Axles? Nee help!
I have just purchased my first every scout II. It is a 1973 Scout II. I picked it up for $500. Well here is my question. Two owners before me swaped out the running gear with a 1986 chevy blazer's. The scout now has a 350 motor with an automatic transmission w/203 transfer case. Along with the axles. The front is one of those all time four wheel drive ones and the rear is a 10 bolt. Currently i am installing a SM465 transmission w/205 transfer case. As for the axles, I would like get some feedback as to which would be the best to run. One of my buddy's has a set of dana 44's front and rear that I could run. Or I also have a 1 ton dana 60 front that I am highly swaying towards due to the strength. If i am to run the dana 60 my plans are to then run a 14 bolt rear with it. My plans are, when finished building the scout, to do some moderate to challenging four wheeling. I hope to run lockers front and rear. Any advise would be great. Thank you for your time.
