JK D44 swap

Recommended Posts

I think I'm ready to swap the D44 axles under my xj, these are out of a 2016 Rubicon that my buddy has. He swapped over to Rock Jock 70's. Artec trusses are on and all that's left is swapping out the yokes, then I can get them under there and start working through all the steering and brake problems..

They look great with the truss work. The one and only thing that I hate about the front JK D44 is the tie rod is lower than the axle and gets hung up on rocks all the time.

Thanks, I'm off on a suburban overlander project. I'm ditching all the trailers and sleeping in the back of it... Were going to spend 2 weeks this summer in NV and CA.
