Re: axle swap-

For a YJ, I'd go with an 8.8" rear from a Ford Explorer or Ranger. They're equally as strong, can be had with factory rear disc brakes, same width, and you keep the 5 x 4.5 lug pattern that your front axle has (Dana 44 has either 5 x 5.5 or 6 x 5.5). Do a search. There's a lot of people on this board that have done the swap, and it's pretty straight forward. Good luck. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
