Re: 78 Cherokee D44\'s swap on CJ
Ok I thought that tc was the offset one, my bad. Anyway, I looked into doing those axles on my cj, but the person doing my fabricating kinda, not really, talked me out of it. He said it was perfectly doable and would be a good swap, I just wasnt willing to spend the extra money for him to do all the custom fab work. Its just a matter of bracing the spring hangers enough, I believe. He said that he has done it before. He did say you would lose a little articulation because of the springs being placed wider than normal, but that it wouldnt be drastic. If you want to call him, his name is Jeff Beach and his number is 801-233-0389. He is super knowlegeable and can answer any question for you, he custom builds all kinds of jeep stuff.
Also remember you will need six lug wheels unless you got one of the few five luggers that are out there. Good Luck
