Not sure about the spline count(maybe 30), but 03-06 Rubicon's came with D44's F/R with 4.10 gears.

can't swear to it.....heard that the dana 44 front on Rubi is not a true 44.....it is an upgraded standard axle.....with lockers...again I can't swear to it..was something I read on here.

Had to do with the structural supports on the axle itself. not the same as what is on a "true" dana 44...different on TJ Rubis.

It's not, it's a hybrid 30/44.

Yea it's a hybrid D44 on the 03-06 Rubicons

The only Jeeps really to have D44 rear I think where Sahara models had it as either standard or optional choice and i think some of the Sports had options for it.

You could use D44's from a Waggy (wagoneer) or D44s from an early bronco as well.

I have a '99 sport, and using online pics, i identified my rear as a D44...

The JK Rubicons are the only ones with Front & Reat D44's. The JK axle is wider then the TJ axle width and plus the brackets are not in the same location.

In order to use the JK axles you would have to cut the brackets off and put new ones on in the correct location and I believe the the driveshafts use a flange plate instead of yokes.

You could also get it on a Sport as an option, it was also an option for the Sahara's

You should have an HP30, which if you don't plan to go over 35's a lot of people would say keep the 30
Either way, you'd have to weld new brackets on the TJ D44(it has the same WMS as the YJ)
