Just more a opinion place.
Joined the local jeep forum and noticed Rafe was already there.

But I was offered a set of TJ axles with 3.73's. Dana 44 in the rear.. Dana 30 in the front..
Any thoughts if this is a valid option or too much overkill?

The front would only be to yank the internals out and slide in the IFS.

Front "should" work, but the rear was a swapped in D44?

I think Rafe is on every forum in the world. :stir:
How much? Some TJ's were available with a D44 rear. I believe the Sahara and Sport. It will be for coil springs so the coil mounts will need to be cut off and leaf spring mounts welded on. The front is useless for the internals. It uses a short pinion gear where as the Eagle uses a long pinion. But you could use it for a SAS.

So really a no go.. Not wanting to do a SAS right now. and although they seem nice over there they are not familiar with the Eagles. So I see what I can and check here for confirmation.

Well so far I like what I got out of the KC Jeep Club

Got contacted already about 8.25's from a 95-99 Cherokee with 3.55's for $150.
Sounds like a better match.

If it has a factory LSD even better.

Whole rear axle bolts in with new (bigger) Ubolts and spring plates from the XJ then you make shock mounts to fit. and fiddle with ebarke cables. I'm going to try the ebrake cables from an Eagle axle in it.
