The 1969 1/2 ton truck Dana 44 is a high pinion unit with drum brakes and the axles use small u-joints.1973 and newer Dana 44 1/2 ton axles have larger u-joints,but are drum brakes until 1976?If you are converting to the '73 and newer axles and to disc brakes,the housing would be a good starting point.

Would a 69 coil sprung dana 44 from a half ton truck be a good axle for a swap. I want an axle to swap into my 94 and I found this one.
If its' the stock axle, it'll have open kingpins. Not a axle worth swapping. (Go read http://77cj.littlekeylime.com/Dana44.htm)

However, it was more common place to swap axles than gears, back inthe day. Get the BOM and we'll tell you more.

agree with N on item one. and agree on 2 as well. I think it's bluesquirel that posted pics of the axle in the front of the donor he got, and it's clearly a 78-79 transplant.
