American-made Core 44 housings accept the latest generation Dana 44 gear design, with a larger diameter ring gear and bigger pinion shaft to withstand hard off-road use. Housings feature forged bearing caps and a unique G-lock adjuster nut system to set backlash and carrier bearing preload. Core 44 axles use additional ribbing on the cast center section and 3-inch diameter, 5/16-wall DOM axle tubes with forged inner Cs for use with tall, aggressive tires. The Core 44 is a direct replacement for the Dana 30 under the front of your leaf sprung 87-95 YJ Wrangler or coil sprung 97-06 TJ Wrangler. All brackets are designed around stock mounting points, and are laser cut and CNC formed from 3/8-inch steel for added strength. Company also gusseted and reinforced any weak points to prevent damage to the brackets and finish the housing in a UV-stable black powdercoat.
