yup, thats it. Unless you get a full carrier locker for the 44.

Also, make sure you get install kits for both.

And make sure you get gears for whatever 44 you have... high pinion and low pinion are different. :)

You can get "thick" gears so you don't have to buy a new carrier assuming you arent going with an arb or detroit.
