There is no benefit to getting a 4 cylinder other than the fact that they usually cost about $3000 less than the 6.Gas mileage is the same also.

There were a lot of TJs made, I would spend the time looking for one with a D44. I wish I did.

About half of them did.
In my opinion its worth finding one up front,
(unless of course you're going to build a big jeep with even bigger axles anyway...)

I think the 44 is the biggest I'd go for now, so I'll probably wind up looking until I find one with either front or rear 44. It's funny that you say up front though because a lot of people only talk about the rear

How do you know?

How do you tell which you have? I have an 06' Rubicon, I know it has a 4.10 rear. Not sure if it has a Dana 44 front or back?

by "up front" I meant "when you buy"

The only front D44 in a TJ will be in the Rubicon. ANd that's not REALLY a 44, it's a 44 center (with some parts that don't work with Normal D44 parts) and D30 outer parts, so it is not one bit stronger than a D30.

The difference between the 35 and 44 is pretty well laid out here: (look for the pictures)
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/4x...nswers-628225/

And that makes more sense now haha, so what you're saying is that if I find one with a 35 or 30 it won't make much difference than if I found one with a 44 center stock?

No.

Rear is either a 35 or 44. 44 is much stronger.
Front is either a 30 or rubi44. They have approx the same strength.

Aside from similar gas mileage, the 6 is naturally perfectly balanced. I4s have inherent roughness. Also, the 6 is known to be very durable and last forever.
