Watzwith \'75 waggy no quadratrac

Well, found my front axle - it is attached to an entire Wagoneer - '75 with lockout hubs - no quadratrac - running 360 engine - anyway - talked to the guy on the phone - he didn't know off-hand so here is my question:

Would this have the off-set rear diff like the Quadratrac waggies have - or a centered one since it has the D20 x-fer case (from what I've read)?

I did a search on ifsja site & off-road.com fsj site & didn't come up with an answer. So I thought I'd ask you guys.

Re: Watzwith \'75 waggy no quadratrac

Mel,
My brother had a 75 Waggie that had the TH-400/Dana 20 setup. I don't remember if it had a offset rear or not but I would think that it didn't since it wasn't a QuadraTrac.
I would think that you could use everything that is under the jeep, motor, tranny, transfer, front and rearend.
I have been trying to find one of these for a while now with no luck. Wish I could find one for cheap!!

Re: Watzwith \'75 waggy no quadratrac

That's what I was thinking -that it was the Quadratrac that would make it off-set. BTW - $250 - I think thats a pretty good deal - I'll be really psyched if I can use the front & back - although earlier posts made me think I should get a HD20 anyway.

Re: Watzwith \'75 waggy no quadratrac

Think about it this way, with it already having the 5 on5 1/2" wheel pattern you wounld't have to change wheels or anything.
With the HD 20 you would have to change your wheels to the 6 hole Chevy pattern.
If you can get the whole thing for $250 then I would get it for sure. If you are interested in selling the tranny and transfer case out of that waggie please let me know because I would be very interested in it.

It has the 5 on 5 1/2" pattern - I did not know that! - when did they change to the 6 bolt - also - I ASSume that the front is disk brakes - anyone know if the rear is 11" drum brakes.

It will probably have disc front and 11" rear drums. They didn't switch to 6 lug until 76. That is when they stopped offering the TH-400/D-20 setup as well I think.

Mel,
It has the centered diff it it's the Dana 20 t-case. The switch to six lugs was made in '74, not '76 as previously mentioned. I have a set of '75 waggie axles and they are indeed six lug. The '75 factory service manual also shows them as six lug.

Re: Watzwith \'75 waggy no quadratrac

The quadratrac rear axle is indeed offset as the consensus is. But the non quadratrac rear axle is also slightly offset to clear the gas tank. I have a 70 non offset and a 77-79 offset and there is about a 2 1/2" difference in the offset.

Re: Watzwith \'75 waggy no quadratrac

I have a 74 or 75 cherokee 4 door- I am not sure about the year, and it is at someone else's property right now. But its a 6 lug, d44 front and rear, not real sure about the engine right now(thinking its a 360) t-18(stamped t-18-18 on the side of the case) dana 20(almost positive) and I am SURE that the rear axle is offset to the right about 5.5-6". While we're talking about waggies, is there a way to tell if the t-18 is a 6.3 to 1 or a 4 to 1 first gear without taking it out? This jeep is going to be a donor for a future low buck trail rig-everything that works will be put on an m38 frame with a cj2a body.
