Its 2012 d44 sport btw. Will it work? Will the carrier fit? Same gear ratio 4.11.

I believe you'll need the axles too. The carrier is a different spine count.

What about the holes for the wires to exit? Are they in the sport housing? Not sure.

Can confirm as stated above that without a doubt you need Rubicon axle shafts.

I asked the same question awhile back. The carrier bearings are a different size on the rubicon carrier than the sport

another thing to consider with the locker aside from it not working is the axle shafts are unequal length for the rubicon vs non rubicon 44.

Thanks all - the shafts for starters became the deal breaker
