This link is aimed the 8.8 swap for TJ's but has tons of good info. http://www.jeepsunlimited.com/foru ms/showthread.php?t=371713

Since already have 4.5" of lift, you should run an SYE and CV shaft already. But with the 8.8 now is the time to do it since you will be able to eliminate a T-case drop, and you will need to set the pinion angle anyway, so you can weld the perches to the correct angle with out using degree shims.

And yeah, had a bunch of trees come down with the blizzard we had back in February. There are a few trails, not alot. Maybe a few miles but we cut new ones every year.

I'm not too familiar with the D44, as for the carrier breaks. I know it has one but not sure where it is. Yeah, its a friends land. Was just there on fri clearing downed trees and trails for memorial day....

Yes all of them have the 8.8 up to 02, I think. After that they went to independent rear suspension. But if it has a solid axle, its gonna be an 8.8.

for the 8.8? Just use a factory one. The 8.8 does not have a carrier break so you can put any gear you want in there. If you have never done gears, then read up on it. It is an exact science. There is no such thing as "close enough" when it comes to setting gears. Its either "dead nuts" or wrong. Sure, you can ask me anything you want. I will do my best to answer your questions. If I don't the answer I will tell you I don't know. Bad advice is worse than no advice.

it mostly depends on your location. When I was building them for mail order, I was buying them a dozen at a time for $150/ea. Usually you can get them for $100-300. Go to www.car-part.com and search for it. It will give you a list of scrap yards that have them, and you can sort by distance or by price.

Pretty much any explorer from 91+ but 96-01 will have disc brakes.
