If you want a stock TJ Rubicon Dana 44 look here. The shipping is $300 (at least form Florida to Oregon)

well I am finaly taking the plung, I though I had that hybrid 8, it came on the market again for a G
but he didnt want to deal with shipping and ended up selling it to some one local

maybe a good thing because then I found this D60 converted to 5 lug with 4 link and coilover brackets for 100 bucks more

dang after doing a little more studying, I am scared to mess with the triangulated 4 link
and it looks like I would need to redo my cats, they appear to be in the way, I may have to pass
