Default 1976 Jeep J44 - Parts hard to find?

Hello guys,

Been kinda busy with work and several changes in my life (fortunately, for better ) and I havent been online much lately.

Anyhow, a client here in PT is restoring this beauty (I believe it was a joint venture between Jeep and Mitsubishi) and is having a hard time finding some parts:

Steering joints
Wheel cylinders
Hub seals

Does anyone know a good site where I can find replacement parts for this Jeep?

Thanks in advance and hope all is well with y'all!

Having a hard time finding much relating to these things. I'm gonna dig around some more and see what I can find.

This guy restored an '81 and probably knows places to get parts and all that if he's reachable. Good luck

Thanks Cali! Thats some good info!

I have found 2 parts diagram that maybe could help identifying if these needed parts can be found on other Jeeps (CJ#?)






What do you think?

i've seen one of these rare jeep/mitsubishi flat fender jeepies in New Mexico a few yrs ago.. airforce guy had been station in Japan (i think) & brought it home from there...

As i recall it was not as old as the body style would lead you to believe.. I wanna say it was manufactured in the 80s..

Any chance you could get the bearing numbers from the current bearings and cross-reference them? I tried to cross these numbers listed on the sheets but couldn't come up with anything. Might try researching old closed-knuckle D25, D27 & D44's too...maybe the knuckle seals are similar?
