Do I sense an evil streak?

Ah well, it seems almost a shame to paralyze an old Wagoneer like that. They were pretty nice in their time. I still like to see a mint condition example driving around.

I could care less about the vehicle I just want the axles. Dana 44 front and rear, ARB lockers front and rear, IDK the gear ratio though. It'd be perfect if they were 4.56!

I'd check the ratio forsure....make sure they're not for the high gear break (if ARB even makes that?)

This is the only axle upgrade I'm going to do so it's worth it IMO.

Thanks Jonathan.


So this is the goal for the axles. I'll probably do black diff covers though.

Time for progress pictures!!!!!!! The pictures aren't in exact order (you'll notice the rear bumper installed in one then not in the next) but this is the order I had everything done.

We'll start with no bumpers and roof rack, right after I got my Clayton's installed.


No roof rack and no bumpers.


Rear bumper installed.


Right before front bumper was installed.


Front bumper installed.


Right before Sliders went on and front bumper got trimmed.


Sliders installed.


Shot that shows everything.

did you ever get the front bumper alignment figured out? good to see you got some axles! youve got a bunch of work ahead of you making those fit but im sure you knew that. go buy a welder if you dont already have one.

Heck yeah Brian, nice find on those axles. When will said rear long arms and 35's be done? I want to see this beast. I think the 35's be fricken rad, it wont make your jeep look so long and silly with that rear bumper and tire on the back. It'll make it look major beastly.
