dsanders:

To your question on why they just don't offer D44 on all Tjs, It has very little to do with cost, but more to do with gas mileage. The manufacturers are required to meet a fuel economy standard. One of the best ways of doing that is to build the lightest vehicle possible. By going to lighter running gear, you save weight and friction losses.
