Hey .
I've got this problem - Dana 44 installed on a GM Van ( Pathfinder ) as a front axle , has 8 lug pattern .
Now, i'd like to put it instead of my YJ's Dana 30 , as you all know the Dana 30 has
5 lug X 4.5" pattern .
I don't want to take the outer knuckles of the YJ - what's the gain ??? - i want to have lockers and stronger axleshaft all the way .
What can i do ? i'm trying to find information and pics but nothing

Thanks in advance

Looks like you need a new set of wheels its cheaper to go 8 lug also your gonna need a matching rear axler, how about a 14 bolt its 8 lug,its gonna be nearly imposible to keep the stock 5 on 41/2 but Im not saying it cant be done but I wouldnt do it.. <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

Just go 8 lug wheels.. thats really your only choice.. your next issue.. GM vehicles have passenger side drop on the pumpkin, so unless you have changed the t case on your yj to something with a passenger side output, you are going to have an awful hard time sticking that in your yj...

One thing to consider is that the chevy axle is waaaaay wider than your D30. Also, the pumpkin is on the wrong side. You'd be better off getting a 1980 or newer Wagoneer front axle. It's the right width and you can put 76-79 Ford 1/2 ton rotors on it for a 5 on 5 1/2 bolt pattern. By the way, the rear is also the right width.
