My local craigslist has this item listed, with pics...
"complete dana 44 rear axle out of a 72 international scout. complete drum to drum with 4.56 gear and limited slip"
(He also has a "Front dana 44" from the same vehicle)
First off, do I even want a Dana 44 rear diff that's 40 years old?
If so, will it fit my 98 TJ?
What other parts will I need? Is this even worth looking into?
Thanks!

The front is a passengers side drop...you'd need to do something about your driver's side drop transfer case also to make it work. Scout axles are good a lesson though.

Neither would fit without extensive work, fabrication, and welding.
This. First your probably gonna have to have it narrowed, then since TJ's are coil sprung and this is a leaf sprung D44 its not a bolt in kinda deal. Any fab shop could easily do it but it will be spendy. This reminds me of the kid that brought us in a 12 bolt for his 71 Chevelle. Wanted us to just put it in. It was out of a truck, leaf springs. Chevelle, coil springs. Research research research. Course by the looks of the kid that dropped off his chevelle he has most likely ripped a few killer bong hits. If ya catch my drift.
