The biggest problem you run into with just putting a regular dana 44 under the truck is the wheel speed sensors and how they mount on our vics. A few members have put jk dana 44's under their rigs but they were able to because the sensor mounting is similar to ours. Other than that, as mentioned, swapping in the m226 is the easiest bet as it's a bolt in. The only thing you would need for the swap, other than the axle is the locker harness. You'll definitely want to regear, as mentioned, if jumping to 35's. Sure the 3.36's will get you along but there is huge, noticeable, power loss. Doing the titan swap will help add reliability if going 35's and it gives the truck a great stance too, imho. Learn from others by researching and seeing their results, and what they wished they had done. Cheers.Greetings,
I currently have 09 SE 4x4, i want a locker. My cousin said i may be able to install a dana axel but I dont believe i am able to.
Also should i put 35's on? i know ill have to do a gear change.
Unless you put in a limited slip carrier, you have an open diff. Nissan never offered a limited slip rear end on 2nd gens. What you are feeling is the ABLS (Antilock Braking Limited Slip) and traction control nannies kicking in. This uses the brakes to control wheel spin at each wheel.I have the auto, currently have a limited slip diff, that kicks on when I usually sliding around in the mud. I want lockers, dont mind if they are electric or manual.
