I'm looking into swapping my axles. I found dana 44 with 410s and disc brakes. does it matter what year they are out of and what also what else do i need to change to make the disc brakes work.
You will need the ebrake cable (not sure how it works) and be able to bleed the brake lines. As long as the axle is out of a Tj (97-06) it should fit fine.I'm looking into swapping my axles.

Some have done it:Is it possible to use the stock lighting on the speedometer panel for the front and rear lockers? I noticed them today in the upper right-hand part of the panel.
Yes, but sadly they seem to be going out of business.Superior axles is the brand of axle shafts isn't it?
Wow, so sad to hear. For a company that invented the "super kits" they didn't last too long. Had a great reputation as well. I guess it isn't all just about product quality... I'm glad I found a Dana 44 to replace my Dana 35 and didn't order a super 35. Thanks for the Info
Supposedly they started back in 1934 (or at least the beginnings of what would become Superior):Wow, so sad to hear. For a company that invented the "super kits" they didn't last too long.
Good to know. I'm going to edit the list down, because I definitely want lockers.Out of the list you provided, the Detroit TrueTrac is NOT a locker, it a a gear driven limited slip and will lose traction once a tire is lifted or if you rock crawl.
How big of a tire will You runI'm resurrecting this thread again. I've found a few used Dana 44 axle sets (front and rear) for sale. Should I consider a stock set with disc brakes, 4.10 gears, and factory lockers, or am I better off putting money into an aftermarket set?
There's a substantial cost difference. Again (and as I've mentioned before), I want to do this correctly rather than waste time and money.
Does it come with the factory locker pumps? The factory tj rubicon lockers can only take a maximum of like 6 psi before they blow the internal bladder. And its really hard finding any like new replacment pumps for them since most aftermarket pumps nowadays are way higher then 6 psi. Not to mention it will be difficult to maintain 5 psi with an aftermarket pump.Probably going with 35" at the maximum.
I'm resurrecting this thread again. I appreciate the responses so far. Between this forum and the club I belong to, I'm learning a lot.The factory tj rubicon lockers can only take a maximum of like 6 psi before they blow the internal bladder.
If your question is "can I regear an 8.8 and also add a locker", then the answer is yes.Let me see if I'm asking this correctly: can I upgrade an 8.8 rear axle with rings and lockers the same as I would any other TJ axle? That is to say, are the mounting points the only non-standard changes I'd have to make?
