dana 44

what other way is there to get a stronger axel then the whimp 35, other then buying the rear end out of a TJ?
would a dana 35 break that fast with 35 inch tires?
anyone have a 44 sitting around the back?

Re: dana 44

the dana 35 isn't up to 35's if you plan on wheeling it. being that you jeep is a tj the easiest swap is going to be a tj dana44. a ford 8.8 will work too but make sure it is from a 96 or newer explorer with disc brakes. these years had 31 splined axle shafts where as the earlier ones were the weaker 28 (i think 28) spline shafts. i can't remember where but i have seen a kit that has all the brackets you need to weld onto a rear end to make it fit in a tj. any other readers know of this kit? you would need this kit. you also could find another rear dana 44 from an older vehicle with the aproximate width or your 35 and add this kit to it and stuff it under your tj. i hope this will help.

Re: dana 44

the kit is from rubicon express, and JUST for the rear it's $300....yes.. 300 dollars for a couple brackets you have to get welded on

Re: dana 44

hey elusive, you have a tj. look at it and see if the brackets on the rear look like they could be cut off cleanly and welded back onto another housing. this would be a heack of alot better that $300. unless you can find a taker for the 35 as is.

Re: dana 44

it's said that they are the weekest thing out there. and i just want to know how big of a hole it will put in my wallet when it brakes.

Where do you want to go four wheeling today?

Re: dana 44

i like to look at it like how much more money can i get from this now while it is still good than to wait till it breaks. if you know that the 35 isn't going to work for your application sell it and put the money towards the rear of your choice.
