you get down on ur hands and knees and you look at the rear differential.

A d35 has a black plastic/rubber plug and is round shaped (also make sure that if it does have the metal plug the case is also hexagon, not round like the pic... aftermarket covers usually come w/ a metal plug so..), a D44 will have a metal plug also be hexagon.



D44

Is there a difference between European Saharas and US Saharas?
Over here all Saharas have rear D44s, A/C, auto tranny, top-in-top, CD-radio ad more.

TommyFTR I agree with flattietj. Keeps your eyes out and grab up a Rubicon.

flattietj yeah if you can wait and neither have the d44 dont even waste your time getting one of those.......i cant believe you cant find a rubi for around the same price...

Mooseman Don't take the salesmen's word on it, he probably doesn't know or care which diff it has. Take a look for yourself. Look under the rear bumper at the differential cover, if it has a metal fill plug it's a Dana 44, if it has a plastic pop in plug its a Dana 35. There's a thread about 3 pages back labled "Axle Identification" that has some excellent info.

Triple88a Check which one has the D44.. if the x has the 44, go with that. I assume since the sahara has the "towing package" it would have the stronger diff (d44)

scotiez I have a 2003 X and i love it. But i also have a hard top. I wouldn't be with out one, especially in the winter. I also have a manual trans, which is just fine for me. I don't do any rock crawling for it to matter. So If your lookin for a soft top and hard top, and you don't mind shifting then buy the Sahara. If you want only a soft top and an automatic then by the X. The Price is a thousand dollars difference, Which do you like better? Also if you buy the X the price could easily go up a thousand dollars depending if you find a deal on a hard top or not.

wicho001 Ok thanks alot men, Where can I find a Hard Top? but I dont want to pay $1800 for it.
12-03-2008 04:01 PM
Jerry Bransford I'd go for the X. Plus its 4-speed auto tranny is sweet for wheeling offroad, I just converted my 5-speed manual to an automatic earlier this year for my rock crawling.
12-03-2008 03:59 PM
wicho001 Wich one would you choose?

2004 Wrangler X with 51,880 milles, soft top, automatic transmission for 11,900 plus applicable
fees.

and

2003 Wrangler Sahara with 95,000 milles,manual transmission, with Hard and Soft Tops and towing package on it for 10,900(Without Discussion)
