Nice! Looking forward to the install of these axles. May give me some guidance when I decide to do the swap.

Ok, replaced my radiator, it wasn't that bad. Took about 2 hours start to finish. But now my water pump is leaking.
So i ordered a water pump, thermostat, and serpintine belt. Should do that when it gets here.
Here is a recent picture of my jeep after wheeling the other night. I havent posted a picture since my sliders.
Sooo here she is...





And a picture while the radiator was out.

Looks like this will be a pretty sweet build! Counting the heims, I'm assuming you're doing a four-link for the front and rear? Will you be doing a triangulated four-link with a truss on the 14b?

Ah, gotcha. So how well does the track width match up between the 44 and 14b? And do you plan to swap the drums for discs? I look forward to seeing what you do with that 242. I'm looking to do the same sometime this year. Looks like you have your work cut out for ya!

the dana 44 is 68 inches wms and the 14 bolt is 67 inches wms.
and the picture with the heims has the disk brake brackets for the 14 bolt.
right now i have an np247, but im swapping it out for an np231.
from what i have seen, i need one with a 23 spline input. i found two, one from an 01 tj and one from an 04 tj.
i will just need to swap input shafts from my np247.
and ya, there is a lot of work to be done. i just got a job at honda so my cash flow with be a bit bigger now so i can speed this build up a bit

It was a 93 with just over 28k miles. He never drives it, but still managed to smash in the rear bumper pretty bad.
