Axle ID help...Dana44s front and rear?

Bought the jeep this way, just trying to verify what I think I have.

Front axle



Rear



Both are 6 lug hubs, so I am guessing out of a chevy 1/2 ton? YJs did not come from the factory with a D44 front axle, did they? And shouldn't they be 5 lug on a Jeep axle?

Would say it looks like dana 44 f/r. All YJ's had front dana 30 and rear dana 35 5 lug axles.

Yeah, I'd guess Chevy axles as well since you have passenger side front D44. Do you know how wide they are?

So would any care to guess what they are out of? 1/2 ton Chevy or maybe Scout II? Just trying ti think if Chevy had an offset rear axle. I know Scouts had used D/18 tc that had offset rear drive shafts, but I don't know if they used 6 lugs. Still researching that, but the GF keeps kicking me off the computer. She will be leaving for work in a bit, so I hope to figure this out soon.

not sure of width, have not measured yet. Hell, not even sure what distance to measure. I would assume the face of the hub to the face of the other hub, right?

Oh, the rear is offset? I couldn't tell from the photo. It's very unlikely it's a Chevy if it's offset (plus I don't think Chevy used Dana now that I think of it). I'm stumped now. I'd guess Scout, but it's six lug so now I think Isuzu.

Anybody else?

they are prob out of a pick up truck. Are they full length(stick out far) or the same width as the jeep. You can also search the houseing and it should say somewhere

Yeah, they stick out a little, but they are wide rims and 12.5" tires. Not sure if the rims have an offset either.

Older CJ-s has offset rear D44's as well... The front is definitely Chevy, 1/4 ton most likely because it's a 6-lug.

But you can also find offset D60's from J trucks and misc Chevy vehicles like vans... although I think D60's are 8-lug.

If you have a WMS2WMS measurment, it might help identify them a little more... Definitely Chevy though.

you should prob be more worried about getting a rear pumper on that thing. I have people hit me in the back on a weekly basis. Thats what the hitch and ball are for

That will be a while then. I broke my jack the other day and don't want to replace it at the moment. I figure I'd wait until I get a flat tire or something.

Yeah, that is on the list, but seeing that it doesn't run at the moment (fuel pump), it can wait.
