to be quite honest the extra 3 inches of width isnt gonna make a big change in stability. ive already been thru the game of trying to keep a d30 alive its just not worth it, if your goal is to not feel so tippy out at disney go full width axles, i did and i wouldnt ever go back to stock axles.

depends on what you like to do,

if you like rock crawling, and beating the jeep like it owes you money
the id go d60s f/r

if you like just trail riding and now have to worry bout breaking axles go waggy 44s f/r

or d44 front 14bolt rear (shaved of corse)

it really depends on what you do with it.
is it a daily driver?
trail rig only?

It's not a dd, but I am building it as something that I can hop in and cruise to town. And as something that is trail capable. Won't be wheeling it every weekend. Want something that is good on the highway and decent on the trails.

I'd go with waggy 44's then, or a 44 front and 8.8 rear so you get disc brakes all the way around.

Talk to Kenneth at KORE in Broken Arrow...he can give you lots of ideas and he does fantastic work.

1985 CJ7 Project
Phase One : 5.3L Vortec/4L60E, Moser axles for AMC20, Twin Stick'd Dana300 - Completed
Phase Two: Bedliner, Rollcage, Seats, BESRK Rear Bumper w/ tire swing, Soft Top, and a few other goodies - Mostly Complete
Phase Three: Waggy 44 front, Scout D44 Rear, 4.56's, ARB's (F/R) SOA with YJ Springs, 35x12.50x15 BFG MT - Not Even Close to beginning

Also a mostly rust-free 1970 Scout 800A That I'll get to start working on someday...

The AMC20 is a strong rearend if you build it, upgrading to a dana 44 is not upgrading, more or less sidegrading. I do have some waggy front and rears, the only bad thing is the front is a driverside drop. not sure of the gear ratio tho. I am going to send you a PM, give me a call, I have been writing a couple of Ideas down on building a good trail and dd jeep. Just going to run them by you, plus I need some more jeep buddies around to go to Disney.

the amc 20 is a strong axle for small tires, the biggest problem for those axles is the 2 piece axle shafts you upgrade to 1 piece shafts and your golden.


its crazy how only the tulsa crowd is in here talking besides kicking prop but you use to live here so you still count
