LJ questions

Hey do the LJ´s come with different axles then Tjs , I thought I heard someone say they had dana 44 in the back standard

... and how much longer are they? 18 inches?

Is there anything else different I found an LJ but Im not sure I dont like the look of the longness of it

LJs have a D30 front like the TJs, and ALL LJs have a D44 rear end, where a D44 in a TJ is an upgrade. A Rubi LJ has front/rear D44s just like the TJs. They also have a 103.5" WB where a TJ has a 93.5" WB, so 10" longer WB, and 8" more storage behind the rear seats, so 18" overall longer body. All gearing is 3.73 in the axles except the Rubis which is 4.10s. TJs had 3.07, 3.55, 3.73, 4.10 stock options.

Also, a few more inches of leg room for the backseat passenger area and the rear D44 has a limited slip diff.
One plus with the LWB TJ is, when doing a BB or lift of 3" or less, there's less of a chance you'd need mess with the driveshaft due to any vibes, as it's longer.

LJ's also have disc brakes all the way around have limited slips in the rear axle. They also have a 3500lb towing capacity.

On a side note regular TJs feel like you are driving a go cart after you have driven an LJ for awhile. I drove my TJ for the forst time in at least 3 weeks a few days ago and it literally felt like a go cart. LJs are a much smoother ride esp on the highway.

And on a side note I personally love the look but again I always loved the look of classic scramblers!
