Default 05 Rubi Dana and coil spacers for trade or sale

I have a dana 44 for sale. Well not really. I want to trade it for a regular TJ 44.
So I HAVE to list a price so if you wanna buy it it is $2500

So now that that is out of the way, I have an 05 Rubi 44 with 4.10(I think) gears and the factory air locker. It is missing shafts and brakes. I was told it has less than 10K on it. I would like a regular TJ 44 preferably with 4.88's.

I also have a set of 4- Pro Comp 2" coil spacers. I am asking $500 for the set or just to simply trade someone with a set of 1" spacers.

Nothing if we are talking rear axels here, which we must be.

I don't believe the lockers in the Rubi's were air lockers either, they were electronic lockers.

TJ/LJ Rubicon Dana 44s have air lockers front & rear. IIRC, there is a small difference on the housing to allow for this (I had a set a while back). Also, some TJ Dana 44s had drum brakes. To the best of my knowledge, TJ Dana 44s weren't available from the factory with 4.88 gears. I have no idea what Dirty Turtle is trying to accomplish with this trade. Care to shed some light, DT?

TJ Rubi's = Air Lockers
JK Rubi's = E-Lockers

Rubi 44's are different. I believe they use the thicker R&P and different brakes and a different rebuild kit. This is an excellent axle for someone who wants to build it up. I can't afford to build it and build it right. Good shafts and a rebuild kit is all it needs. Well, brakes too. If I were to build it, I would need shafts, brakes, 4.88's and rebuild kit. That is a lot of $$. Id rather just find a 44, maybe with an open diff or crappy locker, with 4.88's that I can bolt in and be done. I figure someone out there maybe had put 4.88's in a TJ dana 44. I know they didn't come with them.

More or less...here is my situation. I have a dana 35 with Yukon 4.88's and TracLoc with about 3000 miles on it since rebuild. I wanted to sell that and build the 44 that I have, but I can't pull mine out until I have another axle to put under it. To rebuild the 44, I need everything above, PLUS I need to regear. So now Im talking $1000. I don't have $1000. But someone who already has 4.10 gearing in the front, just throw in the bearings and shafts....now you talking $400 and you have a sweet axle.

It's just a try. Maybe someone had one sitting around.

You should check this in the Tech section. I believe at least the R&P and brakes statements are inaccurate. It may make a difference as to what you choose to do (build vs. trade). Good luck.

Actually the TJ Rubi 44 does have a different part number for gears.

They are different because they use a 3:73 and down locker and use the thick gears from the factory.

Didn't rubis have disc brakes while 44's had drums? I thought the brakes were different. A lot of the part numbers are different.
