Details? Because there are a few at the Pull a Part here in town for about $70, I'm planning on picking up some Bronco 44 parts this week and could grab you one if you want. 78/79 Broncos, and several 79 and older F150/F100s

76 f150...$75 on CL (gonna offer $50 and see what happens)

No clue what gear ratio. But my research says this:

31 spline, big bearing, heavy duty housing, most likely posi.

My plans:

regear it myself (research says it is one of the easiest axles to do)
ARB
I would love 35 spline axles...but it looks like I will be sticking with 31 spline for now.

Yeah, I used stock XJ front brake lines on mine, and I think we did the same on his. They are a bit long, so you have to be mindful of how you route them, but thats also the great thing, they are long enough that you aren't limited how you have to run them. It also gives you plenty of flex in the hoes that you can set the calipers out of the way if you are working on anything back there.

I'll try to take a couple pics for you to give you an idea what I mean.

I can't wait for those pics

What tire size are you going to be shooting for? There is someone on here running 40" with modified Rubi axles (a JK). I think he just has gears and Chromoly shafts.
