Warn is full of it. The only Waggie 44's that can't be converted are the '83-84 models with the center, vacuum disconnect. Take the chrome cover off the hub end and you should see a snap ring on the end of the axleshaft. Remove that and there should be another one in an outermost ring of the wheel bearing hub body. Take that one out and the drive flange should slide out. Replace these parts with your favorite brand of lockouts. Keep the drive flange parts in your trail parts bag/box. They make great repair parts should you blow a lockout while wheeling.

Basically all Dana 44's use the same hub assembly except for Scout. You can pick just about any year (starting with mid-70s through late 80's) 1/2 ton Jeep, Ford, or Chevy and end up with the same hubs. You get the lockouts assembly only. This will be the dial, dial face, the engagement gear, and other misc. parts.

I was thinking about buying a Waggy 1985 D44 front axle from someone. I was also curious as to converting the hubs to manual. From what I have read here, there should be no problem. I have no personal experience with a front axle like this. I'm trying not to open too big of a can of worms. Can I convert the 6 on 5.5, to a 5 on 5.5 lug pattern? Am I looking at changing the hubs(typical CJ parts?), using the same spindle? Assuming this can be done, I would then be able to install manual locks? Am I going in the right direction, or am I missing something? Thanks to anyone that can help.

Go to the Pirates of the Rubicon bulletin board and search the Jeep board for the conversion info. It has been covered a hundred times there if once. Be sure and do a thorough search before you ask any questions there though. Repeating of info is not taken lightly there and you'll get a tongue lashing if you ask basic questions without searching first. www.pirate4x4.com
