the rear diff. Ill have to check up on some prices. Anyways it was only a quick question, Just wondering were i could save a bit of money..
