|csala027||I went to their website to get it but I never got an email back from them. Little disappointed. It's been 2 days already|
|09-05-2013 11:56 AM|
did you get your build sheet yet?
|09-05-2013 10:49 AM|
|csala027||does it make it more valuable? or just a better axle to go off roading?|
|09-04-2013 11:52 PM|
|kdilly||No, it was an option from the factory.|
|09-04-2013 11:16 PM|
|csala027||so since my jeep is a 2002 the rear dana 44 is an aftermarket part?|
|09-04-2013 08:15 AM|

Correct , this driving needs speed at times on rough terrain with lots of airborne activities ;-) , for if you loose the momentum the soft sands have no grip.
So need a very different suspension than conventional.

Budget is not a constraint , just want to spend it once and get it right. Had OME on my land cruiser and faced no issues.

|OmniscientHiers||Budget? Entry-level shocks such as Monroe's (rancho), Bilstein 5100s, and OME aren't up to that performance.|

By driving on sand I mean dune bashing in the desert ,currently the jeep came with rancho9000 but am not impressed with these as the jeep is already slagging from the rear.
Appreciate your opinion .

Congrats on the purchase, I got the same vehicle July 2012, post up pix if you have them.
The Dana 44 axle was optional on the Sahara (and Sport), if you get your build sheet you would see this line: DRKP Dana 44/226MM Rear Axle. All Dana 44 axles in 2002 came with 3.73:1 gears from the factory. As was said above the D44 is a heavier duty axle than the standard axle. But you don't have a D44 in the front (unless the prior owner did a swap). As for value I think the D44 axle option was priced about $450 in 2002 and does add a tad to the re-sale value of any TJ.

|greer9904||With the 6sp I'm going to say 4:10 gears. But maybe 4:56 my buddy has 33s and 4:56 but he has the reg 5spd and your trans has low gears in it.|
|08-17-2013 06:48 AM|
|Khwaja||It's a manual 6 gear transmission , done 100k km (65k miles approx). For Sand driving is OME the best suspension or has anyone got better experience .?|
|08-16-2013 07:31 PM|
|OmniscientHiers||32s and 3.73 gears aren't bad.. 33s and up, well you may want to regear.|
|08-16-2013 06:46 PM|
With that axle your definitely good to put 33" tires on it.
As for gearing, you'll definitely want to regear if you go to 33" tires. Which ratio you'll want to regear to completely depends on which transmission you have.
|08-16-2013 03:50 PM|
Thanks , do I need to worry about regearing or can I add more chunky tires ? Was thinking about 32 or 33".
Unfortunately not many qualified / fair priced garages here in Dubai.

Appreciate your help

|elite56||Post a picture of your front and rear axles and we can confirm which axles you have.|

|03 sahara jeeper||If it is a sahara model it should have a Dana 30 front axle. The Dana 44 came on the Rubicon. The Dana 30 front axle has a steel fill plug.|
