First off - this is a kick butt thread. Secondly, I think he probably started with the narrow waggy.

But, you can use a wide waggy IF you want to go about 4" total wider. Same process but the end result will be an extra 2" per side. This is my best understanding so far. I have a 74 J10 axle which is a wide axle that I may be hacking shortly.

The big questions for me come down to putting the steering back together and if I have to move the steering box etc...

It was a narrow track waggy 44, should put me at 58" wms-wms with the ford 5x5.5 hubs & rotors swap.
I am going to pair that with the early bronco 9" rear that is 58" as well.

I am moving my steering box forward with a m.o.r.e HD bracket, but thats also due to me doing a shackle reversal at the same time.
I got the 44 all painted up and I am waiting on parts to put it back together.
I sent the right side flat top knuckle to parts mike to be machined and drilled for high steer.
I also sent the long side shaft off to moser to be cut down 4" and replined.
got some small bearing spindles off ebay that i am waiting for and just have to gather seals and bearings.
hurry up and wait is the name of the game now.

That sounds cool. Are you using the jeep drag link and such or something else?
I cant make my mind up if I should do the crossover steer or high steer or use the J10 setup.....

As I recall my wide track Waggy 44 measured 65" WMS-WMS when we put a tape on it.

Don't Use a Wagoneer Front Axle - Jeep Scrambler Forums & Discussions
my drag link will be high steer, using the flat top knuckle
http://www.partsmike.com/store/store.php?crn=219&rn=1377&action=show_detail

This D44 build has taken some time, I pretty much have all parts, seals, 4.56 ring and pinion, and bearings now.
I have now decided, that I only want to build this axle once.
So, instead of just throwing in the new gears in a open carrier. I
Think I will wait and see if I can find a detroit truetrac for a good deal for it.

But, Damn guy's! this axle is looking Sexy!!!!
Every thing all painted up!!
I will get some pics of it up tomorrow.
It seems the final width of it ended up to be 57 5/8 " WMS - WMS

Real close to the 58" rear Early Bronco 9" thats going to be build next.
going with a
-currie 9+ heavy duty housing
-moser shafts
-True HI9 Center
-Disk brake conversion.

Then we will be ordering up some Alcan custom Springs.
And see if we can't get this into a roller.
Piece Fella's, Take care, and Jeep on!!!

Axle looks good. You might be better off going with a Full width 9" and cutting it down. The early bronco housings are weaker and small bearing. Just incase you haven't covered that in your research already.
