I was wondering which jeep models had the front axle with the housing on the driver's side? Wagoneer? Cherokee? J-10? I'm looking to find a dana44 to replace what I have. Is one model's axle the best over the others?

I know the 80 and up grand wagoneers have the hog on the drivers side because thats what I have in my 87, but 5" shorter. Steve

Some of the j-10's have them pass, some have them driver. Its weird because I looked at two same year j-10's for my front axle for a Cj, and one had driver, the other had pass. I believe the difference is quadratrac, I don't think they ever made a driver drop quadratrac, so they just reversed everything on those trucks... I was dissapointed when I looked at the first j10 and saw a driver side drop, and then I stumbled onto this one... <shrug> I dunno

Is the Wrangler or the Wagoneer axle 5 inches shorter? I am interested on doing this swap as well. Also- what would the gearing be in a GWagon with a 360 and a LS in the rear?

I am in the middle of swapping the axles from an 87 Grand Wagoneer into my YJ. Dana 44 front and rear, 6 bolt wheels, internal hubs, bigger tie rod on the top of the knuckles, 1/2 ton outers. The axles are about 1-2 inches wider than YJ axles. Have to cut off the spring perches and move them in, and fab new shock mounts. The driver's side front perch will require welding the spring bolt hold up and redrilling it after cutting another .5 - 1 inch of material out of the housing.
