D44?

I just picked up a set from a TJ rubi , these will just bolt right on to mine. right?? mine is just a sport. The 44s have air locker in the back and the front is mechanical. that shouldn't matter right???

I think the rear u-joint is a 1330 instead of 1310.

Ive never heard of them running out of factory lockers and putting ARBs in. Double check the ujoint yoke size to make sure its the same size are your current driveshaft ujoint. Even if it isnt the same size thats no biggie and shouldnt stop you from swapping over.

alirght thanks, and is it it hard to remove the air line to it and the things that go with it. we are on a tight schedule and have like eight hours to do it in. just tryin to find out all the kinks that we might run in to to slow us down on this swap. We are doin front and rear swaps.

If both are stock they are both air lockers, not mechanical. I have also never heard of them using ARB from the factory. I think he just tried to sell it with that lie. Do yourself a favor and get the pump if you can, they run alot lower pressure than an ARB.

Shouldnt be too difficult. Honestly Id suggest searching with Google keywords jeepforum and rubicon axles or locker pumps etc. I found a link that maybe helpful to you.

The only problem you may run into is the rear u-joint not matching, (you can buy a 1330-1310 conversion joint if needed) everything else is the same. Provided all the bolts are in decent shape 8 hrs is plenty of time to do the swap. Worry about the air lines for the lockers and the small stuff after you have the Jeep up and running. IMHO

Could need driveshaft mods. 44 pinions are longer than 30's or 35's.

Thats what I was thinking, get it all mounted an able to drive away. then do the lines and other stuff. and he is giving me the pump. so thats a good thing. This guy is parting it out because the bank is buying it back taking the loss on it because they are going out of business. So what if i took his drive shafts also lol Im just gunna take his entire drive line. idk what t case he has. His is auto and mines the 5 speed. would i be able to take his case too lol

If you can get the T-case and related bits, axles, shafts and locker pumps you will be all set. Lots of work to swap out 2 of everything, way more than 8 hours unless you work at a chop shop....lol

Go for it! T-case bolt pattern is the same on both, so no problems with fitment, and you can use the Rubi rear driveshaft with no mods.......May as well swap out the front DS while your in there!

The Rubicon T-case has a 4-1 low vs your 2.73-1......Good for crawling



Good luck!
