\'77 Power Wagon as a donor truck

I am about to buy, for 100.00, a 77 Dodge Power wagon extended cab, 440, 4x4, auto tranny. Anyone got any info on the axles or tranny/x-case on this truck? The idea is to fit the drivetrain from the dodge into my 88YJ. In a perfect world, this will all work. But we all know that this isn't a perfect world so I need some help, thanks a lot!

I think I replied to you in the Dodge forum.

Re: \'77 Power Wagon as a donor truck

Yes you did, thank you. Why would this be a bad choice? I'm just thinking that the axles have to be pretty good sized to stand up to a 440. I read at some replacement parts site for the power wagons that they might have came with a D70 in the rear, forgot what was the front...D60, maybe. How could I tell?

OK, well I was buying the truck from a guy in my unit and it has been sitting on base in the same spot since we deployed to iraq last year. So, today we go into work and the truck had been towed. Kind of a bummer but it was probably meant to be this way. Oh well...thanks anyway
