2019 JLU Sahara
I currently have a 19 JLU Sahara and just picked up a set of D44 takeoffs from a 21 Rubi. So far I've picked up 2 Mopar axle wiring harnesses, front and rear truss', and some paint to make sure I don't trust out during the winter. From what research I've done the D44 should be a plug and play minus the added axle width. I've already got aftermarket adjustable steering linkage, I just need to order a new tie rod bar from RPM to compensate. I'll be reusing the front rotors from my axle since I've read the Rubi and Sahara have the same brake setup. I've seen some info on needing extended brake lines and hoses but I'm not entirely sure I'll need to worry about that. Aside from tools and stuff to make the swap easier, am I missing any major components to do this swap? The D44 rear came with fully assembled, the front is missing the rotors but I have calipers for all 4 corners.
