Dana 44 has much more aftermarket available. With that, components are cheap as hell and you can get them everywhere, not limited to one shop. And its tough enough for what I wanna do!

Solid reasoning, and the perfect solution, sounds like.

$300 for the locker, $160 for the gears, $200 for the install kit, $150 for the axle, $140 for the heim joints and bushings, just waiting on the DS lengthening

Is that panhard drop going to get in the way? It just looks like it could snag on something while crawling and rip off, otherwise very good design and I am kinda jealous... My pathy is still on jack stands in the garage because I am currently fixing my boat...

Its about 8" shorter then the OEM one with the SFD drop bracket. I never hit that on anything. I'm gonna brace it up a bit before I hit the trail. But it won't hit anything.

The ride control is soooo much better now that I don't have the broken rear control arm bushings. The brakes, wow, unbelievable difference!

 

I'll post the video of the rear end working on a mild offroad run, when I get out of this God forsaken province hahaha
