i doubt they are the same right? my 30 is still together so i will find out eventually but just curious for the moment :)

i imagine the 4 will be larger........will there be an adapter from the 30 fitting to the 44?

More info... what D30 and what D44...

XJ D30 and wagoneer D44 lines are different at the caliper end... I forget the difference in the banjo fitting itself, but the bolt was either too big or too small. The waggy lines bolted up to the XJ hardlines however, so all I had to do was find some longer brakelines for a wagoneer application... I ended up with '73 Chevy 4x4 front soft lines. Plenty for my 5.5" lift w/Clayton longarms.

this is the D30 on a YJ and a HP44 out of a 78 ford 3/4.
i have some nice braided lines on the jeep and really want to keep them, extended and all. i have an old broken line in the garage i just remembered about.......will see if the end matches the 44 caliper.

just wondering if it don't fit.........is there a way to adapt it :)

I swapped a HP44 into my YJ and had the aftermarket stainless lines. The brake lines bolted right on to the waggy calipers I was using.

ditto, except I used dual piston calipers from a 78 3/4 ton ford...

The XJ brakeline has a 10mm banjo bolt (interchanges with 3/8" banjo's)

A waggy and early CJ disc have a 7/16" banjo bolt. Later models have 3/8" bolts. I have no idea what size ford calipers are, and GM can be 3/8 or 7/16. If you have a hose with a block square banjo, go ahead and drill it out (be careful and blow out the chips) If you have a small round banjo you should be able to drill it depending on brand.

I have braided lines on my HP44 (78 ford) stock ford calipers, had to drill out the hole when I installed GM D44 calipers, prior to doing that the hp44 from the ford had the same size bolts as my 84 CJ5 D30.
