Default What other outer knuckle assembly will fit the Dana 30 front axle?

What other outer knuckle assemblies, beside the WJ's will swap on to the 97' & up TJ/XJ HP Dana 30 front axle? I'm looking to get some kind of selectable hub design, and do away with the unit bearing. And YES.... I did search first. And NO.... I dont want to spend $1300 on the Warn conversion.
Thanks in advance, the drunken Pollock.

Wow, thats not to bad of an option either. Thanks for the link.

I wouldnt even bother with this, but have been unable to find a drivers drop Waggy axle, so this is what I have. And having the hybrid 30/44 built would outway the the price of a Waggy axle(if I could find one). I'm going to look into the knuckle you posted since I already have the HP 30, and at this point only have $100 into it. But I'm still open to some options before I pull the trigger and buy any pricey parts for it.

That is an interesting option - but my flat-top-knuckles-dummy question, how much lift do I need to be running before I can switch to OTK steering, or is there some other option that would work? In the long run it probably is not a cheaper option than the Mile Marker hub conversion kit, but being able to run standard 44 outer parts and a stronger outer knuckle vs D30 is interesting. Especially for someone like me that would rather eliminate the "convenience" of the unit bearings in favor of lockouts, but doesn't need anything beefier than a D30, and is too cheap to pony up for a custom built 44.
