If the axle came out of anything but a TJ, you'll have to cut, grind, and weld to get the right brackets on after removing all of the old brackets.

If it doesn't have coil spring buckets next to the brakes, it didn't come out of a TJ. Take a picture and post it here.

If modification is needed I might as well pick up a ford 8.8 which I found for 50$ in MN instead of driving to Iowa to pick an axle up for $1000. Thanks for the help once again.
given the choice between those 2 id get the 8.8. you could pay someone to prep it for a tj and still be way ahead of that d44 in cost. assuming the 8.8 has the correct gears that is.
