Good thing that you have 9 more of those things just hanging around. Those stamped steel edges are nice and sharp.

Somewhere between easy and impossible depending what you wanted to do and how crazy you wanted to get. Could be as simple as notching or pie cutting a section out and pounding it around till it meets up and weld it. If you show me a picture of what you're thinking I can probably get you a better idea/answer but with just that info it's hard for me to say anything.




Andy, no clue on the RCD gig... I need to give him a ring sometime and find out.

Okay, here's the rundown.

There are 3 axles out there for this year range.

All Wide Track Cherokees got the same axles. (Dana 20 or Q-Trac didn't matter)
All J trucks got the same axles. (Dana 20 or Q-Trac didn't matter)
All Narrow Track Wagoneers/Cherokees got axles based on transfer case option.

the wide track cherokees used a rear Dana 44 that split the difference between the "centered" (still slightly offset) D44 on D20 rigs and the very offset D44 from Narrow Track Q-Trac wags/cheros

The j trucks have a longer wheel base so the difference is not an issue.

To further that, I will quote somebody from IFSJA

Quote:
That is an easy question, (if your mesurements are correct)

The WT (Cherokee) axle shares the same Left side axle lenght as a NT QT axle, and shares the same Right side axle lenght as a NT D-20 axle.

Plugging in the numbers
For the WT axle:
61/2 + 5" for left side = 35.5" Left side (to center of yoke)
61/2 - 5" for right side = 25.5" Right side
For the NT axle
59/2 +3.5 " For left = 33.0" left
59/2 -3.5 for right = 26.0"

(Note: something is off by 0.5" as the NT (D-20) right should = WT (all) right side
as they share the same axle part #)
But plugging along, (assuming correct measurements)
A NT QT will have a 59 - 35.5 right side lenght = 23.5"
or an offset of 6"

(Pretty sure my WT Cherokee is closer to 4.5" offset and QT NT are closer to 6.5" offset, but
either way the NT QT rigs have a pretty good offset)

So, issue is that I will likely run into problems because I am using the furthest offset axle.

-I cannot run WT axles under my truck because they will not fit with my tire/lift combo.

- I cannot regear my rear axle and run the D440 front because then I'd have 5 lug in the back and 6 lug up front.

- I cannot simply swap to ford F-150 outers up front because then i would have to regear my rear, and still run 5 lug wheels all around.

- I can theoretically re-drill my hubs in the back to run 6 lug, and regear my current rear axle.

- I can try to find an axle out of a 74-78 narrow track wag or chero with the tow package gearing.

- I can POSSIBLY run a Dana 18 rather than a dana 20. Waiting to confirm this. In that situation, i could swap the D18 guts into my D20 case, or i could run the stock D18 twin stick. I'd get twin stick and 2.46:1 low range rather than 2:1 low, so there may be an advantage there if it'll bolt up (concerned with bore size)
