For the same $800 that you would spend on manual hub conversion you can buy a Dana 44 and weld you dana 30 brackets to it and pop on some manual hubs (if it didnt come with them) and be set..

Hubs for Dana 44 are about $70 and they can be found in some of the same gear ratios as ZJ.. I picked up a Cherokee 44 for $100 and it had 3:73's on it.. Then I spent another $200 on axle tube seals and hubs and picked up some gears on Ebay and Viola I was done for about $500 ... Not a bad deal..

Of course I welded my own , If you cant weld you can surely find a buddy that can weld it up for you..

Good luck with whatever you decide..

i guess your right.. instead of paying any money into my turdy i should just go for a 44. they are 212 $ here, not as sweet as 100 but not too bad either.

since i have 3.73's then i wouldnt need gears right? i could weld them stock gears in the 44 right? or are 3.73's pretty poopey with 33's?
