Can I swap in a Dana 44HD for my Dana 35?
In a previous post, I determined that I have to replace my rear end as just about all the gears inside are worn.
My current axle is a stock Dana 35 3.73 with track lock. I found an ad for a Dana 44A or 44HD off a WJ. It has calipers, but nothing in the ad about a track lock system. The guy is also selling a locker for it though.
So my question is, would this be a viable option for a replacement? Would it just bolt right in and would the brake lines that feed the drums, also swap over easily to the calipers?
Even if this axle is a viable option, how easy is it to swap a Dana 35 for a Dana 44? Do I need to buy a kit or anything? Sorry for the noob, questions, but I haven't had to deal with drivetrain issues much until now.
