The Mopar 44 offers lower weight than a 60 and bigger discs than a stock TJ Dana 44. Other benefits are 32-spline shafts and a very palatable price point of just $3,995.

The ProRock 60 also offers more ground clearance than a Dana 44 and adds some bragging rights on the trail. Depending on the locker, the ProRock 60 would come in around $5,600 to $5,900. Both have their benefits, but it all comes down to what you can afford, and there is no wrong answer here. This TJ owner, with no more than a 4.0:1 transfer case and a stock engine, would probably have no issues with the Mopar 44. However, if there were plans to do deeper transfer-case gearing or an engine swap down the line, there is no question we'd save up a little longer and go with the ProRock 60.
