Look for one in a Gladiator. Most of the lower GVW's (less than the J4000) were Dana 53's. That is where I got mine. Actually, I pulled both axles (closed knuckle D44 front / D53 rear with PowerLock) which got me 4.27 gears and removable / self-adjusting brake drums.
You can also try Walck's for a used unit. I think I got a replacement clutch pack from him (although that was a long time ago.)

This guy in Felton ran a CL ad about a year ago and he had 2 old Gladiators (Jeep gladiator truck parts - call with needs.717-873-1703)

I looked in my contact list and found that about a year ago, a guy in Red Lion listed Gladiator axles set on CL: (Jeep FC, wagoneer, jtruck j10 axles for sale closed knuckle dana 44 front dana 53 rear 4.09 gears $300 ... Many other parts for sale. Call or text 717-779-7528 anytime day or night). I think this is the current ad he is running: http://york.craigslist.org/pts/5290280364.html
