Default Found a rearend

I found a 93 isuzu rodeo in the junkyard with dana 44 posi and 4.33 gears

did some research and found that most common stock was 4.33 and 4.56 gears also came with 3.93 and 4.10


also stock with
spring under
posi
disc brakes
and the u joint is the same size as the 6 cyl driveshaft
the only downside is that they are 6 lug 5 1/2"


can pick up the rear end from the junkyard for $115
and wheel adapters for $129 Here
soo a total of about $250 to do the swap

the only thing i am not shure on is the spring width

also i found that the driveshaft on that truck has the slip yoke in the shaft not on the t-case (if i am saying that right)
soo i could pick that up and have it shortned and and buy the tcase conversion that would be a whole lot cheaper than buying new



does anyone have any thoughts

by the way it would be going into a 93 yj 4 cyl with 35"s

put a sye on the t case with and get the right yoke to match the rear... then you can run the the driveshaft that came with the axle and have that shaft shortend

Go find a 1980-up non-disconnect Grand Wagoneer 6-lug front D44 and ditch the D30.

I agree with ditching the 30 in favor of the waggy front but beware that it's not an inexpensive swap.

I have the same axle in my '10a. It's 58" WMS-to-WMS. I think it'll be too wide for your YJ once you get the spacers on it. If you wanted to run this setup, I'd run Spidertrax spacers, which are only 1.25" each.

4.10s, 4.56s or 4.88s. BTW, you'll have to move the spring perches on the axle. They're wider than your YJ setup, IIRC.

You could also send the shafts out and have them re drilled for your pattern.

since you're local... here is another option

call Scrapbuster in Wayne

They had a bunch of new ford 8.8 axles, 4.10 gears, disc brakes, for $195


can't remember if they were LSD or open diffs though.

Then you'll need axle yoke, spring mounts and calipers, since the axles dont have calipers.

well the reason i am looking into the isuzu rear end is because it already has the 4.56 gears and right now i have 4.10s and and thats not enough
soo i figure

Option 1
i buy the 8.8 for $200 then gears for $150 then the install kit for about $75
soo about $425

Option 2
i am thinking go with the isuzu rear end that comes with 4.56 gears for $120 and then get the rodars and shafts redrilled for about $100
soo about $220

both with calipers and rodars to get me by for now

BTW, to clarify for people finding this thread down the road, 4.30 (not 4.33) gearing was the most common. 4.10s were used on 6-cyl. vehicles with "basic" 15" wheels, while the 4.30s were used in 6-cyl. vehicles with 16" aluminum wheels. I can only assume the 4.56s were used for 4-cylinders.
