I think some of the dana 44's are 6 lug, when I was looking to swap my rear end a lot of people told me that I would have to get new wheels with it, which is part of the reason I'm going with the 8.8

An early '80s Wagoneer had a D44 in the back with a 6 on 5.5" bolt pattern.

Full size jeeps, Isuzu, Toyota, and Chevy all use the 6 lug pattern.

toyota rear axles are good and beefy, but i think closer in strength to a D44 than a D60. They do make full float conversion kits for them, they're drop out style 3rd members, and of course, factory available electric lockers.

Another thing to consider if you're looking for something a little more than a D44... Isuzu used a corp 12-bolt axle (no its not GM, this is Isuzu corp) thats compairable in strength to a D60/Ford 9". Its got a 9.6" ring gear, removable 3rd member, 6 lug, I believe it would be about 60" wide, comes stock with 4.56 gears, and ARB makes an airlocker for it.

If you don't mind 6-lug, another good choice is the Isuzu D44. Found on the rears of any Rodeo/Passport after 93. 58" wide, disc brakes, 4.10 or 4.30 gearing, many have factory LSD.

1987 - 1991 Grand Wagoneers had 60" wide D/44's front & rear. Early 80's had an AMC 20 with factory one-piece axles and thick axle tubes and is also a great axle to swap in.

see i have the front dana 44 out of a wagoneer i'm just looking for a good match (the rear wasa a dana 20 on that wagoneer ) all the dana44 rears i found in that yard were offset thanks a ton for the info i have known about the isuzu dana 44 and the toyotas i didn't know the strength of them i would have went with the 8.8 if i didn't finf this dana 44 for $170 i figured hey can't beat that any where so i picked it up i want to find a 4runner axle (toyota 8") with 4.30 or 4.56 gearing with the electric lockers damn that would be nice ( no gear changine or locker installation bill)
i know how to do alot of work but re-gearing isn't one of them ( unless is third member style like the yota axles and the 9" fords )
