    I have a dana 44 carier that I am selling it is from a jeep it was running with 4.09 gears. I had a guy ask me if this carrier would work with 4.88s? How can I find out?

    As long as it is an open diff. it will work. Because he is going to 4.88's you need the smaller carrier due to the fact that most places only make a 4.88's in a "Thick Gear". The gears thickness takes the place of the offset provided by the carrier. I just installed one last week in mine. They sent me a thick gear plus a carrier that was for 4.56 and up. It would not fit cause the gear was to thick. So they sent me a smaller carrier 4.10 and down and it fit perfect.
