Wide/Narrow track CJ axle in \'81?

I was reading this months issue of 4Wheel & Off-Road, an article about AMC20 axle shaft upgrades (on page 130) they say "Most people agree that Jeep CJs started using wide axles in '81 models and that all Scramblers had wide axles."

anyway i have a '81 Scrambler with narrow track axles, they look like they came factory. do any other CJ-8s out there have narrow track axles?

Re: Wide/Narrow track CJ axle in \'81?

I had a 1981 Scrambler myself and it to had narrow track axles. Jeep started using the wide track axles in 1982, at least everything that I have been told and seen is that way. I have had two of each year makes and neither 81 had the wide tracks and both the 82's did.
My two cents.

I don't think anyone "Agrees that wide tracks started in '81". My CJ is an '83 but I looked at an '81 scrambler about a year ago (should have bought it) and it had narrow axles. It was for sale by the original owner!

I think wide axles started in 82. My 81 CJ-7 has the narrow track.
