Is there a Dana 44 that is the same width of the model 20? I have NT axles but I can add wheel spacers to get to 54.5". I would like to upgrade my front axle and was curious if there is a Dana 44 the same width. I have looked and can't find any. All I have found is Chevy's have the same drop I need but I can't find a link to the lengths.
Does anyone have a link to the lengths and drop sides to axles? I will eventually upgrade both axles but not for a few years. Thanks.

i think he is looking for a front D44. as far as the AMC 20, if you have narrow track, i would think a D44 out of a 72-75 CJ would be the same width. and yes, some '86s came with a D44 rear. they are really not that rare. i've seen plenty 86's with it and have an '86 of my own with the D44...maybe its a northeastern thing lol
some 1986 CJ7's came from the factory with D44 rear axles stock.
Yes they did. There are also D44s found in '72-75 CJs that are the same width as his AMC 20. Then there are those found in Commando's which are the same width and even have the same spring perch spacing.
The thing is:

Why does the scout axle have 0 caster, how did it work in a scout?
Their frames were shaped differently.
