I stopped by the local dealer here and looked at a new shiny red Wrangler they had on the lot. It was an X model and I was just chilling in the driver seat checking things out. I looked over at the new window sticker and something caught my eye. DANA 44!!! I hopped out of the Jeep and ran around to get a closer look through the window where the new build sheet/sales sticker was. In plain day it said 4.10 Gear, Dana 44, Trac-Loc upgrade - 245 Dollars
My mouth dropped. I could not believe what I just read. I went behind the Jeep and looked under the rear of the chassis. Sure enough in all its glory a beefy Dana 44.
The shocker is... I cant find this option on the Jeep website when I try and build a X model Wrangler. How in the world do you get this option?
I guess since they got rid of the Sport and SE, you can now order an X model with a Dana 44, but you cant find it on the Jeep.com site.
Either the Tow package OR the trac-lok gets the Dana 44. This is specified when you do the tow option, but was a surprise to me on the trac-loc......Not mentioned anywhere on the Jeep configurator. I was pleased!

Yeah, I'm a Junkie...
The difference is ths stock 6spd. dana 44 comes with 3.21 gears,and for your $295 upgrade you got the 4.10's.I wish I had but at the time the only Jeep Green(my favorite color by far) x model for sale had 3.21's, but 4.10's are definitly planned!
Took my buddy to go get his 07 X w/ a D44. I was surprised to see all the Xs with a D44. I finally saw ONE with a D35 and was surrpised. The new D35 has a metal fill plug rather then the old rubber plug. Now you will actually know what you are looking at to tell the difference.
