Re: Why are front & rear axles different widths
Tim, the rear axles on most full size 4x4's are a little narrower than the front to help on the turning radius and tracking. Most the ones that I have seen will be a few inches shorter than the front. The new project that I am building is going to be full width so the rear on this one won't be as wide as the front either. I am going with either a 60 rear or 14 bolt and a 44 front.
