need new spider gears
So I just got my rig back home after being stuck up on a mountian called the Miller Jeep trail it was up there for three days. Just got the diff cover off and found out I need new spider gears in my open dana 44. The sheard off teeth explain all the chatter. So how hard is it to replace the spider gears on this and what parts kit do I need. If anybody outhere has some please let me know.
i need to get this old girl back on the road a cheap as I can where might I find a decent lunchbox locker for not to much money?? Also one that will not require me to have to set up the whole rearend. I would like to be able to do this on a sat and have it all done and back on the road a fast as is possiable

there are a ton for the 44. i have a detroit ez locker- it is cheap and works but it bangs and locks and unlocks rough. i had a powertrax no slip in the rear of an xj cherokee and much quieter and smoother. i vote for a powertrax- it was easy to predict in wet and snow.
Get a lunchbox locker! i went through 4 sets of spider gears in my AMC 20 in 6 months. After that i put an Aussie mechanical locker in it and i've done brake stands and doughnuts without any problems. just stay off the gas around turns or clutch because if you don't it'll grab and it'll feel like someone is pushing you on and off from behind. I've been to uwharrie 3 times this year and also went to a bog and made it where a chevy on 40s couldn't. People say lockers are bad on the road, but they're really no different than a limited slip, except they work better! Don't weld the gears unless you plan on drifting everyturn in town!
