    Default Welcome to the newest section, Grand Cherokee

    That's right, we've moved the old Dana 30, that broken 4.0L block and various other Cherokee parts out of the corner of the garage and make a little room for the Grand Cherokee folks! After all the Grands are technically REAL Jeeps.

    grands are.........well they are grand. lol Grands are a little larger and they have coils front and rear, available with a V8 and are a little more plush and know matter what Mudderoy says they are better.

    The v8s have a dana44a in the rear usually and the trans. depend on whether you have a v8 or 4.0. the v8s have 44re(I think) and the 6's have a 42re trans. the I6 usually has a 242 or a 231 tc and the V8's have 247/249 tc. the dana 30 comes in the front of both. The 98 ZJ also came with a 5.9 as an option. The normal V8 is a 5.2. I think the 93 Grands came with the same trans. as a Cherokee, in 94 they changed trans. As far as I'm concerned this was a BIG mistake.

    Isn't it true that the Dana 44 on the Grands are some of the worse axles made, like Dana 35 bad?

    They have a aluminium center section and have a problem with pinion bearings from what I understand. Plus they have NO aftermarket support

    Yep, that's what I read, the aluminium part. I was sad to hear that. Dana 44 on anything would be nice.

    My buddy might be sad to hear that the d44 rear from a grand is junk! he swears up and down the v8 must have a stronger axle.

    Well I don't know that they are junk. I mean the Dana 35 is widely believed to be a POS, but it is just right-sized engineered. It's fine for a stock vehicle. We just wouldn't want a Dana 44 from a Grand because it wouldn't perform for what many of us want it for, high torque use.
