D44a and D44..

Nah, a WJ has a wider axle (WMS) and I think different CA mounts etc...

WAY different. Not only is a WJ axel 3" wider but the rubi axel would not come close to bolting up anyway.

Yep, the TJ (along with the ZJ) is a 5 link including a tracbar. The WJ is a 3 link in the back.

TJ WMS = 60.75" and WJ is 63.5"
