|Johnepp||I'm thinking about using the 8.8 since it has the same bolt pattern. Until I find a front axle.|
|07-08-2013 08:53 AM|
|WOKNROX||What axle are you gonna use?|
|07-07-2013 11:18 PM|
|Johnepp||Any one recommend a welding shop in San Diego that can weld the brackets on for my axle swap?|
|07-06-2013 10:24 PM|
|Johnepp||I also picked up a ford 8.8|
|07-05-2013 09:39 PM|
|Johnepp||Yeah I'm sure ill find a good one one of these days.|
|07-05-2013 02:45 PM|
Keep looking.. you'll find one...
|07-05-2013 02:21 PM|
|Johnepp||I'm going to hit the yards up again tomorrow, most of them were closed yesterday for the 4th. The one one craigslist is a little more than I want to pay for one.|

There's a HP Ford d44 complete on SD Craigslist in Ramona...
There's also a Detroit locker on there to....
If you pick up the Ford axle....it'll be 63" and 5 on 5.5 lug....so just run 1" or 1.5" spacers on the rear that'll change it from 6 lug to the 5 lug...and it'll give you the extra width...
Hope this helps

|Johnepp||Any recommendations on fab shops in San Diego?|
|07-04-2013 06:57 PM|
|Johnepp||I looked for the waggy front but couldn't find any. Now I need to find a fab shop that can fix me up some mounting brackets.|
|07-04-2013 05:34 PM|
Sweet....that's the one you want...
Those axles come with huge breaks...same size as the front Waggy/J20 d44 you'll want for the front....
|07-04-2013 05:27 PM|
|Johnepp||If I measured correctly its 60" it has 4:10 with LSD. I found it at ecology salvage in Chula Vista. They have 3 of them there. And it came with the whole brake system.|
|07-04-2013 05:21 PM|
They come in 58" and 60"...
What gear is in it? does it have the LSD?
|07-04-2013 04:14 PM|
|Johnepp||I picked up a D44 from a '97 Isuzu rodeo. Still looking for a frontD44.|
|07-04-2013 11:36 AM|
|07-04-2013 11:34 AM|
I was looking to get $300 for the rear and maybe $250 for the front. I'm open to offers.
|07-04-2013 12:42 AM|
|Johnepp||I'm going to go check out the junk yards tomorrow and see what I can find.|
|07-03-2013 11:27 PM|

|WOKNROX||Both of the front axles I mentioned earlier will allow you to have locking hubs and have true Dana 44 C's 3/8" walled x 3.5 thick tubes.... they won't need sleeves and do not have Unit bearings...these are the real deal...|
|07-02-2013 11:11 PM|
|WOKNROX||I believe jk axles are.65" wide...|
|07-02-2013 11:00 PM|
|Johnepp||Will it fit a TJ?|
|07-02-2013 10:11 PM|
|Johnepp||How much are you asking?|
|07-02-2013 09:13 PM|
I have a D44 rear axle out if a JK. It's complete minus brakes. It even has a Riddler cover. I also have a empty D30 that has been sleeved and gussetted in all the right spots.
|07-02-2013 09:06 PM|
|Johnepp||Any other advice I gladly welcome also.|
|07-02-2013 08:37 PM|
|Johnepp||Thanks a lot for the info. I'm new to jeeps so I'm trying to learn as much as possible. Everyone's says I need to get rid of my 35 because it'll break often. I just put a rubicon express 4.5 super flex lift on it with a teraflex sye kit. I want to get the most out of my TJ without having to worry about my stock axles.|
|07-02-2013 06:00 PM|
For the front...I'd get either an 81 and new wagoneer it'll be 61" wide with matching 6 lug...or a HP Ford...there's one on Cluster now for a few hundy without outers.....but this axle is 63" wide and 5lug.....so if you get Dodge flattop knuckles there is some on EBay now....and run Chevy spindles this will get you back to 61" wide and 6lug....
Any of these axles are far superior to the stock 44s found in a Tj...
This is just my $.02 based on my own experiences with the Dana 44s...
Hope this helps to give you some direction
|07-02-2013 05:49 PM|
|Johnepp||I'll give them a call. Thanks for the advice.|
|07-02-2013 05:26 PM|
Give some of the Mod Houses a call. If they don't have them, they will at some time or be able to point you in a direction that does.
Rebel Off Road, JPi are two good places to start.
