Any recommendations on a good place with deals going on?
Well, a 44 from another TJ is the path of least resistance, however they can be expensive, even used.
Mine was used from an 02 Sport that had been scrapped. In this case, one axleshaft was bent, the side gears were badly damaged, backing plate was bent, the whole thing needed to be rebuilt.
