All the brackets are different. You might be able to use a couple but I think almost all of them have to be moved. Unless you designed a suspension around them. And the bolt pattern is different, and they are wider. And when all the hardcore guys get here, you are going to hear something about bacon and or it's Tuesday.

I dont care if its TUE, but i do love bacon.

If you cant even read the rules to know your posting in the wrong section, I doubt you could even swap "bolt on axles" ......

And why the fawk do you want to put a D30 in even if it was free.

THIS IS A QUESTION FOR NON-HARDCORE.

It can be done, but figure about another $250 in brackets per axle. I had a JK rera axle on a TJ, and kept front TJ with adapters to match the wheel pattern in the rear and width.

Both axles are stronger than TJ axles (30 and 44), so not a bad way to go if you are getting a good deal. the front JK axle housing is debatable as far as strength.

if you do not care about being a bit wider not an issue

Bolt patterns did change so you will need adapters or new rims as well.

no debate about it. The front JK30 is a POS in stock form

it's the same 2.5x.250 tube, just longer....the TJ's had a bad problem with them bending....the JK will be worse.

On the Jk's I saw two with actual cracs, not bends. I believe there are some pics posted around here on the front 44's, looks almost like cast..

I've never touched a JK44, don't know.
I guess it's posible they got some quality Chinese steel for a batch of tubes.
