Would axles for 59 fc150 work for my cj5

Found a 59 fc 150 forsake on craigslist. Body's not great at all but it's only $500. Figured if the axles would work it might be worth buying and then just selling the rest.

Gosh, if ever there was a vehicle I'd want MORE than a CJ, it would be an FC! That's the Holy Grail for me! How cool would it be to have one of those!

This on doesn't have the tittle but I'm really just looking for the axles. This one seems pretty far gone. No interior. The back is just 2x4s pretty much nothing but drivetrain and half the body

Being a 59 I wouldn't think the axles would be all that desirable. Closed knuckle front and coarse spline rear axles.

What you have now is probably stronger, disc brake in the front and easier to find parts for.

In addition to what 78FordF150 mentioned the rear axle would have an offset differential as those used the same Dana 18 tcase that CJs of that era used.


They aren't desirable at all. The front is a Dana 25 and the rear is probably a 10 spline Dana 44.


I wish that FC was closer to me!
