I finally decided to use the Dana 44 and Ford 9" that I bought at the beginning of the summer. So, since the end of August my XJ has been on jackstands in my garage because I sold my tires and axles. Here is a little bit of a run down on the new build. The 9" is going to have 5.13 gears with a mini-spool and disc brakes. The 44 is getting the TNT truss kit along with 5.13 gears, while I still decide what I am going to do with the front end. I am also designing new long arms and cross member. Then it is going to get a new set of 37" tires. As of right now I am leaning towards some Iroks. I also am going to be getting some 17" beadlock wheels, but that might come later down the road.

Alright, since some people can't leave me alone about this...here are some pics. Pretty much got the spring perches and shock mounts welded on the 9" and painted it all up. Tomorrow I will be getting it bolted in and probably finish setting up the brakes. Also, will probably continue to rip the 44 apart so after I get the truss it is ready to go in.

9" is in and now tearing apart the 44. Should be fun.

As RDK_YJ88 said they are custom built. A few people shown interest in them and I will eventually be selling just the arms, so when I put them up, they are open to anyone interested.
