I live north of Benton, but I work at Flight Safety in Wichita. I'm usually driving down 21st or Greenwich at around 7:30am and 5:00pm. If I forgot to wave, sorry!!!

The new building is A LOT smaller than the others, but it means less people for me to deal with... Arguing with engineers is not something I'm very good at, yet.

I got stuck because I was too close to the edge and slid in... at least I only submerged it 9 or 10 inches. I'm tellin' you, if I had lockers (and maybe a lift kit), I probably wouldn't have called you (but those lockers aren't coming till I put my front and rear Dana 44's on this spring). My only mistake, other than letting it slide into the river, was shutting it off after trying to get myself out, but you know, gas prices these days....



and then

^^^ Yeah, I've been looking at those too, but am wondering about the quality of the parts he uses. I'd be real interested in buying one to replace my rear D35.

I've always wondered how that guy was working this deal because the axle bracket kit from MORE is $329 plus shipping.

Would one of these ford 8.8s be a better replacement for my D35c than a brand new D44 from G2 with all the extras (lockers, 33 splines)? I'm looking at both, but can't decide...

Depends on price tag. I like the Dana 44 better than the 8.8 because the 8.8 is a CClip axle. But people don't break them. I didn't on 37s.

I'm looking at around $1600 for the rebuilt 8.8 with the lockers, and about $2300 for the new D44 with Detroit lockers and disc brakes.
Would an 8.8 on the back and a D44 on the front work, as long as they're both geared the same?

Sorry all for jacking this thread, I'm just a little curious, and am trying to expand my knowledge of, well, everything involving Jeeps. Anyway, I think I'm done.
