    Deal or No deal?

    Looking at a 2015 D44(front) minus the locker. Gussets installed. Comes with 4.10 R/P for front and rear, and also rubicon axle shafts for front and rear.
    They are asking $1500 for all.
    Is this really a deal if I have to buy a new carrier for it?
    And the 4.10s, if I'm regearing the rear (currently 3.73), I'll pry want something deeper for taller tires anyway. So those will sit on my bench and collect dust.
    So, Deal or no deal?

    Seems a bit steep to me. I think the housing alone is worth $6-800 tops. If you are not getting the carrier/locker and the R/P aren't going to get used anyway, I think your money would be much better spent on a PR44 housing for ~$2200.

    If you are jumping from a D30 front to a D44 front, from the center section out is identical between the two variants. While the 44 R/P is larger/stronger, most breaks/bends occur in the tubes. This is where the Prorock44 housing would help.

    Hope this helps!

    This is what I was thinking as well. Thank you.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
