    Yup. Im well aware of the model 20 problems. The HD versions of the AMC 20 used in some of the wagonners had one piece axle shafts and held up much better than the CJ versions. The first axle swap on my '98 TJ was a HD AMC 20 rear, Dana 44 front out of a waggy.. they held up very well considering what I put them through. Bent one rear axle shaft and broke a few front stock axle shafts and joints. Im running a Dana 70 rear and Ford RC60 front now

    The only year they used the 44 rear in the CJ's was 1986... and IIRC there were actually a few early 86 CJ's with the AMC 20 in there. Most have the 44 though.
