will a brake setup from a d35 bolt onto a d44
 
my wrangler has a d44 rear with drum brakes that i want to change to disc and iv got a grand cherokee with the disc setup on a d35 axle that im junking. basically are the output flanges the same on a d35 and a d44 so i can bolt up the disc brake backing plate? i dont have time to tear both axles down if im not sure it will work and was just hoping someone knew the answer. will be a sweet free upgrade if it would work.

Yup, it's a common swap for TJ owners.

BUMP...I could REALLY use an answer ASAP from anyone, parents are on a war path to tow my brothers Cherokee, and I am fighting them to keep it a few more days.....

no just put it back on the way you took it off the jeep. You can make the ebrake cables work with the disc setup too. So you don't have to go buy new lines.

OK so the drum setup from my TJ can just be installed right over to the ZJ? Thanks, gotta start pulling everthing apart in 3 hours....LONG day ahead of me!:banghead:

Hey who ever has done the swap, did you HAVE to remove the seal and bearing from the axle?? because its gonna cost aroun $80 each side if I have to replace them?

JUST INCASE anyone else was wondering about my question ^^^, I found my answer....as stated for the TeraFlex Rear Disc Brake Kit For 87-06 Jeep® Cherokee XJ, Grand Cherokee ZJ, Wrangler YJ & TJ

Notes:
If you don’t want to replace the wheel bearings it is okay to cut a slot in the preload ring and slide it over the axle shaft.
This kit does not work with ABS sensors. You will not be able to install the ABS sensors into the disc brake mount backing plate.
Some factory Jeep® 15” Wheels may rub on the caliper. Do NOT operate the vehicle until you confirm adequate caliper/wheel clearance.
TeraFlex does not make any Disc Brake Kits to fit factory Jeep® axles built prior to the YJ Wrangler, except for the XJ Cherokee axles.
The years between 1987 and 1991 are the dark years where anything is possible from Jeep®, so check the bolt pattern with the drawing before ordering a kit.
Most aftermarket wheels, especially alloy wheels require longer wheel studs when installing this kit. To make up for the thickness of the rotor. Use NAPA p/n 641-3204 for the longer Jeep® rear axle stud.


so take this FREAKIN drum to disc BS :bottom::flipoff::flipoff::flipoff::bottom:
