Question about a D44
On another wheeler site I go to saw this listing:
Dana 44 6-lug with 3.08 gears, complete lockout to lockout including calipers. $150 obo
Will throw in a set of flat-top knuckles for another $25.
I don't know too much about axles, but I'm know down the road I'm gonna look into doing an SAS. I know I'd have to rear-gear it, but is this a good deal? Also, what are the flat-top knuckles and should I throw in the extra $25 for them?
I believe the axle came out of a 76' Chevy Pickup.
Thanks for any help.
EDIT: Also, how much work am I looking at to have to convert this to the Ranger 5 bolt pattern? Would it be easier just to get new wheels?
