Dana 44 Disc Brake Options

Hello Gents, I have been reading this forum for quite some time and have loved all of the knowledge shared here. I have moved to the rear end on my project and was wondering if any of you know of a rear disc brake conversion kit for a dana 44? Also would anyone have any insight on changing to a locker? I like the 3:73 gears for my project as im almost finished with the stroked 272 matched to a T-5. any info would be awesome! thanks dustin

There are at least 3 wrecking yards here in East County; El Cajon, Hwy 67, and Greenyard that have piles of Ranger/Explorer disc brake posi rearends for sale ranging anywhere from $250 - $500 complete. 3:73 gears are most common in these rearends.

Rangers used Ford 7.5's and 8.8's. Explorers used 8.8's.

You want rear discs with a Dana 44? All 2004/2012 Nissan Titan's, Armada's and Infiniti QX56 have them. Jeep also uses the Dana 44.

Good info as always Bill...lots of these Nissan vehicles being parted out and advertised here locally in San Diego so supply should be plentiful. I am going to have to check that out myself.
