hey bj, i have all the brackets for my axles lined up minus the front upper control arm mounts. ballistics doesnt have anything for the passenger side and im thinking the drivers side is going to have to be a truss of some sort as the mount from a d30 is casted to the housing. any input?

No I don't sell myself.

My job is nothing special, I'm a Maintenance Technician. It pays ok, I'm just really good at saving my money and not buying useless crap. I use to have a problem with wasting it though.

Sure ya did. Ok you might have but it's more fun to think you were MallCrawlin.

Yeah I'm spending a lot but I'll basically have brand new axles that are very built.

What axle is it? TnT sell a Ford HP Dana 44 truss if that's the axle you have, I can't remember what you got.

This was after I blew up my front driveshaft on Hell's Revenge. I thought I was gunna have to get tow strapped by Colorado 5.9 (that's who's at the top of the hill) but I smoked my tires and made it up.

Exactly. The second half of Hell's Revenge was actually more fun with 2 wheel drive. It made everything more challenging.

So I found a pair of 87 waggy 44's on a local forum for $350. I'm gunna get these instead because I won't have to pay for shipping and they're $50 cheaper than the 1990 44's I was gunna buy from ebay.

I guess since you'll be building them up pretty much to new it doesn't matter how old they are, but you are going back 3 years. Ah well. Have you already arranged for these? What about the guy you got the others from?

It doesn't matter what year as long as it's between 86 and 91. Yeah next Thursday I'm going to pick them up from him. The other guy already had someone interested but was waiting for me to get the money, I'll just tell him to stop holding them for me. This will be way easier and cheaper.

Why not look for JK Rubi 44's instead of spending $5k on 20 year old axles? May have to do a little searching, but I'd be willing to bet they could wind up under your ZJ for less than $5k.

I can only think of three reason's why. 1) The JK axle is (I think) 65" wide, the waggy 44's will be 62" wide, I want to keep it as close to stock width as possible. 2) I don't have all the money at once to pay for the JK axles. 3) Building my own axles will be more fun and I can learn a lot from doing it myself.

I vote JK axles, although I believe they use a Dana 30 out shaft and knuckle

also the jk 44's have dana 30 outers and a couple other things that make them weaker than you average 44
