Unless it's an '08, then ya get 3.73's. Did a quick online inventory search for the local area and even the stripped down X's show 'Next gen Dana 44 rear axle' in the standard equipment section of the window sticker. As much as it might upset us all, I think it's safe to say the D35 has gone the way of the dinosaur .i think all the jk's now come with a d44 rear now, no more 35. if you get the tow package i think you get the 4.10s
Actually, I think it's the other way 'round... although I wish it wasn't. My '07 JKX 2dr 6spd came with the D35 in the rear. The X's I saw with the auto tranny came with the D44. Some X's, with the S package, also came with the D44. Mine is a C package/11/'06 build date.As noted above, if you are looking at an '07 2DR X, with a manual tranny you will always get a D44, with the auto tranny, you will get the D35. I am not sure what the case is for the '08s.
I have an auto, NO tow package, 4.10's, 44 out back, 30 in the front. S package.I am sure the 6 speed has a D44 and the auto has the D35. That is taken straight from the Jeep literature as well as what I have seen under my 2DR. Mine is also a "C" package. My suggestion 07JKFan is to take another look to make sure you do not in fact have the D44.

Don't believe eveything you read
That was my understanding as well... at least when I purchased mine, but mine was definitely one of the earlier ones... 11/06 build date.I was under the impression that on the '07's, you only got the Dana44 if you added either tow package, or limited slip.
Not sure when the transition occurred, but they've changed so much over the last year. Kinda wish I'd waited a little longer, but then again... I would have missed out on a lot of fun in the meantime... :smokin:After the first few months they made the 44 standard.
