product note
There was a Jeep Dana 44 differential Side Bearing change which occurred during the 1967 to 1968 model years, The Jeep Parts Books show the changeover by by referencing it to Jeep axle assembly part numbers instead of by year. The very early production trucks with 258-6 and 358-V8 engines will have the earlier, small ID bearing. From what I can remember from working on them, almost all the mid-1967 and newer trucks had the new bearing with the exception of some heavy GVW models that did not change until late 1967 or early 1968. If you have a 1967 or 1968 model year Gladiator truck, you should verify what diff side bearing you have before ordering!
All bearings are not created equal for fit or durability, so we only stock first class, long lasting, Timken® Differential and Pinion Bearings for your Dana front axle. Timken® was and is a a major original equipment supplier of top-notch bearing components to Dana Spicer. Since I first started rebuilding Dana axles in the mid 1970's, I have found Timken® Bearings to be the most consistent in relation to the published dimensions of any bearing on the market which makes rebuilding an axle right the first time a WHOLE lot easier!
