1988 Wagoneer D44 axles on my TJ

I have the oppurtunity to get some Waggy D44's for cheap and was wondering what are the advantages/disadvantages of adapting these axles to fit on my 1998 TJ?

Too wide and too much work.

I need some door surrounds. PM me if you know where I can get some used ones for a decent price.

What are you talking about? They are the same width as his stock axles (might be .5" - 1" wider or narrower - mine are .5" wider than stock). They are great axles to swap in. Yes they have their limits, but are still a great choice. And as stated above, the same things are required to put them in your TJ as any axle swap. Grind, clean, prep, measure, measure, measure, weld, paint, install.

they are 6-lug axles, you'll need new wheels too.

read here:
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f57/f...cation-777253/
According to that they are narrow track axles & a drivers side drop front. WMS: WMS

Looks like the front is fine (60.5"), rear will be too narrow (58.5").

From what I'm told they are drivers drop, 3:53, high pinion front, Low Pinion rear, Rear brakes and slightly wider than 60"... any forsee-able issues?

Sorry, got that backwards... here is what it says on craigslist:

Pair of D44's HP Rear LP Front (rear is LSD 90% sure of this, can pull the cover if you really want to know) out of an 88 Waggy- $200 for the pair
Parting out 1989 Jeep Wrangler

Waggy's never came with a high pinion rear axle. they will both be LP.

after much number crunching it's really coming down to whether I should just by some bolt on rubicon axles and be done with it.... I think that's what I will do...
