I don't believe so.
Somebody explained to me awhile back that the Rubicon gears are different than than non-Rubicon gears, which is why when you try to buy gears online you have to select whether their for a "Rubicon D44" or a "non-Rubicon D44." I can't remember what the explanation was . . . .
But in any event, it explained why you don't see folks selling their "rubicon takeoff" gears. They won't fit properly in a non-Rubicon diff housing.
Hopefully somebody can stop by to really explain it, or correct me if I'm wrong.
