I think I even have most of a d30 install kit too.

I know I have the carrier bearings and the pinion and crush bearings and seals, all new. I think I have a set of shims somewhere too.

It is a superior install kit. Bought it from Northridge 4x4.

I bought this install kit for my d30 arb locker install, but the arb came with everything needed less the consumables(thread locker and gear paint).

This I would sell to you as it is all new...$25 (worth about $125plus)


If you are installing the carrier yourself, I have the tools also(bearing puller, micrometers, bearing press, dial indicator and magnetic holder)

Let me know.

Thats great news, as soon as I get a welder I plan on ripping into the front and seeing how much I can cut away

Not compatable...

RK Truss:


Just realized that Claytons isn't a truss, it is just a different bracket that mounts on top of the diff...

Claytons kit:



Here you can see the bracket on top of the pumpkin:

Have a D44a sitting in my garage that I am going to build up.


Already has 4.56 gears



But wait! Holy CRAP!

Pulled from this thread I called up Randy's R&P and wanted a quote on the axle shafts. The 3x and 4x part numbers is what I would need.

Turns out Yukon doesn't make the shafts anymore, but Dana/Spicer does. Their versions run $322.92 for the passanger and $399.20 for the drivers side Freaking $725 for the axle shafts!

The axle shafts do already come with the wheel bearings pressed on and the lugs installed

Think I'll try and source the Yukon's elsewhere if I can find them...

Wouldn't you be fine with the stock shafts for a while? I understand upgrading, but I would think you'd be fine on the stockers for a while. Are you going to lock it too?

Yeah gonna lock it, and I would probably be fine for a long time on stockers. Just wanted to upgrade them while I have the axle torn apart.

Had to use a hacksaw at the end to get to placaes I couldn't get my grinder...that sucked. Oh well it is off now and I'll never have to deal with that SOB again After ~2 minutes of cutting w/o ear plugs I realized how important they are

It is a 247...and is missing most of the bolts since I have been trying to open the sucker up to see how the PC (Progressive Coupler) works. You're welcome to have it if you want it

Ground off the rest of the truss yesterday and stripped down the axle.
Grinding pics always look cool to me 8-)

All smoothed out:

Axle stripped down as far as I'll take it (might take out the bump stops)

Bent back the brake dust shields (they were damaged from transport)...

The axle shafts I have look to be in good shape, I would however rather start with fresh shafts and use these as trail spares. I am having trouble sourcing shafts for this and unfortunantely may be looking at buying OEM shafts through my dealer contact (so at least a discount)
To buy:
1) New axle shafts (Upwards of $700 - that might wait)
2) Ebrake & regular pads + rotors ($100)
3) New brake lines ($100 for F&R)
4) Aussie locker ($259)
5) Possibly new calipers. These have been sitting outside for 1.5 years with no brake line connected to them. I fear they are rusted inside. ($175)

You should come out to our mod party next weekend. There will be lots of unbolting, bolting, grinding, and unbolting, and bolting.

Axle is looking good man!
