Those are going to look so "right" on the waggy.

Narrow track and wide track quadra-trac axles are different. The NT have more offset than the WT. I have an NT set and I'm currently running a centered transfer case.

My current axle is offset 3.5" to clear the gas tank. The new axle is offset 6.5".

From what I'm being told, this is too much and will cause driveline vibes and issues.

Are you going to paint the wheels tan to match the body or are you going with white. Personally, I think tan would be best.

i'm going to throw the offset axle under the truck and see how it rides, before i put a penny into it or the front.

back up plan may involve swapping to small bearing spindles, and ford hubs/rotors in the front, then regearing my current D44, as nothing is being gained by swapping my rear axle, the only reason for swapping the rear is to keep the gears the same.

So, I'm going to toss the rear axle under my truck this weekend, and see how it drives, if there are turrible vibes, etc. Then i will either scrap the project or proceed forward with the swap as originally planned. Fingers crossed.



picked up new wheel cylinders, and got one side done before it got dark yesterday. I just need to get these on before i can do the swap so everything runs right. Also picked up a new brake hose and u joints for the drive shaft.


I hate drum brakes.

But look, here I am using the correct tool to avoid getting 16 stitches like last time.

My Cherokee is running a centered D20 with a lift, and can manage 70 without wild vibes... I think, as long as your gas tank is cleared, you'll be fine. But that's just a guess...

I still don't know why you can't move your transmission mount off to the side by an inch

Because that creates an even worse driveline angle. U joint angles need to be parallel. Do some research man!
