dana 44 from cj to jk

My question is there a way to fit this front axle into a jk and if possible would I need a cj drive shaft and transfer case? Im new to the jeep world. My wms to wms is 65 and that one is about 63 or 4. If anymor in info needed let me know. Thanks!

Cj's are leaf sprung and jk's are coil sprung. It would require alot of work relocating the coil spring pads and control arm brackets.

Also your looking at a different bolt pattern on the axles also. Your wheels wont bolt up. This can be changed by swapping out axles for ones with the proper bolt pattern or redrilling for the proper bolt pattern. 5x4.5 i believe

No I think the cj bolt pattern is the same as the JK but I reeally think the width of the cj axle is way too narrow. A TJ axle is too narrow for a JK and the cj axle is even narrower than that... So on top of bracket relocation you would have to extended the tubes and find longer axles

Ohh my mistake. The axle is from a full size wagoneer. Than the width should be fine but agian not sure about the bolt pattern. If I recall wagoneers were a six lug pattern and still a lot of bracket relocating plus they use a yolk style drive shaft mount not a flange like the JK so you would also have to alter your drive shafts

Cj bolt pattern is 5x5.5.

Your jk is a divers side drop for the differential, the Dana in that add is passenger side drop. You can do all the welding and grinding you want too shoe horn it in there, but that won't solve the problem of the front out put for the transfercase being in the wrong place
