Pics of CJ7 w/Waggie D44s uncut.....

Went to the Jeep Jamboree this past weekend at the YO Ranch. I took some pics of this CJ7 with full width G. Wagoneer axles. I am thinking about doing this on my 82 Scrambler. Those are 35x12.5 BFG Mud Terrains.

Re: Pics of CJ7 w/Waggie D44s uncut.....

This is the current project on my 76 Cj. Full width G waggie D44's. Looks great. I was wondering what it was going to look like.

I think it looks cool also. You could probably even get those tires under some 6-7" flares. I have more pics of the spring hanger relocation and his SOA setup.

Please send the pics. I can use them as a guide when I do mine. It would be appreciated

Re: Pics of CJ7 w/Waggie D44s uncut.....

Hate to point this out but, those arn't g-waggie axles. Maybe just waggie axles. The g-waggie front is driver's side drop and that is passenger side.

Hate to be picky, but I would hate it if someone just bought, sight unseen, some g-waggie axles for their CJ. G-waggie's are great swap material for YJ's though.

What ever they are, they look great. I like the full size axles on any Jeep. Cuts down on mobility and the ability to squeze between stuff, but it is more stable.

Re: Pics of CJ7 w/Waggie D44s uncut.....

Thanks for the help Tom, Great pics, I'd also like the pictures of the soa mounts... havent decided how to mount the springs on the m38 frame... if I put the 74ish cherokee axles on. Any ideas? SOA would be neat, if I mounted the rear springs outboard the axle. What type of springs would be best? Cherokee springs are about 54 inches in rear, 52 or so in front, I think cj7 springs are about 4 inches shorter? By the way the widths of the cherokee axles are about 72-73 inches with the 33x12.50s on. Maybe I could get some wheels that are inset in? Hopefully this project will come together.

Thanks,
Andy

Re: Pics of CJ7 w/Waggie D44s uncut.....

Those are definitely Grand Wagoneer axles. G. Wagoneers made before 1980 had passenger side drop. So you are partially correct. G. Wagoneer axles are a great swap for both YJs and CJs, you just have to make sure you get the right year for your vehicle. I will make a page on my website with the pics and post the address later.

Thanks,
Tom

Re: Pics of CJ7 w/Waggie D44s uncut.....

Yeah, Ive been considering that conversion for my 82 Scrambler as well. That does look sharp. Well I guess I'll get some use out of the ones I just put on for a while til I can afford something else. How was the Jambo, I wanted to be there, but damn they ar expensive, charging that much per person is a little steep for me since I'm trying to get some upgrade done to the Jeep. If ya got any pics lets see them, I'm interested in seeing what the YO looks like.
