I've got the 8.25 (looks stock) but the Jeep did not, nor has it ever had a hitch on it (until I put one on it).

The aftermarket selection for the 8.25 is much slimmer than for the D44s.

Both are fairly strong, but the D44 is indeed a bit better.

Depends on your setup and desired tire size. If your at stock height with stock tires, you'll lose ground clearance.

Some, but not all of those are Jeep axles. That's a big list of alot of axles.
