I don't know the difference between the the Dana that I have vs the one that they use in USA but is the one that came stock with the wk, it has the qtII. The gas is very cheap I fill the tank of the wk with 25 cents it is cheaper than a bottle of water.
25 cents.... that makes me want to cry.... I spend at least $65 a tank.
The axle you have is made by the Dana Corporation and is similar to the axle that US/Canada WK's use. We here in the states have Chrysler built 8.25 axle (the 8.25 refer's to the ring gear diameter but in reality it is actually now 213mm or 8.34 inches). The only WKs here in the states that use a Dana 44A are the SRT-8 editions - but they are totally different beasts! I had the Dana 44A in my old 1998 ZJ and contrary to what anyone said it was beefy and strong as hell.
It just seems weird that Jeep would put a different axle in production for another country...
