Tennessee Thread

Have one of these on my Tacoma forum and it's a great way to get quick answers to questions others may know and meet people in your area. This is just for discussion, planning meets, posting photos from trail rides, and what not.

Question I had is what would it take to swap a danna 44 into a 1999 TJ with a D35? How hard is it to find a linked D44 vs a Leaf sprung D44? Any help would be appreciated.

One route would be to find a late 80's junkyard XJ dana44. I got mine for $90. Get lucky and you may not have to regear. Then buy a TJ mount kit and weld it on. You can search a little more and find junkyard ZJ brake caliper mounts and calipers, and have a rear 44 with disk brakes.

Another way to go is to find someone selling a Wrangler 44. Mounts are already there and bolts right up, but people usually want a lot for the ones they have.

The last way is to call Currie if you have the $$ to blow. I wish I could call them up and order a 44 front... but I'll be going the junkyard route for that too.

Thanks man! Looks like I'll be lookin through junkyards. $90 ain't bad at all. And like you said, might not even have to regear. How much does a TJ mount kit run? And is it a good bit of welding? Don't mind welding at all, just seeing what I'm getting myself into.

It looks like the price has gone up since I bought mine. Here is a link to just one brand. There are several.

Looking at ads on here... people are asking for between $800 and $1400 for their TJ dana 44s.
