Verify with the seller if the front locker is just out of the axle or doesnt come with it. Locker selections for the jk rubi axles are a bit limited.
If your not crawlin, you must be mallin.

Theres no pinion flange in the front axle going by the pics. so id say the front is just the housing/shafts. Youd need a ring/pinion and carrier/locker to be ready to roll. Still not a bad deal. You can reuse your D30 knuckles, just make sure the tubes on the front axle arent bent. The Cs look gusseted somehow but the tubes definitely arent

I sent him a message. Just waiting to hear back from him.

Would it be worth it to get the rear axle as well or would i be better off just getting the front and putting gears/lockers in the front 44 and the rear 44 on mine now?

Nope. He took the front gears and locker and put them in his PR44. Either way I still made out i think. Got one totally complete axle with gears and locker and then the other just needs gears, lockers, and a pinion flange.

Would the pinion flange on my rear 44 work on the front 44 im picking up from him? If not what kind of price am I going to be looking at for one?

I think I have a flange here.

PM me after you get the axles and Ill give you what I got to see if they work.

Also for lockers you are limited as they said. OEM, ARB are all I know of.

Only thing I dont like about a Rubicon rear is you run two different length shafts. So you really need to carry two spares. As opposed to the non Rubi...one shaft works both sides

The rear pinion flange (at least on non rubis) is a cup style for the cv on the driveshaft, the front is a flat flange with 4 bolts so you cant swap them. You got a good deal at $1k. Use the rubi rear axle, but gear/locker for the front, throw a truss on it and rock it.

Will do jrod. So many decisions ugh.

So should i bail out on the rear and just get the front axle? Or should i just wait and try to find a complete front rubi axle with a locker??

If you can get it all for $1k then get it. Just a selectable locker for your current rear 44 will run you a $1k
