Time to move out of that pretty powder coated look and step into serious steel!

Any chance you will build a 44A/44HD cover?

The D44A axle is in consideration but I am very leery of Aluminum as a axle center casting material. It simply wears away very quickly if used in the rocks...

My plan is to use the MVC truss/skid to reinforce it...........maybe you could make your own version of a truss/skid for it.

From what I have read they are a very capable axle once they are trussed, but aftermarket support is still lacking.

Does the truss go under it? The 2 I have looked at were used by medium abuse wheelers and the housing was ablot half worn through from rocks.

Seems like alot of clearance lost and the cost you are putting into it you could easily swap an 8.8 or non aluminum D44?

On ZJ's that works but the 8.8 is too narrow for WJ's. Some people have run them with 2" spacers on either side. But even then you also run into speedo, abs and ebrake problems. WJ runs its speedo off of the tone rings on the axle rather than the tcase. At that point you would need to modify a 231 tcase to fit in a WJ or splice the wires with front abs/speedo wires the retain the speedo. I wish it was more simple for us.

Just installed my front D30 cover yesterday. Looks excellent and I feel a lot safer now with that cover on there!
