Just throw a 14FF in the rear and call it good.
That's what I'm doing, oh wait, I don't drive a Jeep anymore.
It does suck though, had a buddy who was about to order one for the D44a he just picked up. Guess he'll have to find someone else who needs it.
I have driven a fully spooled rear (feels just like one that's welded) it's hell on an axle, unless it's super strong, (like my 14FF).
1985 1 ton K-5, Detroit diesel, 36" tires (going bigger when money permits), 4-speed manual swap, Rockwell T-case, Hybrid lift, 12.5K winch.
