I put in the Dana 44
6 months ago I got a new Dana 44 for the rear with a Detroit in it. I've been too busy to even look at it and so it sat in the garage. I finally installed it today. It's great. I can't believe what a differance changing the gears to 4.56 made. My power is back like it was when it was stock. I haven't been able to change the gears in the front yet, so I'm driving with no front drive shaft. Despite that it crawls over stuff like it was in 4 wheel. The Detroit locker is great and make very little noise, contrary to some bad stuff I've heard about it. I can't wait to get the front end regeared.
