length of a scout d44 and a jeep wagoneer d44?

Hey all,

I am looking for the length of a wagoneer d44 front compared to a scout d44 that I have in the rear of my cj. Any help would be great. I found a wagoneer d44 front and would like to know the difference in length.

my buddies waggy front was about 2" wider than his rear scout.. converting it to 5 on 5 1/2 makes it about an inch wider than stock..

My waggie front was 61.25" wms to wms and my scout rear is 58.5" wms to wms. That keeps the ratio of front to rear widths about the same (1/8" difference) as my narrow track CJ-7. It was as close to stock as I could find but with the extra width that I wanted.

I don't think you'll ever notice the difference visualy.

Just to point out. The early Waggys (Through about '79) came from the factory with a rear that was 1-2" narrower track than the front. Which meant the rear is the same width as the Scout. This was not uncommon. I think some of the Fords were that way too.

FWIW.
I don't mind a rear a little narrower than the front. If the front fits between an obstacle then the rear should too. The other way around, you might hang a rear.

Even all CJ's were narrower in the rear. Up until '82 the rear was 2.5" narrower than the front. That is why I went the waggie/scout route where the rear was 2.75" narrower than the front. The extra 1/8" on either side is hardly noticable.
