Re: What I should I do about AXELS? What would you do
I am also running the AMC20/Dana30 combo in my CJ at the time and have been wondering the same things. I have a 258/T18 now, but I have a 360 laying around that I figure I might as well slap in the CJ, why not. That 360 is in a cherokee, which has a dana 44 front, and a AMC20 HD in the rear. I thought about swapping the rear axle into the CJ, because it has 1 piece shafts and stronger housings, then finding a waggy 44 to match the bolt pattern. But that is going to cost mucho $$. (cutting axles, new 44, new wheels). I would have a pretty strong set up.
I think I am going to put 1 piece shafts in the 20, maybe truss it, and live with it.
What about the 30? How strong is it? I think that I would break something being an idiot and doing something stupid, like bun outs on pavement. I dont do alot of hard core rock crawlin' so I dont see the 30 being a prob. WHat do you all think?
