Dana 44 Axles
 
Hi, Just wondering is it possible to buy a 'Stock' Jeep Wrangler Sport with Dana 44 front and rear axles. My neighbor has an '02 Sport and claims it has these. Say's he ordered it from the factory this way. I've seen them with Dana 44 rear's and 30 front. Just curious.

my sport came with a 44 rear and a 30 front.
im pretty sure only rubi's came with 44's front and rear.

That's the way my wife's jeep is. 44 rear 30 front. Just be sure. :)

This is a 44 pattern

You're neighbor lies...

Welcome to WF!

Thanks guyz. Could he have ordered a sport with the 44's ? This is possible, right? I'm going to look tomorrow to be sure. He indeed did order alot of 'optional' equipment when he purchased new.

anything is possible but I highly doubt(sp?) that he ordered a 44 for the front... he probably has the 44rear/30front

That's what I'm thinking. He's my neighbor and I hate to call him a liar.. Lol.
But was just wondering if it was possible to have gotten one from the factory this way, a Sport, not a Rubi.

I'll look up underneath it tomorrow w/info Mr. Clifford gave me. Thanks Mr!!

R1Gal 10-23-2006 10:25 PM

This is the 30 pattern.

Very easy to distinguish between the two :)

This is a good picture of a Dana 30 front axle.

Thanks again Mr. Cliff.

It could be entirely possible to order a 44 for the front if you were completely ordering a rig from scratch. However DC did not start using a 44 in the front until 2003 when the Rubicon model was debuted. So the 2002 that your neighbor has does not have a 44 in it.
