I do not know the exact widths off hand but I believe that that it is like 51 and 58 inches. I could be totally wrong so someone else speak up.
As for the CJ5, if you have the original axles in it they are narrowtrack. Jeep never sold the CJ5 with the widetrack axles. HTH

Those are good numbers for the front axle. The rears will be 50.5" narrow and 53.5" for wide.

What HE said, Scott.

Either way, widetracs are 3" wider overall (1.5" either side).

And, yes, the rear axles are narrower than the fronts.

Hey, Scott, you don't happen to need any widetracs, do you?

(I just happen to have a pair for sale!, LOL!)

Just kidding, I know you are short on cash
