If this is how it's designed than so be it but i would be very dissapointed in Jeep if thats the case.
Speaking of the axle any one ever hear of a Dana 44 hd i took mine to a jeep shop trying to get a nicer looking diff cover mine is getting rusted but I figured why not do an arb some thing that holds more fluid that will cool better is it really called a 44hd never herd of that b4
The Dana 44A and Dana 44 HD are the same axle. It was used in the ZJ, WJ, and WK of all models including the SRT8 WK A lot of people hate on it because of the aluminum pumpkin but the fact of the matter is it's a very strong axle. It's a totally different design than a standard Dana 44 though and there are very few covers made for it. They are all $200+
Only bolt in front 44 would be from a 03-06 TJ Rubicon. You would have to re gear the rear to match and have a new front driveshaft made. Plan on spending $3000 said and done. The D30 is plenty strong if you ask me. What are you doing that you feel you need a 44 up front?
I took a 5.9 engine had it machined had the heads machined put forged pistons light weight racing Edelbroch camshaft edlebroch performance lifters and push rods hi flow headers flow master exaust I am working on getting a super charger also have custom mapping done said if I super charge it would be too much for the 30
Guys on another forum running 500+ HP on the stock 44a rear and d30 front axle. Get rid of the POS front CV shafts and put in a set of u joint shafts from a TJ or XJ with ABS Big upgrade right there. Whoever told you that you need "atleast" a 44 up front is wrong.
