I posted this earlier in the YJ forum but I should have posted it in here (sorry, new memer)

I am looking to swap out my Dana 35c rear axel in my '91 wrangler. I have been looking at my options and have come up with a few axel choices. So far, I am looking for a Dana 44 from a '87-'90 Cherokee but am not having much luck finding one. Some other choices brought to my attention were a Ford 8.8" from a '95-'01 explorer or a D44 from a Camanche '87-'90. My mind is set on replacing my D35c with a D44. Does anyone know which of the above mentioned would be the easiest swap or recommend other options for a stronger rear end swap? What are the drawbacks for swaping in a Ford 8.8" rear end as opposed to a D44? Would a lot of modifying have to be done for that swap?

Any recommendations at all for this issue would be greatly appreciated.

The 8.8 should be much easier to find. Wink
