k guy's here it is,
You can read and read and read about axle swaps.
which one is really the better or easier one?
what vehicle would be the best candidate for such a thing?
One thing to keep into consideration is the axle width. A Jeep YJ stock axle D30 front and D35 rear is 60" wide from end to end give or take 1 inch or so.
so you hear a real common one is the Early Bronco swap for a D44.
What we are looking at is, which vehicle is the best swap front D44 and rear D44, Chrysler 8.25, Ford 8.8, D60.. keeping in mind the bolt patern has to be the same and the front diff on a YJ is driver side( I believe, but keep forgetting hehe)so this should be on the same side.
Now how would a rear swap from a XJ, or MJ D44 be? 60 3/4" wide??
also would the Jtrucks be a good candidate as the have both front and rear D44's
the 91 and up XJ has the Chrysler 8.25 and it's 60 3/4"
which really is the better one?? MJ, XJ, Early Bronco, Scout??
they all come in the 2.73 to 4.88 gear ratio depending on the vehicle.
Thanks for your input guy's sorry for the long post
