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

 

Currie 44 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 tubes (right)
     
  Currie heavy-duty forged inner knuckles (right) are massively more robust than the stock knuckles (left) and are designed for severe off-road use with tall tires
     
  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
     
 

Lower control arm mounts are one-piece construction with integrated skid plates to help fend off bracket-seeking rocks

     
  Included pinion flange allows the factory driveshaft to be used without modification
     
  Rock-proof Currie nodular iron front cover protects expensive internals and adds structural support to the housing's face flange
     
Powder Coat   UV Stable Satin black powder coat finish adds long-lasting protection against rust and corrosion to keep your Currie 44 looking its best

 

 

Notes

Front Axle Disconnect (FAD): This axle assembly eliminates the factory FAD and requires a computer programmer, such as the Tazer Mini or Tazer Lite, to disable the factory sensor and turn off the FAD warning message 

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

Overall Width: Axle width is 68.0 inches (stock Gladiator Rubicon) between wheel mounting surfaces

Vehicle Lift: If using the factory height suspension or a leveling kit without bump stop spacers, an aftermarket track bar is required to clear the differential cover. The RockJock 4x4 track bar RJ-9120FJLF provides ample clearance.

Tie Rod: If the vehicle came stock with a narrow-track front axle (66.5 inches), a Rubicon width tie rod is required

Tire Size: Recommended maximum 37-inch tire size due to the inherent limitations of the stock brakes, wheel bearings, and axle u-joints
