Talking three questions

im new to the jeep world and loving it already.

I have a 05 tj 2.4l, im wondering if that is enough push a Dana 44 and a 6 inch lift?

cane a Dana 44 from other vehicles work on jeeps?

1) the four cylinder can move the jeep with a Dana 44 and a 6 inch lift, it won't be all that fast. The biggest factor will be what size tires you are going to run, and the biggest thing you can do is to rehear the axles.

2) a Dana 44 from other vehicles can fit, but you will most likely have to trim the axle to fit or fabricate brackets for it to fit.

3) again depends on what you want out of the lift

What size tires are you plan on running to require a 6" lift? 35's ? It will be cheaper to sell yours and buy one with a 4.0 with a D44 axle than do a conversion and still have the weak 4cyl to deal with.
Get to know your Jeep and its capabilities before going that extreme. At least go with a mild lift 2-3" and 32-33" tires with your current stock setup before you think you need to go bigger.

Simple answer = A LOT

Why so much lift?
The amount of money that your are going to have to spend to get 6" of lift, with im guessing 35" tires, from your current set up is not going to be in any way cheap. Also it's also not going to be very effective considering you have a 2.4L. You would be looking at $6,000+ just in Suspension, SYE & CV Shaft, Tires, Steering, Brakes and regear. Thats a very low ball est. Then you are going to have to do something to boost your power a little bit, engine swap or supercharger. probably another $4,000+ depending which way you go. I would say that these prices are on the low end for parts and labor times.

Why not go with a smaller lift that wont require as many mods?
