good call. I did it the way I did to get the HD chain

Well you can swap the 231j yoke on to a 231c hd output and have the best of both worlds. However you may end up like me and have 3 different partial t cases laying around and one bastardized case in the truck

I've seen flat top d 44s not so much servive but exist under cummins swapped rigs I know itll hold the weight I could get a cheap d 60 but I don't see why, I'd need its gunna be a conservative build 33's at max I'll join the site when I go to start the build

I Know i'm going to catch hell for this but i ran a D30 high pinion on my zr2 in this thread i built. http://www.greatlakes4x4.com/showthr...CK48461&page=3 i did do the yoke swap the Wadey recomended worked out beautiful. I drove mine for show boating around town though and mild wheeling. The guy that currently has the truck since I sold it put a mildly built 5.3l in it new custom front driveshaft and harden front shafts and he goes to the dunes alot. (not mud) Mild trail riding and hasnt broke anything. But between buying the axle used all new brakes. Using my stock hub bearings on that axle and having spacers made outta 1/4" plate to keep my offset right for the brakes and redrilling the lug pattern in the xj rotors i had less than $600 in it. Thats counting a used set of 3.73 gears to match my rear. I did leave it open up front though.

Just check out the build and pics for ideas you may be able to coil spring pretty reasonable. Idk how heavy yours will be or anything or what your plans are just showing you an option. But if you plan to wheel hard the old saying will always hold true go big or go home. Just throwing this out incase your just going for something different to tool around with as a DD

I will second that Sam , And I don't think there is any straight panels left on it now !! And Wadey is right if your going to build a D44 just go with tons !! I would have actually saved money if I would have done that !!
