When it comes to axles, there are desired axles and then there are junk axles. Jeep guys have always wanted Scout Dana 44s, and nowadays Dana 60s are super hot, but these are not the only options out there. If you are willing to change rims, you may find the rear axle of an Isuzu Rodeo or Honda Passport attractive. These Dana 44s come with disc brakes and 30-spline shafts and can run standard Dana 44 gears and lockers. Some things to know: They use a six-lug bolt pattern and some have a unique 4.30 gear ratio, but if you match it with a front Dana 44 from a Jeep Wagoneer, all you need is a gear change and you're ready to swap them under your Wrangler.
