The high pinion 44 is an all new, heavy duty housing made 100% by Currie. Our housing features a thick wall reinforced nodular iron center that uses the larger JK high pinion 44 gears. These gears feature a larger ring gear than a standard 44 as well as a 29 spline Dana 60 size pinion gear. Axle tubes are 3" OD with .375" wall and Currie forged CJ/44 knuckles are installed.
These are completely custom-built units that are made-to-order to each customer's specifications and application. They provide a much stronger assembly than the factory frontend in Jeep CJ vehicles.
Housings do not include ball joints, cover or yoke.
JK/TJ/XJ upper control arm bushing ear is cast onto the housing but can be cut off upon request for leaf spring application vehicles
Requires late model Jeep JK reverse rotation gear sets, and non-Rubicon Dana 44 high ratio carrier only
The maximum recomended tire size is 35 inches
