Nope everything would be custom to do it, everyone does it different. Pirate would be the place to search around though.

Or any engine/tranny/tcase combo that will give you a drivers drop. IIRC 83 and up Cj's use wide track axles. I believe these are very close if not the same width as a YJ.

Early CJ's use Narrow track with a passenger drop front axle, these are IIRC ~1972 to 1982, before that they were even narrower. You CAN put them under a CJ of course they will stick out a bit, but it gives you more stability... It would be no different then puttin g FULL WIDTH axles under a YJ.

Wide track axles into an early CJ used to be a common swap for those that did not want to run Waggy axles (wider yet but they ARE ran in CJ's) You have to outboard the springs on the frame to do it. What you fail to realize is how truly narrow they original NT CJ axles are, and honestly they are not the best for wheeling on off camber terrain. I have layed my CJ2A on its side going around corners with a steep banking a couple times, I will happily take some wider axles under it and it CAN BE DONE.

IIRC this flatty has Waggy axles under it that are wider then YJ axles... Doesn't look badly out of proportion to me, and would be a pretty stable wheeler. It is all about what you want out of the rig.

Besides, if you don't want it wide you can run some large offset rims. I am running H1 rims on my YJ with 7" of backspacing to bring the width back in that I thought was too wide.







I know this is a late reply, but i just came across this thread while searching for something else. I have seen that green flattie in person and those are definitely not waggy axles. The entire drivetrain in that rig is from a Toyota.

I believe it would work better with a 4 cylinder yj as the cj-2a's nose is too short for an I-6. To strech the nose would ruin the original look. When people do engine swaps in the flat fenders they use a pinto 2.3, V-6 or V-8 because of the short nose. Since the orignal flat head 4 only had 60 hp, even the jeep 2.5 would have twice the hp and with 5:13 gears that the willys had would make an awesome off roader.
