I don't really have the time or the skill to build an axle myself and would rather just buy an axle to just bolt in. Does anybody know of a company (preferably around Fresno) that builds axles like ECGS? I'm thinking about just ordering one from ECGS, but would rather buy local.
I was hoping to keep it in Fresno county. And dynatrac is way out of my price range and needs. I'm just looking for a basic axle swap to give me the 4.10 gears and enough strength to not worry about it. I don't do much wheeling and when I do, it's really mild since this Jeep is also my DD.
If you want a more custom setup, there's a shop here in Santa Clara called "Rearend Specialties" - I've sent a good deal of work their way. I'm not sure just how far they can go - but I've been wanting to ask him about building up a fore/aft pair of D44's for me...
I know it's not Fresno-area, but it's closer than Huntington Beach - and probably cheaper. I've seen everything up to about a Class 5 heavy truck in his shop.
Dave at Extreme geared my 8.8. But that was a few years ago and I have no idea what the cost would be now. Around here, the hard part will be finding an 8.8 in 4.10. PnP down on Jensen prolly still has some Exploders out there, but who knows what gears they have? A buddy of mine had an old waggy 44 rear laying around. Not sure if he still has it. It would have to be geared and set up for a YJ.
'92 YJ, 4.0, 5sp, 8.8, Tera 4-1, SYE, BDS 5" on 35's. 4.56 locked F&R. <><
