Something decent and complete.

Cheaper the better.

$300, bought and never used. I will have to check for gearing. Complete but would have to have the brakes redone I am sure.

it would work, but it's spring under, so it would need perches welded on...

If this is something you plan to wheel and possibly break, you may not want to go for the 44, as they are a fairly rare option, and cheap parts are not readily available.

Another option is the ford 8.8 from a 95-02 explorer. It is stronger than the 44, has the same wheel pattern, and comes with rear discs. It too will need spring perches welded on, but everything else is basically a bolt in. I just helped paintballpyscho put his rear 8.8 in his Cherokee, and it looks like it was made to be there. Plus explorer parts will be much easier to find for years to come.

like stated above 8.8 is a good choise some have limited slips and come in 3.73 ratio and 4.10 explorers are spring under and rangers are spring over most explorers have rear disc as an option. rangers do not.

I've researched the 8.8 option.
I don't like that they're shorter than stock width.
Parts seem to be equal in price vs. 44 and more options for the 44.
I don't want to screw with welding mounts, but for cheap i'd consider an MJ axle...
I know they're rare on xj's, but people have them.

I've got one that I will be selling in a month or so, once I've finished building it's 8-lug replacement.

3.55 gears, welded diff, heavy chrome cover, newer brakes, wheel seals, heavy duty high clearence XJ shock mounts.

I was thinking I'd offer it up for $300 when I take it out, but the Jeep doesn't run, so I may be persuaded to pull it and sell it before I'm ready for a few more $$ or a bolt-in axle that I can roll it around on.

WRONG; the axle is rare but it shares the same internals as the tj 44, so shafts are easy to come by and 44 gears and lockers are everywhere. You can also do a disc brake swap using zj parts for fairly cheap.
