Re: MJ D44 A direct bolt on for YJ\'s ?????????
I know its hard to believe, but I could be,.....errr, uhhh, hmmm, "wrong", wheew,.. that was hard to say.
But when I was 1st swapping the D44 in the front of my YJ, I didnt want to have to buy new beadlocks so I wanted to adapt or convert the front D44 down to 5 on 4 1/2. When I called moser they said they couldnt convert D44 rotors down to the smaller size because the outer hub would sit way to close to the bolt pattern, and that it wouldnt matter anyway because the 5 on 4 1/2" wheels could not fit over the the D44 hub in any case( My canyon Crawler beadlocks would not fit over my D44 hubs, either). They mentioned that was also the reason for having to go to the 5 on 5 1/2 bolt pattern if you wanted a Warn D30 hub conversion with the bigger 297 U joints. That kit uses a D44 size hub which wont allow the 5 on 4 1/2" wheels to fit over it either.
In any case if they are out there, cool!
And, thanks for the compliment on my YJ.
If at 1st you dont succeed, your replacement will try and try again
