To determine how narrow we could make the housing, we started by measuring the stock axleshafts. We then compared those numbers to a listing of Dana 44 axleshafts available on Superior Axle & Gear’s website ( Our stock shafts were 37.1 and 17.1 inches from the end to the center of the U-joint cap. The shortest options we found were a Jeep Wagoneer short side of 14.69 inches and Jeep Rubicon TJ long side of 31.88 inches.
