Jerry Bransford Yep, the Dana 30 just happens to have a strong resemblance to the Dana 44... you do have a Dana 30 up front.

geoffmarton Thanks all! Buying used just makes me keep wondering what kind of fun surprises I'll get. The D44 rear was certainly a good one!

GoldenSahara00 Either way the Tj d44 isn't that much stronger than the d30 and if your sticking to 33s I would lock it anyways. Even on 35s although you may want to switch to a hp30 later and add things like shafts u joints etc.

The indentation to the driver's side of center does not continue all the way to the top.

Insight from the experts?

If I'm indeed lucky enough to have both, should I add lockers to my wish list? Not worth a couple thousand to me, but if I already have the axles, it could be a nice start to a Rubiclone...
That is a D30.

I would say Dana 30. Im pretty sure the only tj's that came with Dana 44 front were the Rubicons.
