Might be a stupid question but...You sure you got the left hand one on the left hand side? I forget if the bolt holes are the same side to side or not. As far as I know, all Dana 44's have the same 4 bolt holes, the same goes for the 35's (I've had quite a few 44's and 35's come past my way and they were all the same, from FSJ/XJ/TJ's on the 44's and XJ/MJ/YJ/TJ's on the 35). Might be another stupid question but gotta ask it, are you sure it's a 44 back there and like a 35, 8.25 or AMC 20? Just trying to get all the info straight so I can help out where I can. Also make sure that the brackets that were ordered for the Orvis are for the 44 or 35. Do you have the part number for the brackets?
