The JK Rubicon Dana 44s are 65 inches wide from wheel-mounting surface to wheel-mounting surface. The factory YJ is 61 inches wide, so the new front and rearends are 2 inches wider per side. Since new wheels need to be purchased to facilitate the JK Dana 44's 5-on-5 bolt circle, a little more backspacing will keep the track width the same and decrease scrub radius up front for easier steering. Or, you can have your tires sticking out 2 inches more per side for better stability.
