The same goes for TJ into either of the XJ or ZJ. Obviously XJ are leaf and ZJ are different arm positions to a TJ.

He suggested the axle retainers to suit the brake swap. Once finished you couldn't tell the difference except for the locker airline.
Hi Roady, I have a Eaton e locker in the front Dana 30, which has done all the work (Cape York and back plus around Lithgow area). I would like a locker in the back and decided against an ABR air locker in the Dana 44a, as I said this JK Dana 44 has a Eaton True Trac in it which is basically off all the time until needed which should help the front diff locker.

I have been in contact and discussing it with David at Wooders too over the last 3 months, yes David he is very helpful. It is booked in with Wooders to have the brackets changed over on the diffs in a couple of weeks. Still trying to workout what rubber I need and gears, have both JK 16 and 17 " rims, and want to get to at least 32.X" but not go wild on width maybe 255 or 265 it is currently 245. What gears I end up is another question still being worked on.

Thanks Roady and Hoobz for you input it is very much appreciated.

Thanks again all and I will look at the thread build titled ' Very Evolved ZJ Grand'.

TJ, XJ and ZJ swaps simple and WG and JK swap would not be simple possibly different build periods? Nice to know Thanks Kiwi Jeeper.

Best Regards

Hijack alert...

I keep getting told there is no locker for my WG rear, yet you mentioned an ARB locker for the 44HD. I assume that you mean the aluminium housing one?

Is my problem the 3.55 ratio of the CRD or is it misinformation?

I believe ARB do an air locker for the D44A, give them a call.

I think part of the problem is the CRD ratio, but I'm not 100% sure on this one.

Yes my research found the an Dana 44 aluminium has 1 option for an after market locker and that is the ABR air locker.
My first choose was to have Eaton True Trac which needs a JK Dana 44 made from steel.

I did. I got some dumb receptionist who read to me from their web site and would not pass me on to anybody else who could actually confirm that their RD226 would fit the 3.55 ratio.
