Where can i get a HP Dana 44 front, and a ford 9" rear, w/ same width+lug pattern? How hard is it to fit the high pinion in the front, like what is involved in doing all the steering linkages and stuff like that. Has any one done it?

I don't know what is involved in doing it. You can get the axles from a mid to late 70's ford 4wd pickup. I think78-79 is a good year to look for.

2007 Ford Ranger 4x4 4.0L auto ( I know it's not a jeep but untill I buy my wife a house this is all I am going to have) Future mods: AEV bridgers and some 32's:)
1st jeep:98 TJ sport w/4 inch lift and 33's (wrecked)
2nd jeep:97 TJ sahara locked and loaded w/7" of lift and 35's (sold for WJ)
3rd jeep:2004 grand cherokee WJ special edition
W/MTR 245/75/R16's (sold for 07 Ranger)

your best bet would be to see if you can find a 1975-77 ford bronco thats parting out, youll find a hp dana44 and matching 9inch rear...

sorry one more thing, if you can find a 75 bronco... u may also be able to use the stock steering linkages, they have the standard tie rod set up, whereas later models have an inverted y type ( which is a total crap design imo)

as far as the steering linkage... im pretty sure the box on an early bronco, and most for trucks, sits alot lower on the frame than the box on a tj, your best bet would be to use the steering linkages on the axles you find, or replacement ones made to fit them... and maybe fab a drag link that will fit that angle... im not sure what else is involved...
