    Looking for a "27 spline axle shaft" for a rear Dana 44, centered differential, tapered axle shafts with separate hubs.
    Additional info can be seen here Axle Woes.
    Let me know if you are able to help a fellow Jeeper out.
    Thanks,
    Oz

    Just spoke with the man from "jeep Paskenta" and no luck there.
    He did mention to check with some place in Sacramento that deals only with Jeep stuff but he didn't know the name for sure...something like JM salvage or MJ salvage. Does that sound familiar to any of you California guys?

    Yep J & W, if anybody has it, that's the place. Get ready for sticker shock.

    Thanks James. I couldn't get hold of them by telephone so I have sent them an E- mail.
    Here's hoping they have one and without the need to get a second job.


    Thanks Jim, I will give them a call.

    I saw that Herm had a jeepster axle for sale in his garage sale section. Might be worth calling him to see about your axle shaft.

    Maybe I missed it, but is it possible to covert this axle to 30 spline by changing the side gears?

    Good point, I am going to research this. Although the cost of the Power-Lok gears and 30 spline axle shafts may push me into a flanged D 44.

    Might contact Richard at 503-557-8911. He used to have the 27 spline Powerlock side gears and axle shafts for the Jeepster Commando axle. Not sure what he has left as he has been cleaning house. He has been gone Elk hunting but should be home tomorrow (Sunday) sometime.

    Been beating myself up after following this thread as I scraped one this summer after trying to give it away.

    Yep, that's how it goes sometimes.

    I think that I am going to go with the Dana 44 30 spline unit.

    I appreciate all who have assisted me with the leads on finding the shaft.
    Nick, I leave in the morning for deer hunt trip so i will be off the grid and wont be able to call Richard but thanks.
    As elusive as this is it seems I am probably better off with an axle that has better parts support.
    I'll hang onto this for parts that someone else may need in the future.
