So today I picked up a dana 44 in great condition along with the driveshaft for... A whopping $400.
I can't wait to install it next weekend

Are you going to paint it? I did the exact thing the past few weeks.

Clean out the axle tubes and differential with brake cleaner thoroughly at the least. Just put it in last weekend with no problems.

Day I got it:
