ford 9.75'' in a WJ?
alright, so I have been looking around for a while for an axle to start a long build on and swap into the back of the WJ. ultimately I will be doing both once i retire it from DD duty but I am starting with the rear. My goal is to ultimately run 36 or 37's. I was also looking to do something a little out of the box. I recently cam across a Ford 9.75'' out of an '01 F-150. It has disk brakes and the guy only wants $150 for it. it has 34 spline, 1.705'' shafts, a 9.75 ring diameter (same as a 60) and larger diameter tubes and higher torque rating. Its also 65'' wms to wms. I can get alloy shafts, an ARB and go as low as 5.13 gears. Basically the only down side I see is that its a c-clip. This will be my first swap and will take quite a while, mostly due to funds but I just wanted to get some input from more experienced guys and what they thought about it. Heard any positives or negatives? Also, I run clayton long arms so I would probably run his universal 4 link truss for the uppers....all opinions welcome
