If I can't find a dana 44 the same width I am now, then that will be my next option. I will look for a Chevy 3/4 ton Dana 44 and a Ford 9" or Dana 60 for the rear. If I could find a complete donor driveline/truck/Blazer then I'd look at getting that. I have disc brakes on my front now. I would just like the security of a Dana 44 up front with my current tires. As it stands it looks like I'll be shopping for a complete set of axles. I like the Scout idea just not sure how involved it is to rotate the knuckles and then address the steering. I've read people having trouble getting the steering figured out. But since it's a trail rig I guess I could just move the perches and not worry about the castor. Thanks to all who have shared info.

The 1980 Scout D44 front had 3 of caster, but that's not really enough and it still has the same issues as the rest of the Scout fronts that would need to be dealt with.
This is how NAXJA Midwest Chapter elected officials like to treat their resident users and former multi-year supporters.
