dana 44

i have a jeep wrangler and i am going to swap a dana 44 in out of a wagoneer. It has to have the driverside differencial. I was wandering what year to get. I want one with lockout hubs. Is there any year that has bigger u-joints or any other benifits. Thanks in advance.

All GW's were six lug.

I'm sure other years will work but all I'm familiar with are 86-91.

Actually, all Wags and Grand Wags, as wel as Cherokees and J-trucks, used D44 front ends from '80-'91 (the '86-'91 range was for the D44 in back).

You don't want a J-truck or Wide-track Cherokee front axle, as it would be too wide for your application. You also want to avoid the '83-'84 Selectrac vehicles, as they had an oddball vacuum-disconnect front end.

Thanks for the info. oldjeepguy do have on of these. I was wandering if i should get one with the vacuum diconect or the older ones with lockout hubs. I always tthought that that would be a stronger setup? do you know what gear options they came with.
