Scout axels

I have a 1974 cj5 with nt Dana 44 rear and nt Dana 30 front. I was thinking about swapping them out with a set of scout axels but I didn't know if they would be way too wide. Any advice will help

I'm running Scout's, they are 59" vs CJ's which are I think 53" I run stock fender flares and the tires stick out a little. You will have to outboard the front springs though.

I have a 86 CJ7 wide track Jeep factory Jeep Dana 44 rear and cut down Scout Dana 44 front. in order for the Jeep to work right you should turn the front knuckles to gain caster.Only the 80 Scouts had 2 degrees caster. I run a 4" lift and the local shop added 10 derees for me it drives great!

I had the same setup as you and swapped to Scouts, I'm very happy with them. Scouts are a little more work but I really like the extra width without going to full width.

Thanks man, I'm sold. They look great. I was worried about them being too wide but they look good. Thanks for the pictures. best thing about the NT axexs is i dont get mud everywhere. lol. but mud washes off..

I had a shop cut 3 5/8's off the tube and then had a chromemolly shaft made up for for the drivers side.

That sounds expensive. I have access to a fab shop and a machine shop. I would just have to order axels. I think I may use them as full width, if I start cutting tubes I'm going to go with a 9" and 44 front
