Re: Dana 30
only the rubicon comes with a front dana44.
dana 30s on TJs have a larger U (297) joint then on the YJs(260). 1995 yjs had the 297 ujoint. The 297 is the same U joint used on dana44s.
the ring gear is still small. but the early YJs have a reverse rotation gear set, so they are stronger gear.
a reverse rotation dana 30 with 297 u joint is OK,at best. If you got to JeepsUnlimited or pirate 4x4, you can find posts about guys using reverse rotation dana 30s out of XJs on there tjs.
[img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] there is a lot more to it though. but thats why guys will pay big bucks to swap out a dana 30.
