I put a 1980 Scout Dana 44 front under my 86 CJ7 had it cut down 3 5/8"s to CJ7 wide track width. same bolt pattern as a CJ 5 on 5 1/2. used my CJ's brakes and old school 6 bolt hubs. I had the knuckles clocked 10 degrees
I have a 4" lift. I had a chromemolly shaft cut for the long side. It has the bigger Ujoints found in the later YJ Dana 30's ,CJ Dana 30's had the small ujoints.
The waggy tubes are thicker then the Scouts, but the Scout dana 44's are thicker then Rubicon Dana 44s.
