I swapped mine out just like yours. It was an 05 Rubi axle also. You will need to get a different e-brake cables because of disc brake, new ds, and new u-joint.

Is it a disc brakes? If so then yes, you will need new e-brake cable. No new ds or u-joint is needed. I should of read it more clearly.

Try to get the driveshaft with the diff. It may be a little bit shorter.

This should be obvious, but just to make sure. You will need new gears (ring/pinion) if your front gears are not 3.73 as well.

When I swapped mine (a 2000 d44 into a 99) I needed nothing. Ebrake cables were the same. Hardware was the same. My driveshaft worked because I had a 4" lift, which stretches out the slip yoke, or DS, so the extra inch the d44 sticks in further at the pinion was taken back up by the slip yoke.

Even able to scavenge brake lines, drums, shoes, etc from the d35. They all interchange.

Yea I believe that's what I was told by a guy from the shop I'm getting it installed at but wasn't sure If it was from a rubi then a couple of thing would need to b changed

it was a pretty easy install. nothing stood out like OMG now what I going to do?

I did take a little bit of time after the d35 was out and ziplock and label what bolts went where, and went to the hardware store and bought everything new that I could match up. (couldnt find the sway bar ends bolts, it a special shoulder bolt). Kind of piece of mind thing. It you are having a shop do it, might be worth asking about. Some of my hardware was to gunked up and rusty to re-torque and feel comfortable with.

The shaft might work. If not bring it to a driveshaft shop and they can shorten it for you.

Are you sure it's a D44? I thought all the 2003 and up rear TJ D44s were disc brakes.
