Those Dana sizes match the F150 axles both regular and Max towing/Powerboost type.
The old style D44 axles were used in everything from Jeeps and Broncos to Scouts to 1/2 ton pickup rear ends. The were also used in many 1/2 and 3/4 ton front ends until the arrival of large displacement diesel engines in modern pickup trucks which were then fitted with the larger Dana 50 and 60 axles.Those Dana sizes match the F150 axles both regular and Max towing/Powerboost type.

Modern Wrangler Rubicon models have the newer Dana 44 axles front and rear but oddly max out at a 3500lb towing capacity even with the 392 engine option. Both the Wrangler and the Grenadier have the same transmission and fairly powerful engines. Both seem to have capable transfer cases. So what is left to account for the IG's 7,700lb tow rating versus less than half that number for the Jeep? Brakes? Cooling? Something else?
Too soft rear suspension.
No doubt a nice combination with a Bimmer engine yet after having a 300 TDi in a 110 feel it is a better choice. Always knew it would gets us back. Some where in Brasil.one of the most desirable defenders has a BMW 6 cylinder
and the Rover v8 was used in, uh... Everything.
The chevy 250 straight six was in everything from bread trucks and pickups to camaro's and chevelles.
The myth of "car engine vs truck engine" is nonsense.
Very true and feel fortunate that we were able to enjoy a great Rover with a very reliable drivetrain in an awesome off road friendly Country. The days of many things in No. America have long passed as well.At that point in time, yes. But the days of a modern diesel in North America have long passed.
Again, I have to disagree. The 4:0 flat six engine in my GT3 has 500 PS (493 hp; 368 kW) and 460 N⋅m (339 lb⋅ft). That’s a terrible truck engine and it has a lot to do with the architecture (short stroke, 9k rpm redline). But it would be plenty of power to motivate a truck …. So too with the lambo, which was designed not as a truck engine, but an engine for high speed use (both road and in the Rambo lambo).In general engine architecture doesn't determine whether it's more suitable for a truck or car. The torque and horsepower curves do, and those are the result of the tuning spec. Although a de-tuned V12 (e.g. Lambo LM002) can be made to work, it's overkill. All the torque and horsepower needed are well within the capabilities of 4's, 6's, and 8's. I find it puzzling that so many Corvette motors are installed in pimped out Defs. Not the one I'd pick to muddle thru the slop off pavement, or even for posing on Rodeo Drive.
