    Default What front axle does this most likely have?

    Hey everyone, so i found an AMAZING deal on CL today on a 00 wrangler sport. I do have a few questions though..

    In the add they say it has a d44 rear end, but nothing about what axle is in the front? Im thinking its most likely a d35, as putting a d30 in the front and a d44 in the rear seems, well pointless.

    here is the add

    Please let me know what you guys think!

    Dana 35's dont go in the front of jeeps they were used in rangers for a while but it would be either a dana 30 or dana 44 in the front.
    The grunt in me run it till it breaks then get a wrench to fix it!

    Good leaders lead from the front

    yeah i really want one, but cant bring myself to pay the pricetag people want for one. I mean 17K dollars for a rig that has 95K miles is just stupid IMHO

    just find you a cheap x model and upgrade it. I know the rubi comes with 44's front and rear but the HP d30 with upgraded shafts is just as good and you can get hp30 for about 200 bucks

    Hmm. this i did not know. Forgive my ignorance, I do not have a lot of experience with jeeps. I had a 98 that was double lifted on 35's but all of the work was done at a shop. So all of my mechanical knowledge comes from working on my Ranger that was double lifted on 35's as well.

    whats the difference in the X model and the Sports?
