I have a 2004 GC, with 4" lift, & want to replace D35C with d44 or whatever else would work. What axle would be more or less a direct swap? (I'm sure this has been addressed before, sorry)

front axle is a Dana 30 :)

rear axle is a Dana 35 which may have "C" clip shafts or could have the same bearing set up as a 44 and have pressed on retaining rings. it is a unicorn axle you have as I heard they fitted 35's to some yet this is the first one I have ever seen.

The easiest way to change it is to fit a 44A with the same ratio as your current 35 and think you will only need the prop shaft, handbrake cable and flexi brake line of the 44A to make it fit :) but don't hold me to it ;)

44a is a great axle unless you plan on serious rock crawling, then it might need some form of braise/guard to prevent the pumpkin from serious damage
