Digging threw part numbers and trying wrap my head around what's involved for this front axle build.
Ford hp 44 f150 wms to wms 66" ?
Wagoneer 80 to 92 wms to wms 61" ?
Tj wms to wms 60.5
So I'm shooting for 61" but then the ford and Chevy knuckle stuff will be bigger than the jeep stuff I'm thinking. So maybe a little bigger wms to wms. But I ca live with that.
From spicer Left. Right
Ford F-150 73-79 18.92". 33.94"
Wagoneer 80-92. 32.13". 15.83"
Difference 3.09". 1.81"
So the total amount I'll need to remove from the ford axle will be 4.9"
From what iv read on some other axle build these numbers seem to be off a little. But my info is from spicer so I hope that accurate enough. But I'll do more research this is just the start.
The total cost I have for all the little parts, locker, gears, axles, breaks, etc. is about 3 grand. That seams like a **** ton lol. But it's what I want.
If I'm running 35s and 538 gears I think that will be a good match.
I hope to use all junkyard axles and some new spicer u joints to keep the cost down. What do you think?
