I do have some, but my photo hosting site is having problems and I just tried to drop a CD-ROM into my laptop that has photos and it has a big crack in it. I can get some later.

This is the only one I have at the moment. Factory 6 lug parts. the rims are 4" backspace, 9" wide with the beadlock, tires are 36/13.50/15.

Sorry about the 3.5" measurement, it probably is 4" difference in the shafts. I didn't have any info. with me at work when I posted.

Just put some Hummer rims on it, 7 inches of backspacing will solve your problems. Ha, I know, I know..... still have spring problems.

Iron, being just up the 81 from you...would we EVAH get away w/this much tire sticking out? Hell, in Pa...you'll get Rodney King'd for "Turbo Mufflers"! Fart pipes and Boom Boom music is OK though(?)

The laws in Pa. are very strict about tires sticking out from the wheel wells and I really don't want to add massive flares to cover the tires or run wheels with tons of backspacing.

**** If I have to go through the trouble of outboarding both hangers, cutting the long side tube and axle I might as well just get a HP Dana 44 center section from a Ford and re-tube it. ****

Anyone have any thoughts on this instead of the Chevy axle? I'm thinking that would be a better way to go.
To get to that width, starting with the Chevy front, you have to narrow both sides. I can't say on a HP Ford, I've never done one...I only offer advice on what I have done before.

'81 Scrambler w/ FI 360 AMC, 33x12.50 BFG M/T's, 5" of lift, ARB'd Dana 44's F & R, Dana 300 clocked & twin sticked w/4:1, Warn XD9000i, etc...

So for all the axle customizing, why not outboard the springs? You are only moving them out by 1-2 inches and if you go with NT Waggy front, you are still 5" (ish) wider than a WT CJ, you shouldn't have rubbing issues. OR You could go with a Scout front 44 and then all you have to do is turn the Cs to correct caster.

With a great Jeep comes an empty wallet.

I gathered this from several places over several years. I just put the data in a file called D44 axle shaft lengths. I did not save any link references.
