Does anyone know of a better rear axle than the stock Dana 44A that i can swap to. I dont want to replace it with something used that is only going to get 20 or 30K before the bearings are shot and im back in the same situation. Thanks.

The 44A is the strongest axle that was used in the ZJ and if rebuilt right will last a whole lot longer than 20-30k miles. My guess is whatever idiot replaced the bearings last time didnt know what he was doing. The 44A is still used today in the SRT8 grand cherokee. It's a lot stronger than people give it credit for.

BTW your front axle is a D30 not a D35
