Pinion bearing diameters are all the same for JK axles. Just the gap between them and the needed crush sleeve are different.
I looked at my directions for my Dana 44 ARB locker and the part number for the carrier bearings is #160101. Model number is RD117. Funny thing is it says for 30 spline 3.73 and down but I got 4.88's, I thought that was up???
JK 44 axles use "thick cut" gears, meaning the overall thickness of the ring gear is greater, resulting in using 1 carrier offset as opposed to 2 for standard 44's. A 3.73 and numerically lower carrier will work with ALL JK gears. A 3.92 and numercally higher will not work.
2007 2dr X, 6sp, 35's on D44's, 2" lift, cage, hydro, etc.
