    Hey everyone, new to the forum here and have a couple questions. I have a 1997 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4.0L 4WD automatic. My front Dana 30 axle is roughly around 200k miles old and has seen much better days. I am looking into doing an axle swap. I heard the 1994 Jeep Cherokee XJ is a direct bolt...

    Hey folks! Looking for some help and advice here, hoping this isn't a nuisance post, I've done a lot of searching and couldn't find answers I needed. To start with, I've got a '99 Saraha TJ, 4.0, Auto, with stock axles (30/35) with 4" lift and 35" tires. It is NOT my daily driver. I recently...

    I have a 2007 2 door wrangler x. Currently about to swap out the front dana 30 with the J8 dana 44. I am going to keep the rear wrangler x dana 44 for the time being but will be upgrading that as well. Here is everything I plan to do with the front J8 axle along with the stock rear dana 44. If...

    I am going to be swapping out my stock dana 30 front axle. I was going to go with a Rubicon 44 front axle housing but I have heard the J8 44 housing is a lot better. Can I please hear your input on this? What are the differences. Are both of these axles the same width also, I didn't want my...

    So im a broke high school student i bought my 98 tj 4.0 last July. I would like to lift it with an RC 3.25 suspension lift and put 33's on it but i want to do it right and upgrade axles as well as to not destroy the ones i have now. So my question is can i pull an 8.8 (preferably 3.73 or 4.10)...

    This is my first post to this forum even though I've had my Jeep for almost 2 years. I would consider myself better than the average joe with mechanical stuff and working on my Jeep but don't know much about this topic. Now to the point. I recently bought a Dana 60 rear axle that is the start...

    Howdy Folks, I realize the issue of swapping out a Dana 35 to a Dana 44 for a TJ has been brought up several times on this site, however, I really never see people discuss the cost advantages of building used vs. buying new, which leads me to my question. I currently have an '03 TJ running 35s...

    (Mostly) stock JKU Sport, manual transmission, currently running 17" stock wheels with 32" stock tires. Want to get more adventurous on the rockier trails, and a set of taller shoes seems to be logical step. Now, when I say "logic"...well, here's an example of my "logical" thinking regarding my...

    Entertaining the idea of going to a 3 link system with my new axle swap project coming up for my JK. Doing the research on 3 links and I feel a bit over my head. So if anyone could give me the low down on a few things, that might help me make a decision that I won't regret later down the trail...

    Hey Guys! I am fairly new to this forum and I recently did an 8.8 swap into my 1999 TJ. I don't do much hard wheeling but my Dana 35 wore out an axle bearing because the spider gears started to chip and wreak havoc. Before I did the swap, I started to research all of the forums and databases...

    Hey guys I've recently scored a fairly good deal on pair of 2015 Rubi axles with less then 6000 miles on them and finally got them installed the last weekend. Axles are complete assembly takeoff, with brakes, ABS sensors and cables, tie rod and even with the drag link so it was pretty straight...

    This past weekend, my dad and I finally finished a 5 year project. Vehicle we are working on is a 2001 TJ with a 4 cylinder automatic. Shouldn't have taken so long but illness and other issues gave way to the long time span. We did many alterations but among those was a swap from a 3.73 axle...

    Hello All, so i have done some research and found that my 1999 TJ (or any TJ for that matter) will take a XJ axle with no issues, i understand that its a direct bolt in but where i get a little lost on all the threads is that there was a change mid year of 1999 on the XJ that had to do with the...

    Hi Everyone! I have attempted to research many different threads on this topic but it seems like so may things vary depending on what each person wants in the long run so I thought I would start my own. First, some details! My Jeep right now: - 1998 TJ w/ the 4.0, 2" spacer lift, D30 up front...

    I have a four banger with stock gears (4.11's) with 35 inch BFG ATs. I bought it less than a month ago, and this is my first jeep. The previous owner never took it off the asphalt, so he was never really worried about the stock gears with 35's. I've already taken it to the woods, and its a dog...
  19. YJ General Discussion Forum
    So I'm new to Jeeps and to the forum but I am doing my best to get into it. I have a 1988 YJ with a little 2.5 in it. Right now I have 33" BFG AT's. (contemplating 35's) I still have the stock axles (from what I've read, front: dana 30 with a 4.10 gear ratio and rear: dana 35 with 4.10 as...

    I have been thinking about trying to do a swap of my D30/D35 for a D44 and have a question. I found a D44 front and rear from a '79 Wagoneer for $700 for the pair and wanted to know if it's possible to use these in a '98 TJ. If so what all would be involved? Thanks, KC
