I'm going with a currie 9+ heavy duty housing for a early bronco
(got it covered)
but if one where to go with a original Early bronco 9 inch, the 76'-77' are heavy duty housings and have the big bearing ends.

I doubled checked. You're right about the 76-77.

Based on what I remember from a long long time ago, early bronco 9" had weak housings (most 9" axle require at least a truss anyway which is probably why you're going after market) and small bearing ends. I don't remember the years of which had what, I just know it was the majority. Regardless, my reason for posting was to offer some insight incase there might have been something you overlooked, which is usually the point of these threads. Not to get into an "I know more than you about 9" axles" post swap.

Good luck with your build. Looks good so far.

You like the rest of us and too busy to get any work done on the Jeep? Just thought I'd check on you.

Yes, work and my 2 small boys take up most of my time.
just waiting patiently for you to re engineer that rear shackle hanger I sent you for the 1 -1/4 bushing. After that I will call up alcan and order some springs.
I guess the hardest part of all this is i keep second guessing myself and changing my mind on what i want to do with this build.
Now, I'm maybe thinking that I should have set that front axle up for SOA instead of SUA.
I'm sure SUA will be just fine for what i want.

I do allot of that second guessing too. I have just convinced myself to go ahead and do what I want. Then if it doesn't suit me I'll change it later.

PM sent on the hangers.

I think I made up my mind to change and re work the front axle for a SOA lift.
it's all painted and set up for SUA and then i go and change my mind.

help!
re assure me that i am doing the right thing by changing it to SOA
or give me a reason to keep it SUA.

The RE 1.5" SOA springs have arrived, along with some new m.o.r.e. greasable shackles and bushings.
Now I just have to drill the 1.5" hole in my frame for the front shackle to go through for the SRS.
I will try and get this done this weekend and get some pictures up.
I also have all the spring perches and u-bolts i need to mount my axles.
All I need now is some wheels and tires to get this thing in to a roller.
I figure i will then put the body back on to get an idea of how this thing will sit.
And then make some decisions.
