\'86 Dana 44

Anyone have (or had) a stock '86 CJ with the Dana 44 rear. I was wondering what the gear ratio probably is
I have the 999 auto tranny & 258 engine. The tag is missing. Just wondering if anyone had this configuration, what
may be typical to this.

Re: \'86 Dana 44

I have one! number 64,259 They came with 3:31 or 2:73 I think. Mine was 3:31 now going to be 4:56. I have the spec list on my web site if it helps. just look under drivetrain specs 72-99 jeeps.

Me too. Towing package with 3.31's
There's a letter code stamped on the rear housing just to the passenger side of the diff cover. That'll tell you what was in there from the factory. If the chart is gone from ORC, then it should be at the jeeptech website.

Re: \'86 Dana 44

I've got the 2.73 which is, of course the mpg gears, (I get an average of 15.8). I was wondering, what kind of mpg do you get with the 3.31's, or don't you keep track?

Re: \'86 Dana 44

Gas mileage...Jeep? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I don't keep track, plus it pretty much only sees 'city' driving for the 10 mile drive to work and it's got 32x11.5 BFG MT's on it and a somewhat tired 4.2 under the hood saddled with that marvel of modern engineering, the Carter BBD carb. Not exactly a recipe for fuel efficiency [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Plus its' got the aerodynamics of a brick and enough air leaks and rust holes to bring the outdoors inside. I think Easter weekend will be spent removing rust and adding diamond plating so that this puppy survives until I restore it with a new tub next year. Funny thing is the front clip almost looks showroom fresh...
My '83 with a halfway decent 4.2, Weber 32/36, Blackjack headers, Jacobs ignition, Duraspark cap & rotor, the same running gear and gear ratio with 31" AT's was good for about 17 mpg on a good run.

Re: \'86 Dana 44

Jeepskate, Did you say Blackjack hedders? I knew a guy who had some of those back in the day, the only hedder he could find for the 258 at the time. Did you buy it recently? If so where from? I would love to get one, I remember it being a good resonable priced hedder.

Jeepskate:

I may be wrong, but the M20 had the letter codes, not the D44's, they had the tag. You may have to jack it up and check the rotation to figure it out.

Re: \'86 Dana 44

If anyone wants the 3:31 gears, I've got a complete set of them front and rear for Dana 44 axles. The rear is also factory posi. $100 for the front gears and carrier and $150 for the rear gears and posi, s&h.
