Which if we're looking at the odds, it probably is. That is where the leak was in my 2000 I had years ago, and where it was in the 98 I have now. If so, buckle on your workbelt, get a ton of ziploc...

Or buy 5x4.5 to 5x5 spacer adapters for the front (since you need to make up ~3" in width anyways), and then you would have the same lug pattern on both ends. The JK axle is 63" WMS I believe.

You will want to verify it is indeed an XJ 44. Narrow track generally refers to the D44's that were in CJ's (the other was considered wide track and was an AMC 20). The pumpkin on these is generally...

As a temporary fix, you can pull the fog light fuse and relay. This will bring your headlights back into proper operation, while you search out the way to fix it by adjusting the wiring.

Amazon, spicer ball joints. Buy these and be done for another 160k miles. Jeep used them OEM in your ride, and they've lasted this long, right? Plus they are usually cheaper than most other ball...

It seems to be that nice XJ's are getting harder to find, and people are selling them for more and more. It's hard to say if this is a good price because this seems to be a relatively new...

Grinder with a wire wheel will work fine, and that paint you picked should be fine too. It's an axle, it's not going to stay looking new for long anyways.

Do you have any idea how many miles...

Agreed. I would want some 2x4 tubing going into the frame rails to help support all that weight. The little tie in brackets that bolt underneath help when pulling from the bumper for recovery, but...

Or just buy a spindle from one of the many places they are available, make/have made an arm and mount it to your current bumper? The current one looks a helluva lot better than the Smitty one, imho.

I like how it's comp cut, but then lifted so freakin high there is no way the tire even gets close to the original fender location, much less the newly clearanced comp fender. Get that thing down a...

I've not done the Durango alternator, but recently when I replaced mine I used the v8 ZJ alternator (136 amp). It fit fine with the expected grinding of the brackets.

I can't speak to the ZJ brake conversion, since I have an XJ 44 and used 8.8 parts to convert mine, but I did get rid of the ABS on my 98 when I swapped the d35 for an XJ d44. Here is what I did:

That's great, but it ain't gonna help you get those upper arm bushings out of the axle side mounts.

Right, it would probably be safer to throw the lugs on there and pry against them, as opposed to the threads on the studs.

So long as you do them one at a time, the axle shouldn't rotate too much. It's not difficult to get it back in line with a ratchet strap (go to sway bar to rotate forwards, and trans crossmember to...

If you are going to take the time to clear the CEL, then you might as well pull the codes and see what caused it. That makes much more sense than just clearing it and not worrying about it.....

There is no downside at all from switching from a d35 to a d44. There really is no downside to the dana 44 so long as you are going to keep the tire size reasonable (37" or less). It's a solid, stout...

Everything will bolt right up. The only issue you will have is driveshaft length. The snout on the d44 is longer than the d35 (but very similar to the 8.25). You can pull a junkyard shaft from an XJ...

For about 1-3" of lift, yes his shocks would work for you. Anything over 3" and they will be too short. The coils will not work, they aren't the same size as ours.

That bumper actually looks decent. Can we get some shots of the tie-in brackets on the Jeep? Also can you measure the tube it's made of (like width/height)?
