I thought I would document my build thread here. I am a member over on WF and JF but was told this is a pretty active and technical place. I hope you dont mind seeing things twice.
I swapped my drums over from my D35 to lower the price on the axle as a whole, along with running the stock 44 shafts. He was building a new 44 with brackets clocked to accommodate a 241 tcase.What happened to the rear disc brakes on the Rubicon D44 axle? Did you swap them out for drums instead?
Good choice on the 33" Duratracs as well, that's what I've been running for years. I love them!
