Answer This Question


I have a customer who put a dana 44 out of a 2000 Honda Passport in his old Jeep and now wants to purchase a locker for it. after reference I found this part number for the Detroit for a 2000 Isuzu Rodeo and if I recall they use the same rear diff. Can you please check fitment for me.

Asked by WILLIAM on March 08, 2016


the passport and rodeo used the same rear axles which are is dana 44 From at least 1994. From 94-97 the axle is primarily the same as all other 44's. In 98-till end of production it changed some. They used the same carrier for all the year which is the 3.93 and down and uses a thick cut ring gear to make up the difference. now the problems comes, in 1998 they made it a hybrid type of axle, what they did was beef up the pinion size to the size of a dana 60. So yes the locket will work in the axle but not with the factory gearing. independent4x is the only company I know of that make a ring and pinion for that axle. hope this helps some.

Good as it gets.

I've used several of these in strictly offroad vehicles and all have been flawless. From a GM Corporate 14 bolt to a Dana 44, they are tough as nails. I recommend these to anyone that wants to get serious offroad and wants to do it right the first time.
