Re: Axle swap questions.
my sugguestion is go out and find a junk scout or wagoneer cheep. get the whole thing. i have bougt a scout for $250 and a buddy bought a wagoneer for $275 so they are out there. what i do is go out and drive around the country and look. you will see all sorts of stuff behind barns, in the weeds, in back yards, etc. this is where you find your best deals. heck i have my eye on 2 scouts and 1 early bronco right now. anyway get one of these yank the axles and put the rest up for sale. i've done this and gotten more than i paid for the whole thing. another good reason is you'll have all the u-bolts, plates, etc. that you'll need. just my op. by the way make sure if you get a scout make sure it has a dana 44 front earlier years didn't.
i'm glad to see that you have decided to go with the t-18!
