Hey everyone, looking for a rubicon model dana 44 from a TJ with the air locker still in it and in working order. Hopefully someone in California so you don't have to ship. :flowers:
Yes there junk for anything over a 33" since i put 35" on mine Iv bent the front twice save your moneyHonestly I would never buy Rubicon axles after owning them. An HP30 from an XJ has a stronger gearset, and all the outers are the same. In the rear just get a standard D44 on an 8.8. Throw in some ARBs, chromoly shafts and you are way better then a Rubicon 44.
IF you buy a Rubicon 44 you will end up throwing ARB's in it in a few years anyway which will cost you more money then the suggestion above. I've broken 2 Rubicon lockers already and I don't have a heavy foot.
Just my 2 cents trying to save a fellow Jeeper some money.
Eaton elocker and Arb air lockers are the best selectable lockers on the market in my opinion. The ARB lockers are supposed to be stronger and engage easier/quicker but require running air line and an air pump (added cost) .The Eaton locker just requires running the wires so its likely easier to install. Both are great lockers and both are run in high stress races like king of hammers. If I had the money I would go ARB and never look back, but for the cheaper price Eaton makes a great Locker.Are they good bad? Or should I just spend the extra money. And put the arb in
Just putting a locker in the rear
