the truck has a solid body and frame a good transmission but thats it

motor is tired
ifs 4wd not working
and it has car tires


the plan is this

already ordered a new motor 350 5.7

already secured a rear end with locker and disks

looking for a drivers drop solid front axle d 60 or 44 not to picky


the plan is to have her sased and double locked asap and am looking to run 35-38'' tires prolly mtr/bf/toyo...maybe even ltbs





if anyone has parts or experence in this kinda build please share your thoughts

before i bought my jeep all i could do was oil changes but i have leared alot since then especially listining rather than taking the cheap way out
so please share your advice












failed allready when u have 3 k into the 400$ dana 44 you will know why ... think about what u spent to build the one in your jeep for fucks sake


just sayin

with 35s and chromos and et etc the d44 might last a while.
I still have one here that I need to inspect what died.
detroit survived 6 shaft breakages, then I put Yukon shafts in.
warn hub breakage busted something in the detroit.

in the long run it is always cheaper to start with a d60f IMO,
unless you are a great salesmen and are able to rip someone off buying your old stuff.
oh wait,
hey I have a ford d44 bronco housing, with flat top f250 outers, for sale, slightly used, Yukon shafts, 3.73s are perfect for 35s, detroit locked for only $1500
also have tons of new parts for same on the bench, spindles/bearings/brake brackets/u joints/seals/warn premiums

a slight build on a dana 44 for that would be enough its only half ton truck not 3/4 or 1 ton and unless u plan on doing trails like fucked lower or upper then it will br plenty plus the width is nice for that unit and u can still run 16 or 15" rims with a 35" without issues and then u also keep 6 bolt and that rear end in truck is half ton already so less money plently of stregth for family rig u can also look into Sky desighns for a sas kit but imo a 44 in front o that would be just fine the front ifs diff in that is pretty much as strong as a dana 30 an it handles 35" tires with an ifs lift dont need to over build something that your not rocking hardcore trails with just reliable and strong and if u want a 60 up front u mayaswell go 14b in rear lock em both no need to build them for that rig and then work on some nice tube flares for width and sliders n bumpers to accom but being a family rig muiltimount winch with hitch front n rear is great so u dont got to build bumpers slap some leds on front for lights and some sliders with imo 2" hitch holes for multimount for side pulls if needed and a locker in rear that thing with go everywhere and cheap reliable and fun i think what i siad about would e plenty your jeep was overbuilt for the use it seen sure was pretty but a budget family built moderate wheeler u dont need more then what isaid above and as for body damage well those round bodys get poked with a stick and they ding so bash in the trees and a roof rackfor storage is nice too cheers!

Not shure were ray is getting his info but should maybe do some research
Before yapping a Dana 60 and 44 are the same width
As for the strength 35 s on a 44 it's on the edge of boom
And my ford needed ball joints replaced yearly on a skinny 36
Not to mention randomly blowing out axles
short box pu not a overgrown station wagon

did you get a deal on H2 rear or already have one? semi float junk with no aftermarket support.
a late 90s e250 is a disc brake equiped d60 with large spindle that can fit 35spline axles.

the best deal going right now is 2005+ ford axles front and rear. they use the largest steering ujoint 1550 and right now no one seems to know about them. only thing is the ugly cast in mounts.
keep your eyes peeled for a set of those and you would be state of the art
