Scout II D44 in rear & CJ D30 Wide-trac Front?

Would it look funny to run a CJ Widetrac Dana 30 in the front and a Scout II Dana 44 in the rear on a CJ-5? I was planning on running the wide Dana 30 with a Scout 800 Powerlok Dana 44 in the rear, both of which I already have, but that Dana 44 is 19-spline & tapered.
I know the Scout II's are wider than the 800's, so how awkward would that look? Should I hold out to look for a 30 spline D44 from a 69+ Scout, or go with an easier to find but even wider Scout II D44 rear? I'll probably be running 33x12.50's or 33x9.50's after I get rid of theses 31x10.50's.

Thanks

theres only about a 3" difference between the scoutII axles and the widetrac cj, so the answer is.... get the 30 spline d-44 and grab the front too while you're at it...

The 30 spline is 100% stronegr than the 19 spline as well, not to mention the axles. Buy hey, it's free, so why not run it until it explodes! Just out of curiosity, why swap it in, the AMC20 is much stronger than the 19 spline D44.

I swapped my narrow track axles for a dana 30 widetrac and a wagoneer rear. This was mostly since I had a 70 wagonner axle that my brother gave me when he upgraded his axles. It was also 5 on 5 1/2 so that made it an easy swap. It's a 30 spline dana 44.

Re: Scout II D44 in rear & CJ D30 Wide-trac Front?

I wanted to run the 19-spline D44 because I already have 4.27 gears to run in that as well as the D30 up front, and the D44 has Powerlok. My AMC 20 only has 3.54 and no traction. I don't want to pay for solid axles and gears for the AMC20, and brake wise, I want to put new brakes on a 30-spline D44 that's worth keeping. Otherwise, I would have run the 19-spline till it blew (never broken anything on the trail yet, and it could be interesting).

Thanks, I'll see what kind of deals I can get on a Scout II rear D44.
