If only they would have put D44's in the rear of all TJ's the world would be a happier place.

8.8's are easy swaps. Don't waste money on a 35, /thread.

I would have to say agree with the no lunchbox locker in the rear of TJ especially if it is a five speed. I put one in my TJ and it has made it very interesting to drive under acceleration and while turning. While accelerating and shifting it causes the rear end of the jeep to shift around I guess from the loading and unloading of the locker. If you try to make a sharp turn and do not take it out of gear just the resistance of the gears will keep the locker engaged (even with the clutch pushed) and you jeep will buck and chirp the tires.

I have a Sparton so maybe a Aussie or lockrite wiould be different but I am already making plans to sell my D44 to pay for an 8.8 with a selectable locker.

Easy answer. Locker. You'll have to reset the gears anyway, so get new ones to reclaim that power band. Anything worth doing is worth doing right, save up and get a selectable locker for the rear and an S35 kit, or an 8.8 if you dont mind losing some ground clearence in exchange for strength. In the end its cheaper to do something right the first time as opposed to the second time. This true for jeeps, college courses and marriages as well.
