    Default What year Dana 44 rear end is this?

    Need to make sure I buy the right drums.

    Scout II - Dana 44 - had 3.54 gears
    72 (marked below pinion on housing)

    C-85284 (Marked on stock truss/fin)

    Backing plates measure around 12" OD (Bendix 322290-L/R)

    I picked up this rear end without drums.

    Scout II dana 44 uses 11" max ID drums. Same from 72 to 80.

    Are you sure this is stock?

    That might not be a bad thing. Are the shoes in place? Might be there's a way to figure this out by the part number on the shoes and on the backing plate. Those still could be 11 inch brakes, though.
