Both Front and Rear...... okay here's my ignorance.... are there different types of D44's that fit different types of vehicles...... I assumed that a D44 was a D44.... If it came on a F250 and a Explorer....I thought they could be interchangable....... But I was only thinking!

1999 TJ.......

Some TJ's have a rear 44, ZJ's Grand Cherokees have rear 44's not sure if all of them do or not?

Those would be the easiest for the rear swap. The Rubicons have 44's but there not "true" 44's they are a hi-bred 30/44 35/44

A late model wagoneer is probably the best donor vehicle but you will need to weld all of your parts on to it to make it work. Coil buckets,shock mounts, sway bar mounts, track bar.....

Personally I'd do a isuzu rear (6 lug disc brakes) and a Wagoneer front (6 lug disc brakes) the wagoneers are available in driver or passenger drop. You can get a 4.30somthing gear ratio which would be perfect for 33's.

That'd be too much work to actually open the thread thats sitting right in front of your face with the answers. Thats almost as had as google. I can't never figure out how google works.

ZJs with V8s got Dana 44, usually with an aluminum center section and c-clip axles. Called a Dana 44a. There have been issues with case flex causing failures. Locker selection sucks for these.

WJs also got them, I believe.

Rubicons are still dana 44s. Any talk about what axkeshafts and tubes they got not making thme 'true' dana 44s is internet forum silliness. They are dana 44s. Its the differential which makes the axle what it is.

As you can see, Dana 44 is a pretty broad term, which encompases many different axleshaft types, sizes, spline counts, ring and pinion types, tube strengths, lengths, etc.

I know why people call the front's "hybrid 30/44's" due to the D30 outer hardware, but where'd you get the "35/44" from?

I have heard that they use the 35 tubes which are thinner than say a scout/waggy/etc 44.
