Dana 30 in the back of a Jeep????? Thats a new one on me....But a Dana44 was in TJ's that year an so it would be a direct swap if it's going into a TJ. If it's a XJ you can find 44s for those also, I think 87-89 had them on the tow packages. Lots of people do the 8.8 swap but you still have the C-clip, some people have luck with the super35 kit also.Sandman said:What axle upgrade options out there for a Dana 30 in the back of a '98 Jeep? Is there a Dana 44 that can be sourced or somthing?
Isn't the MJ a leaf under too ? My nephew found me a 44 out of a 89 XJ in Vegas and is gearing it to my rig. It will be a bolt in swap. They are out there just have to search the bone yards.IdahoEagle said:The rear axle in a Cherokee or YJ was a Dana 35 with the Cherokee having a Dana 44 as an option. The Commanche pickups had an interesting option yet again, they had a 1 ton version that used an AMC20 rear axle like the one in the Wagoneers, not like the POS that was used in the CJs. It only came with 4.10s in that truck.
