TJ needs help from FSJs

I am trying to swap a later 80's (86 maybe)Grand Wagoneer front D44 into my TJ. The wrecking yard has some @ $250 complete. One problem is they have 10 bolt and 12 bolt diff covers listed. What's the diff[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. Gear size doesn't matter because I'll put a locker in. I'll also want manual hubs. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You'd be better off getting a D44 from a late 70's Wagoneer or Cherokee. ALL the front axles are manual hubs! Also, most (if not all) of them are the exact same style.

What side is the drop on the 70's? Right or left. I need left for my t-case.

Re: TJ needs help from FSJs

the 10 or 12 bolt question is just the chevy ( common parts) field in their computer.

a 70s model wont work for you since you need the diff on teh drivers side.

just be careful not to get one with teh vacum disconnect on it, lik e84-86 had this, its on the diff cover, not on the tube like a YJ.

all fronts of that era from a FULLSIZE jeep are a Dana 44.

maybe the 10 or 12 bolt is diff in a xj front axle or an SJ front axle?
IM too tired to go outside and count.

look under eth tech files and figure out what a dana 44 looks like, and go and get one.

if they have drive slugs ( alot do in those years) keep them for spares, as they are stronger than lockout hubs, then buy some hubs and slip them in., they slide right in the slugs place, no problems.

Re: TJ needs help from FSJs

Thanks for the help. When I asked the salvage yard about a front axle assembly they called it a front rear? I have a D44 in the rear... it's a 10 bolt. Maybe they were talking about the rear AMC20(12 bolt?). They weren't to helpful. Kept telling me "I need a specific vehicle to find a part". Also they didn't know what a Dana 44 was. My search continues.[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

You could use a late 78-79 ford Broncho or Full size reverse cut Dana 44, They are pretty common. The pig Is on the drivers side too. The only problem with using late 70's rear 44's from a wagoneer is that it has an offset centerline, for the driveshaft.
