how about you search a little and give a little more information. you want Dana 44s to run what size tire? why not do a Tera low kit in your tcase, I'm assuming you have a Dana 20 case. you could find a ford t18 or np435, or do a chevy sm465 trans. those options are pretty common, if you want to do it right then find a d300 and do 4:1 gears in it and mate it your trans.

Start with tire size and then figure out what you'll need for gearing. For simplicity purposes, www.novak-adapt.com has alot of useful information, including gear ratios and what you'll need to do to make it work. I use the sm465/dana 20 twin sticked with 4.56 r&p and 36's and the gear reduction is decent.
