Anyone know what\'s under a waggie?

I'm looking to swap in a rear D44 out of a Waggie. Does anyone know if the later (late 80s-early 90s) Waggies had D30s in the front? The onyl reason I ask is because I'd like to find the cheapest solution to have mathing bolt patter (6-Lug) and I figured if they came with D30s in front I could just swap the hubs. Is this even possible?

Thanks,
Jay

Anything 74 to 91 will be a front 44, open knuckle, 6 lug with disc brakes.

The rears will be 44's from 74-79 and then 86-91 in wagoneers and 80-85 model 20s.

Re: Anyone know what\'s under a waggie?

thanks a lot. I think I'm just going to go with a D44 out of an XJ, cause I've got a line on one for short money, and I won't have to bother with my front axle at all. I'm not too worried about the front for the mild wheeling I do, and I'm only going to be running 33s. From my experience with the D30, it holds it's own unless you're hitting sa lot more hardcore stuff than I even have access to. The D35 has always been the weak link. I swapped in a D44 in my last MJ when I started running 33s. I also got an "Off-Road Adventures" Magazine that 4WP puts out and they have an article on all the axles ever put in Jeeps, and they reiterated my feelings.

If you don't find an XJ dana 44, look into the ford 8.8" also.
