XJ Dana 44 Buildup

See someone find an XJ D44, strip, clean, and paint it, add 4.56 Spicer gears, Detroit Locker, ZJ disc brakes, a custom truss, and slap it in.


Dana 44 From a XJ Prep, Buildup and Install

This write up will cover the preparation of a Dana 44 out of an 87 XJ. The second and third parts will describe the modifications and the subsequent installation of that axle into a 97 XJ. The axle received new alloy shafts and a disc brake conversion. It was not regeared nor locked (both will come at later dates). There’s a lot that has been “glossed over” in this write up.
