No.
Why would it be?
That would mean the rest of the drive train would have to rotate reverse.

D44A came in all V8 ZJs 96 and later, and some I6s (and early V8s) with certain option packages.

None of them ran backwards.

To keep this thread tech, I'm going to ask... What exactly does define an axle being reverse rotation? Would this be all front axles, some front axles? These are some of the questions that led to me just say "Hey Kolak, I need gears" instead of tracking down specific part numbers myself

I'd like to know about the reverse rotation as well.

Aren't HP30s reverse rotation?
