So this would work with the coil spring mounts?

Kevbz Its the wheel base you have to look for. a TJ dana is set up for a TJ, a Dana 44 for anything else would need to be shortened and worked over...like it was said, if you cant find a D44 for a TJ, a ford 8.8 is the closest.

Finding something with the right gears is the number one thing...but you are looking for a grain of salt in a dessert...D44 are hard to just drop down a pick up from somewhere, with out dropping alot of money

Yes you can add mounts, but if you are going to go that route you will be better of with an 8.8 from an explorer...

That one is is a full with and is a 6 lug and has disks and is set up for leaf springs and has the wrong gearing.

Short answer no it wont work. Look for a D44 from any TJ.
