Default D 44 front

ANy thoughts on a d44 front out of a 78 power wagon??

good axle?
upgrades?
the one I have is a full time unit. Im not a dodge guy but I think this is the correct side drop for an install in my 72 jimmy. Just wondering if its anygood (I have the whole truck) to put in place of the weak 1/2 ton stuff I have. So hit me with it dodge people.

if its a full time 4x4, it has the unit bearing set up like on the 2nd dodges. none serviceable bearins. they are pricy like 50 bucks the last time i bought one for a old dodge. you can change the knuckles to the later mid 80s and get the lock outs. why are you wanting to go to a 44 in your jimmy? have a 10 bolt now?

Yeah corprate front and 12bolt rear. Figured the 44/60 out of the 3/4ton would be a bit beefier.
