Front Dodge Dana 44\'s?

Why does no one use Dodge truck front D44's in there Jeeps? Is the short side to long? Thanks:

Re: Front Dodge Dana 44\'s?

I am putting a Dodge 44 under the front of my CJ. I did have to cut both sides. The spring perch on the Dodge is sunk extra deep into the diff allowing a very straight driveline, it will actually be parallel to the frame. My 30 driveline isn't quite parallel. This is true of the earlier (pre 94) Dodge 44's, don't know about ther 94 and up, but they have a disconnect so I didn't even bother to look at them.
