Nothing directly available right now. Dynarape (Dynatrac) is currently starting to either design or produce a conversion kit. If it is priced anything liketheir D60 conversion, plan on spending $3000+ for the complete kit.

You can most likely fit the Warn 5x5.5 conversion from the Wrangler, but you'll need to get custom axle shafts and I have heard the tire limit is recommended to be only 32-33" due to how the hub is attached to the knuckle.

on my 86 I used the inner shaft from a 76 Dodge with the outer from my 86. it was a simple matter of removing the CAD actuator,bushings, and inner shaft . and installing the new axle shaft and making a cover to replace the actuator.

what year dodge. I have a feeling it is a 85-93 3/4 ton with the pass side drop, not the newer one.. because you refered to it as a d44.. am I correct?
