hello i was wondering if anyone has a jeep xj dana 44 for sale i am willing to pay good money for one
yeah i have looked absolutely everywhere for one and can’t find one to save my life like i was even interested in buying the whole xj just for the axleGood luck finding one. They are getting pretty rare. You might have better luck finding a TJ or YJ D44 and welding the right spring perches on it. Also the Scout II D44 is very close to the same width
i am on dallas texas i am using a vpn witch is why it says i am in brazil but i have a 99 cherokee limited with abs and i would like to keep the abs if possible and i guess a open differential since i would be putting a locker in itWell that opens things way up. What year and model Jeep are you looking to put an axle in? What gear ratio and differential (open, limited slip, or locked) are you wanting, and where are you located? That should help us help you.
i was reading that there isn’t a lot of aftermarket support like lockers etc for the 8.25A Chrysler 8.25 29 spline would be perfect for you and probably what your jeep had from the factory if it didn't have a Dana 35. The 8.25 is pretty much the same strength as a D44 anyhow.
it doesn’t have to have abs but i would like to over build it like overkill with this xj i would also prefer disk brakesSorry, I'm not sure where you read that, but I believe your source(s) are wrong. I have a Spartan in mine right now, and they make Lokka, LockRite, Aussie and other lockers for them. Plenty of companies have gears and Yukon Gear and Axle sells rebuild kits. I worked at a company that is the largest retailer of Randy's Ring and Pinion products in the nation and was pretty intimate with the number of products that fit the Chrysler 8.25 at one point in time.
(I should clarify that Randy's Ring and Pinion owns Yukon Gear and Spartan lockers.).
The only thing I am not 100% sure on is the ABS on those axles. I don't have it on mine. I know D35s had abs, and I think some Chry8.25 did. Other members like 4.3l can probably clarify on that.
