Ford 9 Inch and HP dana 44
I recently stumbled upon an add for a 9 inch and HP dana 44 for 250$
"ford 9 inch (31 spline) and HP dana 44 out of a 78 ford f-150, the dana 44 is complete down to the links. the ford nine inch has had all the brackets cut off and jeep tj coil buckets tacked on. "
I'm currently only on 2.5" of lift with 31" tires but plan to go 33-35" in time.
I've been searching craigslist for axles for a few months just trying to find a deal, or really anything... I live in Vancouver, BC. so finding a 44 is very rare, and 8.8 just as bad.
Anyway I'm mainly just wondering if this is a decent deal? and I'm assuming that since the 9inch already has the buckets tacked on there really isnt too much work involved in making that a strait bolt on swap? Also if i would need a SYE for the swap? Or really any other information...
(And yes I have searched the 9inch on the forum a little bit, and have been getting mixed results in terms of the questions I had)
Edit: Due to having a d35/d30 setup now with 3.07 gears, I would have to re gear anyways for the 33"
