I'm looking to swap waggie axles in to my CJ7. I have a detroit locker in my AMC 20 now and I want to keep it. I was wondering if I can find a waggie with a AMC 20 HD and a Dana 44 front. Is this a common configuration and what years came like that.
78 CJ7 304V8,TH400,Dana 300 Twin stick,Custom HD-WT AMC20 detroit locker 4:10,D30 ez-locker 4:10,Built NOT Bought.
1980 and newer, the problem is the front axle's differential is on teh drivers side.
so youll need a rear from a 80 or newer wagoneer, and a front from a 75-79 wagoneer ( passenger side front diff), if you get 1976 front Dana 44 it already has flat topped knuckles.
or you could swap your transfercase out to the driverside output ( ala YJ) but..the dana 300 is better.
too small to be seen, and too big to control, and treated like a walking bomb...
