If you had this and needed that to build ......

a jeep.

Ok here is what you have

89 YJ wrangler frame in great condition with Rubicon express 4.5" extreme lift kit.

A real nice T-18 transmission with the 6.3-1 1st gear

A real nice Dana 20 that was original to the T-18 front output on passenger side

Nice Rear Dana 44 from a Grand Wagoneer with centered diff that needs re-gearing for 33" tires.

Front Dana 44 from Grand Wagoneer with drivers side diff that needs re-gearing for 33" tires.

Now is decision making time.

Would you keep the T-18/Dana 20, put in the rear Wagoneer Dana 44 and buy a new front Dana 44 with passenger side diff and use the Wagoneer 44 front for something else? Why? What other 44 front swap options?


would you you keep the T-18 get a different T-case with drivers side output and put in both the front and rear Wagoneer Dana 44's and use the Dana 20 t-case for something else? Why? What other T-case options?

Thanks for the input.
