I'm running waggy 44's front and rear with 5.38s Detroit rear and true trac front, on 37" tires. Works great, with moser shafts.

But I have ripped teeth of my rear pinion twice but I think it was due to the gear brand.


YES My old jeep is RUNNING A 2.4L TURBO MOTOR If you want to know

most guys have just drilled their 8.8 rotors for the new pattern. I have also heard that some F-150 rotors were 5x5.5 - you can probably pull one of your 8.8 rotors and take a measuring tape and some calipers with you to the parts store to see if any of the F-150 rotors are the same.

for 5 on 5 1/2 you will need chevy small bearing spindles and Ford hub/rotors.

Did that answer your question? I'm not exactly sure what you were asking.

You could keep the 6 lug waggy and get custom 6 lug 8.8 shafts from Dutchman if you prefer.

wow thanks guys for the replies.

i know about thick gears now. i honestly never heard of them before last week.

i am trying to decide what lug pattern to go with. i currently am have 5/4.5 front and rear.

i am ok with running the 6 lug up front ( only thing i need are two cragars) to save money then switching at a later date. see my tires are practicalyl brand new and they are 15s so i need a 15 rim. alot that i am finding ( used/ factory rims) are bigger

my build is costing me alor more then i expected. and those spindles and hubs are expensive. there is a conversion kit on ebay ( complete) for like 350. i dont find that to be a deal... do you guys?

i picked up a waggoneer 44 for 200$ complete. with lock outs and locker. i dropped it opp at the shop to get brackets done and the guy and i were takling about castor. i told him that i needed more for my jeep and i asked him to cut off the inner C's and weld them with some angle so when i went pos. castor i didnt throw the pinion into the dirt.. well he coaxed me into going high pinion. there are alot of benifits for this i said F it. he said that it has more castor stock then the LP. and he "had them in stock" i think it will be like 350 for the housing and shortening. so that is where i stand. supposed to pick it up friday
