The Currie 44 front crate axle is a direct bolt-in solution that reduces the overall cost by enabling you to retain the complete stock TJ outer knuckle assemblies (brakes, hubs, etc.) and stock wheel bolt pattern.

 

Currie 44 Front Axle Features

  Currie 44 high-pinion nodular iron center section features 14 lbs of reinforcement over a stock 44 with thicker walls and webbing to deliver superior strength and rigidity
     
  Large 3 in. diameter x .5 in. wall axle tubes (left) are more than 2.5 times stronger than the stock Dana® 30 tubes (right)
     
  Currie heavy-duty forged inner knuckles (right) are massively stronger than the stock knuckles (left) and are designed for severe off-road use with up to 37” tall tires
     
  Genuine Dana Spicer ball joints provide original equipment quality, consistency, and long, maintenance-free service life
     
  Currie Performance 4340 chromoly axles provide superior end-to-end strength over OEM carbon steel axles. Black oxide coating helps protect from surface corrosion for improved durability
     
  Rock-proof Currie nodular iron front cover protects expensive internals and adds structural support to the housing's face flange
     
  UV Stabel Satin black powder coat finish adds long-lasting protection against rust and corrosion to keep your Currie 44 looking its best

 

 

Notes

Outer Knuckle Assemblies: The Currie 44 is designed to reuse the complete stock TJ/TJ/XJ outer knuckle assemblies from the ball joints out (knuckles, hubs, disk brake calipers, and rotors)

Differential Carriers: The center section is designed to use standard Dana 44 carriers (ARB RD117 or Eaton Elocker 19977-010).

Overall Width: Axle width is 60.5 inches (stock TJ width) between wheel mounting surfaces

Tire Size: Recommended maximum 37-inch tire size due to the inherent limitations of the stock brakes, wheel bearings, and axle u-joints. Tires larger than 31 inches may require vehicle modification for proper clearance.
