im a tj driver but today an old guy that lives by the fire house came over and gave a rear axle shaft. told me he didnt think it would fit on my jeep but if i knew anybody with a cj i might be able to sell it to them and make some $. its brand new but was sitting on his garage shelf so it has surface rust. figured it would clean up nice with some rust cleaner or wire brush. wanna make sure it does indeed fit a cj and i figured one of you might have an old one or spare that u can compare the measurements to and let me know.
he told me this much
-77 cj rear passenger side axle shaft
-paid like $200 something for it
measurements are as follows:
#1- 29 and 3/16 inches
#2- 23 and 1/4 inches
#3- 6 and 15/16 inches
#4- 1 and 5/8 inches
#5- 7/8 inches (diameter of shaft)
#6- 1 and 3/16 inches (diameter of shaft)
what is it worth to any of you who could use it? i will prolly try and clean it up before next jeep club meeting and see if any of the cj guys wanna buy it but i'd like to know what a good/fair price is. i know im not gunna get rich off it, its a 30 year old part, but what do you think? if some1 gets me some good intel there might be some free decals/custom stickers coming to u in the mail...
i know gearing and what rearend will prolly make a difference but if it helps any, the #6 end has 29 spindles i believe, and the spindles on the opposite side count 46 i think.
