Dana 44 Question revisited...

Hi all

Thanks to the folks who answered my other question...

Sounds like the DJ5 dana would need a lot of mod to work on my CJ,

But.... Can I take the guts out of the pumkin and install them in my rear end?


Thanks again!!

Re: Dana 44 Question revisited...

Sure, but they are only 3.07 gears and a Trash-Lock. Almost every other Jeep with this axle had better gears in it. Grand Wagoneers frequently used 3.31 gears...
