Found: Holy grail of YJ builders

I went and got a used flywheel/flexplate combo for my TF-727 install today and they let me take a look around the yard. I found a '91 Comanche 4x4 with ::drumroll, please:: the Metric Tonne package...that means it had the D44 rear axle, skinny enough to fit under a Wrangler and 5x4.5" bolt pattern! This is the B&F junkyard in Palmetto, FL for anyone thats wants it. They quoted me $350 on it [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

Nice find!!! I'd take it if I hadn't already put a $150 deposit on my set of 44s.

Oh yeah- there was also a '97 Wrangler TJ in there with no drivetrain. The frame and suspension looked good though.

Also a wide-trck Cherokee with a V-8 and dual D44s

Its a damn shame I'm only looking for one-ton axles or I'd be saving up for these myself.
