I have a D35C in the rear and a D30 n the front. And I will not be going over 35s lol

The only Jeeps really to have D44 rear I think where Sahara models had it as either standard or optional choice and i think some of the Sports had options for it.

You could use D44's from a Waggy (wagoneer) or D44s from an early bronco as well.

You could also get it on a Sport as an option, it was also an option for the Sahara's

jp2611 My '04 Tj Sport has a Dana 44 rear. My '12 JK sport has a Dana 44 rear.

snwchris The JK Rubicons are the only ones with Front & Reat D44's. The JK axle is wider then the TJ axle width and plus the brackets are not in the same location.

In order to use the JK axles you would have to cut the brackets off and put new ones on in the correct location and I believe the the driveshafts use a flange plate instead of yokes.

I have a '99 sport, and using online pics, i identified my rear as a D44...
and my build sheet from Chrysler says the say...

Had to do with the structural supports on the axle itself. not the same as what is on a "true" dana 44...different on TJ Rubis.

It's not, it's a hybrid 30/44.

Atmos sounds about right. user on cherokee forum thinks he's buying a front and rear 44 combo of an 01 tj for $100 haha
just trying to set him straight thanks

gixxerphil Not sure about the spline count(maybe 30), but 03-06 Rubicon's came with D44's F/R with 4.10 gears.
