TJ Rubicon Axle(s) - Near Austin
Okay so I sold off my 2 door 2012 Rubicon and am looking to buy (or maybe just upgrade factory) new axles for my 2000 Wrangler. Currently its the factory Dana 30/35c with 4.10 gears and some Dynatrac Pro Series diff covers (open diffs).
I'm thinking about upgrading the front D30 with a 27 spline chromoly or 27 spline CV and a Detroit locker with 4.88 gears.
I am looking to find at least a rear Dana 44 out of a TJ Rubicon complete with the factory air locker. Ideally I would like to find the front/rear Dana 44's with the air lockers in them (or even just the housings if thats all I can get ahold of).
I really only want the 44 out of another Wrangler so it is the proper width and will have my current wheels/tires bolt up without any spacer/adapter.
If anyone knows where I might be able to find some TJ Rubicon axles, please let me know. I've looked around on craigslist and whatnot and haven't had any luck. Only 44s I've found have been from everything besides a Jeep (minus one rear JK 44, but I don't want to swap JK 44's in) which would be too wide and I don't want to have to mess with shortening the axles.
Besides the TJ Rubicon 44's, what other axles of similar strength will be the proper width and easily adapted to my 2000 Wrangler? I currently wheel my Jeep with 33x12.5s and haven't had any issues, I think I got one of the good D35c's. I also don't spin my tires when crawling at Hidden Falls through any of the 3-4 trails (its made it through Midnight Run a few times) and if I do get wheel spin, I back off and try again until I make it through with minimal strain on the drivetrain. Id like to get to the point where I can be a little more aggressive with my Wrangler and be able to at least put a TrueTrac in the 35 and a Detroit Locker in the 30 (upgraded axles in both), a Detroit Locker in the 30 and swap a 44 in the rear with a TrueTrac, or swap both front/rear TJ Rubi 44's with selectable air lockers.
