axle change question- between WJ & TJ
I own a 1999 WJ ,with Iron Rock 4" lift kit , MX6 Pro Comp shocks,245/75/16 bf mt tires and tom woods hd front drive shaft.
I am quite disappointed from the Quadra-Drive 4-wheel drive system abilities! –
It is not doing what it is suppose to do , and if I may quote from jeep's web site:
"The system instantly detects Tire slip and smoothly distributes engine torque to the tires with traction".
Since I love technical off road wheeling ,
I looked for buying rear and front differential locks,
i found out that the front axle have a lot of diff locks options ,
but for the rear axle the only recommended option available for 44dana aluminum was Aussie Locker which is not for sale anymore.
I heard that the TJ Wrangler / Rubicon axles( 44dana) are suitable for wj and can replace the wj original axles.
The coast for rear and front is around 2500$.
I understood that these tj axles are equipped with advanced and durable technology,
Also they originally comes with diff locks.
If it is true I will want to do just that and change the axles to tj axles.
My question is –did anyone have experience with changing the wj axles to tj axles ?
If yes ,do you need to change or adjust anything in the wj or in the new tj axle in order to make the replacement ?
what are the needed changes adjustments ?
any more info regards this issue will be helpful.
Thanks in advance for your help,
