Finding a cheap one like that is always a great thing. Misc. bolts, brake lines, plus spare parts like starters and alternators, always makes a $200-$500 investment in a complete vehicle worth it.

If u r looking for a D44 don't get a rubi model as its more a D30 then D44. Look for a D44 out of a older model Ford. They are more a true D44 with stronger axle tubes.

If you find the one from the broncos it is only like an inch or two shorter than our d30. Some wheel spacers will take care of that.

you would have to change the output shaft. would be easier to replace with a 4x4 model

What about a divorced t case. That what I think I'm going to have to do with mine because the xterra 4x4 and the x 2x4 have different trannys, so unless I find a good donor x or pathfinder that's pretty much my option

Chuck, or anyone. Why couldn't he take a set of those dana 45 axles and put them under his Xterra. Then get a manual transfer case and a regular Xterra 4WD transmission? 45 isn't right is it? I'm driving so no time to check it. Why wouldn't that work? Seems easier than finding HD stock Nissan stuff. And much better aftermarket support.

Well if I can get a 4x4 tranny for a xterra then I can stick in titan axles which is the m205 after doing that I would still need the computer control module along with the wiring for the electronic 4 wheel switches. But unless I get both front and rear axles ill still need a locker for the rear. But the good thing about the titan axles is that they are 5 inches wider than the x which would allow up to a 14.5 wide tire which is extremely ideal to help counter the xterra weight

swap is pretty straightforward. virtually everything is bolt on.

you can normally pull a d30 and a np231 pretty cheap at a junkyard like Normandy.

dont forget all these parts also.
-front driveshaft
-4wd shifter assembly w/ linkage
-you need a 4wd transmision.
-rear driveshaft from a 4wd with the same transmission and rear axle you are running.
-and with any junkyard axles or tcase's, i would plan to give it a good check up and rebuild if needed

or if you can find a cheap 4x4 XJ on craigslist with a blown motor or accident damage, you can just buy that for a couple hundred and have all the parts you need.

and as for the d44, im assuming you're talking about the front D44 out of the rubicon, correct? that should bolt right in. But if you happen to find a Front d44, i would definitely be interested in it... Very Happy
i got 1 for sale

I dunno. to me this sounds ridiculously expensive.
4x4 tranny for a xterra
titan axles

I can understand wanting to keep it all Nissan. Really, I can. trust me, I'd like to keep mine all Mitsubishi. but let's get practical with this. It's got a full frame, right? this is kind of the goal, iasn't it? cheersright here cheers So why not get some wagonneer axles, use a New Process transfer case and adapt it to your Nissan 4WD trans. A lot of electronics gone, lots of CHEAPER aftermarket support, and easier to mess with than all that electronics? No room for a shifter? Really? C'mon, if you want to put a shifter in there we can make that happen.

See I neever new how to make it happen without the nisan stuff. Wagonner axles would be the best route that are strongest of the options. If I were to do this it would take some time to do because cash for a sas build is not on my most needed.
