Dana 44 ?

I got my new lift now! Hopefully put it on this weekend. Now it's time to regear my wimpy d35. Or bag that idea and get a D44. Is there a dana 44 that will bolt right in? With out going nuts making it fit? any input would be great!

A dana 44 from a cherokee or comanche will fit, you just have to move the spring perches and shock mounts. The problem is that they are hard to find and prob. expensive. Another option is to get a ford 8.8 out of a 95 up explorer. They are a little narrower than a stock dana 35, but it isn't really noticeable. They do come w/ disc brakes though. I picked one up for $350. You just have to search around to find a good deal. email me if you wanna see some websites that i have found on an 8.8 install.
