The passenger drop front axle is obvious if you take a gander under your Yj. Isuzu Dana 44's aren't as strong as most Dana 44's like those that come in a Yj so your best get would be on preservation. Why that? Because for the cost of a new set of cheap steel wheels you can have a 8.8 out of the junkyard or you can search Craigslist for a busted explorer and swap the disc brakes in yourself if you have the right gears. And you have the right bolt pattern so you only bought an axle and not a set of wheels and tried to do the spacer math for five or six lug difference front to back.

I guess I was looking at the gearing. They match so it seems easy (and cheaper. The lowest I was quoted by a shop in my area for a re-gear was $1300 for a single axle, $2100 for both.) and from what I've read, doing gears isn't something that you can do without a lot of experience?

Thanks again. God going on only a few hours of sleep combined from the last few days is killing me. I didn't even notice the lug pattern difference. I feel dumb lol.

I've just broadened my search. I've checked all three JYs that are local to me and not one of them has an 8.8 with 4.10 gears so I would be forced to regear either the 8.8 or my 30 to make it all match, which like I said earlier, is expensive as hell around here.

Oh well I'll keep looking. Thanks for the support
Cheers

Sounds like you need to befriend someone in a local 4x4 club to do it for a lot cheaper.

Because they attach to those mounts and swivel so you can use the angle drilled in the bar.

Good luck with that... I've heard mixed reviews with the Tera skid bending easily (I'm assuming your talking belly up skid). I'm going with Kilby when I do mine...

You're probably right on that one. My only experience with 4x4 clubs was about 4-5 years ago when I was living in SoCal. I joined a local club down there and had a bad experience. They were all pretentious d-bags that ripped on everyone that didn't have 50-60k built rigs. At the time I had my TJ with a 3" lift and 33s and the next smallest tire size in the group was 37s. They were on a high horse and turned me off of clubs...but you're right I should find one around here and check them out.

That's exactly why I started my own club. Look for something family friendly and not just a bunch of jerks wanting to drink and wheel.
