Value of a JK44 Rear?

I am looking into selling my rear non rubicon JK 44 axle assembly as a whole, rotor to rotor. Iím wanting to know what a fair price would be. eBay is all over the ok e but Iíd like to be realistic. If someone has some input it would be much appreciated. The major components are:

ARB air locker
5.13 gears
Poison spyder diff cover
EVO lower control arm skids

85000 miles on it

Thanks in advance

Stock are usually a couple hundred bucks. Your really selling the locker and gears tbh. Location is also relevant to pricing. You can always take less

Should sell in this area pretty quickly.

My daughters grand cherokee needs the front coil/sway bar mount repaired. New mounts are $300 plus install. I can get a unrusted ebay axle special for $300

The hard part is finding someone who needs those gears. But I would say 700 bucks

Is that 85k mileage also on the ARB itself?

For those who don't know better, you could probably get a good price but I would personally stay away from it at that mileage unless it was being sold dirt cheap since there's no telling how much the inner seals have worn without taking the carrier apart...

ARB has only been in for a couple years, axles have been serviced regularly. I know the person who installed it and the previous owner fairly well. ARB might have 20000 miles on it if that. The Jeep was driven 2500 miles over the last two years and has only been wheeled a few times.

He is just an ARB hater and trying put it out there that there are lots of issues with them, which there are not.

It's the inner seals that keeps the compressed air in that wears down and/or worse case, wears into the carrier housing. Doesn't matter who installs it as the installer typically doesn't break open the carrier prior to installation or how much offroad time it has seen. It's a weak link in the design of the ARB...

Unless of course you sell it so cheap that it becomes a no-brainer to do just that. I suppose that is one approach.





My approach, assuming I had the storage space, would be to price it reasonably and just wait. Sooner or later somebody is going to spin a tube or bend a tube or have a pinion bearing shit the bed (and take the race with it). Its that person who will be looking for a replacement D44 now. When you need a replacement housing, this would be a good way to go, even if you have to regear it.


Good advice. I do plan to make it a reasonable price and store it until someone needs it. I was just trying to get an idea as to what someone would actual pay and whatís fair.

This right here. If someone wants it bad enough, they'll pay for it.

For guys that just see "ARB" without further looking into it, you could probably get $1k out of it.

But realistically because it's a non-rubi with the smaller spline carrier I'm assuming, I would say $600-$700

Sport/Sahara axles just don't fetch for much and that's coming from someone who has a modded Sahara...
