It depends on how much you cut off.

That's about right. It'll gain an inch if you convert it to 5 on 5.5" lug pattern.

The waggy front D44 axle is 61.5" WMS to WMS before you cut it.

Is that using the F-150 outers, or something different? I will be doing this to my waggy 44, but mine will be cut for my '74 CJ-5.

Yes, using the Ford hub/rotors adds 1" to the overall width, whatever it that width is on a Waggy or Chevy 6 lug 44.

I ended up cutting my 79 waggy down about 4-1/4" and after ford hubs and rotors it ended up at 57-5/8" Wms-Wms.
Hope that helps
