I am in full self mutilation mode. I am maintaining 2 jeeps and building a motor for one of them.

The baby whip is still a wip She popped her tranny so I got my old one fixed the seals and changed out the filter and pan gaskets.

Old seal out


new one in.

Specs are 2 inches of lift 31s and it gets driven like a red headed step child gets beaten!

Next question can I drop down to a 2 inch lift and run ford radius arms on a hp44? I want to get a bit lower and wider so this seems like a tits option!
I mean the HP44 as tits.

Guys I need some help. I have ran into a problem. As it sits my dd is the cummins but yeah it needs 3k worth of parts. Vp 44 injectors and a turbo. So idk what to do with the jeep. It needs to go back to dd status
I'm debating modding my shocks mounts and going down to 2 inches of lift and some nice 33s. But at the same time I want to go bigger. Convince me to go one way or the other.
D44 and 36s or keep the turd and go down.

So here we are! I have a buddy with a TJ on 33's on 15x10's. I'd like to get to that myself. I think 33's are the prime size for this size rig.
I'm pretty stuck on my setup cuz I don't wanna lose anymore hp. But I think you would notice little difference between the narrow 34's and the wide 33's.
I just focus on making it bomb-proof. I wanna do a SYE just so I know I'll never drop the driveline. I also haven't done brakeline ext. yet either, but want to. I think good prep is more important than size.

The problem is its the weight on this pig.
It's not like a light little rig any more back on my mtrs I was getting around 18-20 mpg but my tires are heavier and so is the rig. So that 18 is now 13-15 I just don't want to gear this thing my axles won't last. I do eventually want to go bigger so I'm stuck ya see?

That's why I've stuck with 31's. Once you go up, you never wanna down-size. Before I go to 32's, I wanna get properly set for it. 33's are going to be that point where I consider the D44's. And there too, I don't wanna mess around with fabbing up the wrong application. I'm just gonna buy a set of Dynatracs.

A D44 isn't really better than the "turd" as you call it. Have you ever broke a 30 shaft?

Not on this jeep
But it has bigger brakes, lock out hubs, and the ability to be spooled. Major advantages to me over a 30.

**** a spool in the front and lock outs are ok but it's much easier to just change a unit bearing in a 30. Which, in turn, makes shafts easier to change.

Eh I keep popping unit bearings it's getting old. For the price of doing a wj swap and a front locker I can do a Dana 44. And a mini spool. Why do you say **** a spool up front? I liked my rear spool. Not liking my powertrax as much as I liked the spool. It great but unpredictable on the road.


He runs welded front and rear and it is sweet. Cheap and strong. Not a Dana 44 but still.

I'm actually curious if my hp30 has something other than an open diff cuz it grabs like crazy on the pavement. Not that I do that on purpose. I'd think even in 2hi, a spooled front would cause you problems on the pavement.?

Yes it would. With out lock out hubs you would feel it like you couldn't go any were but a straight line and you would eat threw u joints like a mother.
