After looking at the picture on my computer (I was on my phone) that front axle looks like the front of a dual rear axle truck so you have a flange on the rear, correct?

Yes Pollo, the axles are out of an M35 2.5ton military truck "duce and a half". The chunks in the front and rear are exactly the same, the flange in front of the front axle will be used to hold the caliper for the disc brakes. They have become very popular for mud trucks.

I had "military truck" in my original reply but I edited it before hitting submit. How large are the tires?

Here is what happened to me yesterday:

I got stuck in muddy water and my rear main seal is leaking. I'm not going back there until I get my Super Swamper TSL SX.

Teeter didn't fare so well either, he had to manually winch his Jeep on the trailer with ratchet straps.
