    Full size jeeps used the full size d44 like chevy ford and dodge. The Full size (wagoneer i think) is the exact same knuckle on the chevys. EVERYTHING bolts up.

    This is a good link for flat top stuff. http://77cj.littlekeylime.com/flatop_knucles.html

    Good read , so how many have ever actually seen the pass side flattop drilled and tapped from the factory :ears:

    from that article :

    [​IMG]

    Dana never made a passenger side knuckle that was drilled and tapped from the factory. This is a general misconception that the above knuckle disproves. They are very rare but they are out there, so keep your eyes open. So far I only know of one other knuckle other then the one I found. Stamped # RC38618

    Just a word of caution for others looking at this. Jeep also used a non-flat top knuckle on some of the full size D44s. It looks similar to the GM 10B one.

    I am using a Jeep D44 knuckle for my crossover steering. It works fine. The only thing that I have found that is different is that the spindle bolts are not in the exact same place and the caliper is moved a little bit upward. It has not caused any problems sofar.

    I have a chevy 10 bolt knuckle with a WFO steering arm and 7 month old ball joints in it I'll be selling when I put my D60 underneath my truck in a couple weeks.

    Email me if intersted.

    Thanks,
