No You can't. You will need to find the ring gear specific to your model axle. Not all dana 44s or 30s are built the same.

Um...what?

I am not aware of anything for the dana 30.  But the 44 you can make some upgraded parts fit.  For example, Jantz Engineering has kits that lets you put the larger JK44 ring gears into early 44s but requires some clearancing inside the housing and really isnt necessary for an early CJ unless you plan on running chromo shafts and 37s.  Sean at River City Differentials is probably they guy to talk to.  He prefers dana/spicer parts on the new 44s but not sure if he has a favorite for the older axles.
