I love your Waggy. I want one and have been looking around for one. Not one near me for sale...and if there was, I'd be worried about its years in the rust belt. They go for crazy money on eBay. I guess all I'm saying is I'm jealous...subscribed to the thread!

Just checking in to say I'm still alive and still following. Keep it up Marn. My Cherokee gets jealous everytime I look at your Waggy...
You read it. You can't unread it!
1978 Cherokee Chief - bought for parts, and sold as a runner
1. Full rebuild on both axles. Keeping stock gears:
-Tie Rod Ends
-Cleaned up and painted.
2. Install lunchbox Locker in front end
3. Instal Manual Hubs in front end
4. New diff covers, welded steel or cast iron.
5. Refurbish those stock style steelies, swap over my tires, and mate them to the Dog Dishes
6. Install the axles and wheels!
I will update all of this as I go along.
Basic concept is to have "new" axles going under the truck. I figure i might as well do the work while the axles are out from under the truck and not have to worry about anything in the foreseeable future.
Any input is helpful. If you have suggestions on something I've missed, or on something I shouldn't bother with, please let me know, I dont claim to know everything or be right all the time, and appreciate constructive input.
