dana 44 question

Hey guys, I've got a line on what the guy says is a Dana 44 out of a 99 Grand Cherokee. i was wondering about compatabilty with my Tj. I'm assuming I will have to do a bracket swap, but was wondering about width and length as compared to the Tj 44.

Don't do it. Thats a d44a. It has an aluminum housing and uses an oddball gear set. Strength wise they are about the same as a d35.

The d44a housing is made of aluminum which has been known to flex and chew up bearings ask me how I know. Also it is limited to only lunch box lockers ie Aussie (rare) and the Yukon spartan locker. Over all not worth it's weight in pennies. Unfortunately the only axles available for the tj that are bolt in are the d35 and d44 from a tj. Good luck

yeah try to stay away from that 44, honestly if i were you i'd start looking for an 8.8, you can get them for cheap, and they come with disk brakes.

no doors, no top, no problems

Thanks for the replies guys. I thought that was too good to be true at $150.
