lurker unveiled

I've been lurking about for a while, finally had to register... I have 46 cj2a with a pto winch... 31" tires, wore out suspension, rust bucket, hunk o junk... Has anyone here ever used Dana 44's from a wagoneer on one of these without cutting them? I have a 74?75 4" lifted waggie with D44's, model 20 tcase, t18 tranny and non running 360 engine...with 33 inch tires. I was considering swapping the whole deal to an old m38 frame I have, lengthening the wheelbase 6-8" and making a trail buggy. I have spare tubs... and can get a running amc if I need. How do I tell if the t-18 has a granny gear? Its stamped T-18-18 on the side. Has anyone ever tried this or am I insane? All the measurements seem to work... I'd be happy using farm implement pto shafts- It doesnt have to be 100% street legal or look great- just functional. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: lurker unveiled

Welcome......

You can find most of the info you are looking for at jeeptech.com. All of the things you suggested sound do-able. I have seen a CJ-7 with uncut Wagoneer D44s, I will post a pic if I can find one. If your tub is the same width as a CJ7 your tires will stick out atleast 5-6"s.

Later,
Tom

Here is a pic of a CJ7 with uncut Wagoneer D44s. This CJ has 35x12.5 BFG Mud Terrain tires.
