So I picked up a dana 44 for $150 out of a 2008 wrangler. Its rotor to rotor. An has a wabbly axle shaft on one side were it seems like they ran an unbalanced tire. Wat what all will I have to do to get this under my tj? I am assumimg the mounts r different?

Wheel pattern is different.
Width is different.
Brackets are different.
Driveshaft yoke is different.
Gear ratio is different most likely (it should have a 3.73 or if out of a stick base model no tow package then a 3.21)
Brake lines are different.

So you need to address each of those.
