how to narrow a rockwell axle
well last week i dug into my rockwells so i can narrow them down. i will cut 7.5" off the long side tube and re-weld it so i can run a short side axle shaft on bolth side's. i did this on my chepo harbor frieght band saw, but after getting it level it cut the ends perfect. i got one cut done and had to leave, so heres were i am now.
i was going to build a JIG to get the tubes re-centered but i will just use inserts and flat stock welded to the corners to line it. should be damm close, close enough for a rockwell. this is what i did when i reparied crane section, worked for them.
so heres some pic's for now and this weekend i will have more.
1993 YJ 4.0 60 Front, Rear steer 60, bolth spooled, 5.38's, 700r/241 39.5 iroks and beating it like it owes me money.
And on the 8th day, God created the 14 bolt...
