If you want a prebuilt axle with those specs, i would just start calling companies that build them.

Re: In Search

dyna trac was OK priced when i looked a few months ago,

Quadratec sells axle assemblies

currie is a bit expensive i think

theres many others...someone else will prolyl post em....

it'd be cheaper to set up your own if you got the skills.....but TJ suspensions are a lot harder to set up than YJs or CJs....i honestly wouldnt mess with it either...if i had cash i'd buy from dynatrack

that set up will easily cost you 2600-3200 $$....so be warned

Re: In Search

sell your jeep and buy a rubicon.
it will be cheaper

I the exact axles you are describing in my TJ. It took me 2 years to build the front and plenty of $$$. I had the rear, but I put in superior shafts and machined the brakes to 5 on 5.5 pattern.

most knowledgeable folks... and I mean foks that actualy get out and wheel a LOT will tell you it's not worth upgrading a TJ to a d-44. either put chromoly shafts into the d-30, or build a d-60
