Add up all the brackets and an air locker for the Waggy. Oh, new wheels too.
but with the waggy front he would have a true dana 44 not a dana 30/44 crossbreed.

Lockouts explode, it takes more tools to replace a broken stub shaft.
Why don't you explain to Spidertrax about how unit bearings suck. Or how the 2 on the front axle of my Cummins lasted 185k.

Shall I go on?

Down grade my S35 to a R44. No thanks.

Install a Waggy or R44 front? No thanks. I'll take a HP30 over either.

last thing... the ol turd polisher hahahaha :flipoff2:.. and it looks like he wants a real 44 instead of a rubi so lets get back to the tech.

as far as steering goes u can get a kit from ballistic fab with all your DOM, inserts, hiem or 1 ton ti rod ends, and jam nuts. and to change it from 6 to 5 you need to get chevy small bearing spindles and ford hubs and rotors( that is if u are keeping the waggy knuckles or chevy flattops) ive got ballistic fab xj/ tj coil buckets and lower ca mounts, then rubicon express upper mounts and truss. ive got a 4 inch lift on my tj and i had to go back to a stock pitman arm so i could get the correct geometry on my drag link and trac bar. hope this helps ya man

If the OP wants a "real 44" then he should ditch the Waggy idea. Then go find a 3/4 ton Ford HP44.
Swapping from a LP to an LP is a waste.

Marcus,
Leave your inbred childish comments somewhere else. They are not welcome on JF

. Waggy's are not an upgrade and low pinions suck in general. All this talk of "real" 44 is a joke as far as I'm concerned. After you go through the waggy and shine it up (or any other 44 for that matter), you still have the same common failure point as the 30. Everybody cries "bigger ball joints" but how often do you see 30s blow balljoints (on 35s and smaller tires) ? I've seen more Waggy's break ball joints than I have 30s. Typical waggy failure: the ujoint goes, the driver stays in it a second too long and the balljoints go, then the wheel falls off. I've never seen that happen to a 30, have you?.

I've seen way too many friends build d44s, then realize that 44s aren't an upgrade, and build a 60. If you need durability beyond the hp30, go 9", 60, or bigger.

98 XJ:4.0, AW4, HP30/8.25 4.56 Spartan/LSD, alloy shafts & joints, HD steer, SYE/CV, skids, RADesigns gated shifter, RE mix n match lift, 35"mt/rs, THOR guards F&R, weld-in custom rockers & stiffeners, custom front bumper, orfab rear bumper, THOR cowl induction, on board air, on board welder, etc

And Tim Cameron broke the knuckle off of a 2.5ton Rockwell.
Anything can be broken. My point is why spend a thousand dollars for no gain.
