dana 44 value?

A coworker of mine found out I have a jeep and offered me a dana 44 rear axle.He says it's in great shape 4.10 gears but has no axles or brakes.Just the rear to the axle tubes.MY question is Whats it worth, I don't want to insult him or rip him off but he wants me to make him an offer. Also will my brakes from my corp. 20 fit it.He says it's 41" from axle tube to tube and supposedly out of a cj-5 though he doesn't know what year.any input would be appreciated. Thanks Gary

Re: dana 44 value?

Well I just got done cutting up a chevy 44 for placing into a YJ, and from edge of tube to edge of tube it about 48" (roughly) so 41" should be close on a cj width. Mines not in the yard or I would run and measure it.... As far as brakes, I am going to have to guess that there different. BUT, and this is the important part... I DON'T KNOW THAT FOR SURE!!!

As for value... well I had to pay 500 bucks for a couple of complete open 3.07 diffed scout 44 AND I had to get rid of the scout as well.. Down in America though, I have heard of scout 44 going for like 200 bucks a set. So I can't really tell you a price to offer. How about a 75 bucks??

Well since you said its out of a CJ-5 that means a few things.
1. It will be a narrow track axle, so it'll bolt right in to any CJ-5.
2. Since its from a CJ-5, that means its older than '76.

I'd check it out, make sure the gears are in good shape. Axle shafts and brakes can add up. If you're wanting a wider stance on your CJ then pass on this axle. As for price, I've got no friggen clue.....but because its so narrow almost nobody wants them.

Re: dana 44 value?

I changed the axles in my Commando to get rid of the AMC 20 the PO had installed. I reused the brakes on it. It is a Dana 44 from a '73 Commando and the brakes will fit. I had to cut a larger hole in the center because the bearing has to pass through the backing plate on the 44. On the 20, the backing plate retains the bearing and axle in the housing.
You will also have to redrill the mounting holes but there is plenty of room. If you need pics, I can get them but it will be a few days, I am out of town.
I will say that I can lock up all 4 tires with 35's and non power drum brakes. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
