ok i just got given 2 j200s 63and64 i believe and i was wondering what these axles are and what the gears in them are i was told all the earlyer jeeps had the dana 44s and 4.10s but i thought i would ask you guys and see what you come up with thanks
First off go to http://www.ifsja.org/tech/figures/db.html and dig around. Looks like those trucks had a closed-knuckle Dana 44 front axle and a wierdo Dana 53 rear axle. Hard to find. Dunno what ratio came in these early J-trucks. Sign up over at www.ifsja.org and ask away on their 'boards! They're a great group over there.
Did you crawl under it yet and see??? A friend just bought a '68 J3000 with D44 front with 4.27. Still had the tag on the diff. He has enough engine problems we haven't looked to see if he got lucky with the rear being D44 or not.
Rears were Dana 44 in 1/2T, Dana 60 in 3/4T and Dana 70 dually in 1T. Standard gear ratios were 3.90 with optional 4.27 & 4.88 in 1/2 & 3/4T models. 1T models came with 4.88 and had 5.89 as an option. Power-Lok limited slips were optional in all models (rear only)
