TJ RD44 under a YJ w/CS?

TJ RD44 under a YJ with coil suspension.
Has anyone done this? Are there any problems that you could share with me and any tricks that could help.
I don't see a problem with it but could use some info on it.

Thank for the info.

if you keep stock height there shouldn't be any problem.

You might have to make some custom cross-members and brackets though.

If you just want a D44, I would cut and weld new mounts on the axle and keep the leaf spring rather then welding new mounts on the frame.

I am doing a spring over up front with the 3" lifted springs I have on now. I was thinking that I could find a TJ RD44 and put the 8" coil in the rear. I like the way that set up works. I have only seen it in pic and it looks like it kicks a$$. A lot of people tell me to do a spring over all around but I dare to be a little different. I also need to learn how to do the repairs so if it brakes I can fix it. I am trying to have a Built not bought rig because I do Not have good luck with mechanics.

if you want to be different, do coil over up front, and 1/4 eliptical in the rear

with that much lift, the longer pinion of the D44 will come into play, but I assume you already thought about/have an SYE

you might want to get HD brackets for the axle then, you will also need a trackbar relocation bracket for the axle.
