Ford 9\" or Dana 44 fr my CJ7?......
I am going to get "new" axles for my 82 widetrack CJ7. I've got 33's but MAY in the future go to 35's, no bigger.
I run 50% street, 40% sand dunes, and 10% heavy duty trails, and rockcrawling (when I get out west every few years). I will get F+R ARB in whatever I get with 4.10 gears.
Which should I choose? Rear will be high pinion, front standard. I will use current front outers including knuckle and warn hub upgrade.
Currie says 9" better, Dynatrac says D44 is better. What are pros and cons of each? Any reason for me NOT to use my current outers (in very good condition).
I am leaning toward 9" because of drp out 3rd member, extra pinion bearing, and little stronger overall.
