Re: Driver Side Axle? WHAT DO I GET
Is this going under your YJ?
i`m doing the same / similar swap of axles now too..
For the front end you want to look for a 1978/79 Ford RC D60.. It`s 8 lug like your 14bolt, and I believe it's 69 3/4 long Full Width.
If you get a newer than 79 you have to either shorten the long side so the spring mounts line up with your YJ or you have to outboard your springs...
For the 78/79 expect to pay $1,000 to $1,500 depending on condition/lockouts etc.. for the 79+ You can get them for ~$900 to $1200 depending on the same thing..
Did you get the Full Width 14bolt or the shorter C&C version??
I assume you will be running atleast 38" tires with this setup correct...??
You can always go custom frontend but they are $$$...
