TIA

I believe they were crown vic rims. If you get some you will need to use a die grinder in the center to open the hub area just a mm or so.

OK got a lot to update on here. I sold the 38.5 Boggers, but have bought some 38.5x15 monster mudders.

I also bought a For 9 inch rear and a jeep wagoneer dana 44 front to start building so maybe I can actually run these gumbos!

Started tearing into the 9 inch first. Going to be 5.83 ratio with a spool, 31 spline shafts. Just getting started but coming along nicely so far. Oh yeah will be doing spring over but ditching the shackle lift so I will be going from around 6" of lift to around 9".

Borrowed some 5x4.5 to 5x5.5 adaptors so I could test fit my 15/38.5-15 monster mudders (on white wagon wheels) to see just how much lift I'll need to have. Think it looks pretty good!

Started setting up my my third member of the nine inch. specifically tonight I worked on the pinion housing. but have been working over the last couple of weeks cleaning things up. Set the preload to @ 20 in/lbs. It was tough getting that last little bit of preload set. takes some serious torque to get that nut to turn!






Also received box 1 of 2, of front Dodge dana 44 parts I bought from a fellow YJ owner I found via craigslist crawler. this will give me my 5x5.5" wheel bolt pattern to match the nine inch. Got everything from the knuckle out including calipers for 100 bucks. using UPS labels from my work shipping will be less than 20 bucks for both boxes! Both sides are flat top knuckles So I can do high steer too!

Did a little more work on the 9 inch center section. got the new 5.83 ring gear seated on the spool and then locktited and torqued all the bolts. Installed new Timken bearings that came with the Yukon kit. Very high quality parts in this master rebuild kit!

Installed my Jegs inner axle seals. Hope to keep the diff fluid in the middle where it belongs. I have sealed outer bearings that do not rely on the diff fluid for lubrication.

Moving along on the 9 inch build! Center chunk in place.



Cleaned up the backing plates. Coat of primer on them. Top coat tomorrow. Then it can all go back together.



Am I gonna get lucky enough that my current driveshaft will work? Maybe!

Looking good man. After seeing your backlash videos I have no doubt you are from the New England area . Good job on setting the gears up. It looks like the third member is easier to do. I've messed with them but never actually set one up.

OK so got the 9" done. Time to start on the 44! Hardest thing I did tonight was getting the 9" off the bench to work on the 44! Man that thing is heavy with all its guts in it!


First thing to do, layout all the major parts and take a general inventory.



Got Dodge W100 knuckles and bearing hubs. Matches the 5x5.5" wheel pattern of the 9" rear. I need to send this flat top knuckle off to be machined and drilled and tapped for high steer arms to bolt on.




So still undecided if I want to use the lockouts or just leave the solid engagement of the dodge knuckles.



So I started pulling it apart, here is one of my favorite parts of this build! Powertrax lunch box locker!



Then I was looking things over and saw some critter had been storing nuts in my axle tube!
