Swapping an Early Bronco Dana 44 into a YJ Off-Road.com

There are many advantages to swapping an early Bronco Dana 44 into the front of a Wrangler YJ. The Dana 44 has larger u-joints, bigger ring and pinion, larger axle shafts (30 spline), beefy internal hubs, 5 on 5.5″ wheel bolt pattern, and good pinion placement. The Dana 44 also has more ring and pinion options than the reverse cut Dana 30 in the YJ. Lockers are generally cheaper for the Dana 44 since it is such a common axle.
