If you are actually going to go through with this it would be nice to know what you plan on doing with it.

When do you plan on starting the build?

Don't think they made an EB hp44 I believe there all LP but u can cut down a 78-79 full sized to be the same width. Also I think 5.16s for daily use with only 37s will be to much, 4.56 would be more practical IMO. Do they even make 5.16s for the 9s/44 I thought 5.13 was the lowest u could go but I'm not sure on that.

I would recomend going full width Dana 60.... At a minimum 64" and
5.13's is the way to go....

Things get tight in the front of that truck.

Having a TJ with a waggy 44 and building a SAS 98 ranger with a 44, we both ended up adding 2" spacers and had to upgrade to cromos with 37's

He was running 5.13's with a 3.0L auto, and with a 5.0L auto.

If you are going to run 37s and coil overs which are very expensive I'd suggest doing a d60 front that way its done and you don't have to worry about breaking the 44 now or when you go bigger in the future. If you can stick to 35 or 36s now a 44 will work but your going to want chromos soon or atleast by the time you go to 37s. That's about your limit on that axle. Being as its your DD I'd run 4.56s or 4.88s at the lowest. You can go to 5.13 or 5.38s when she's just s trail rig

72 lp eb 44 4.88 gears and trutrac, disk breaks high steer arm on the right knuckel for crossover steering. The tie rod ends are good but the connector is bent complete axle down to the lugnuts.
Rear 72 "big bearing" 9" 4.88 gears with a spool and disk breaks complete to the lugnuts.
Looking for $1600 for both, they are assimbled and ready to run.
