Jeep axles?

Anyone put Jeep axles on a Samurai or know of any links?

I want something bigger, but not too big for the front........that doesn't have Birfields so Toyota is out. I was thinking Dana 30 would be perfect for my needs. Also in the rear I was thinking maybe an off-set AMC Model 20 might work.....guess I'll have to get around to measuring that one out.

Any other ideas?

Re: Jeep axles?

I have early jeep axles in my samurai(65) Dana 44 offset like sami and front
dana 27, only problem they are too narrow and I have to build 1" spacers. Now
I have seen other guys running the Dana diffs from 72-75 cj5 that are couple
inches wider, but the rear dana 44 is center. I used early axles due to the
lower gearing, 5.38s and they only cost me $200.

Re: Jeep axles?

I have a set of jeep axles from a 67 CJ; the rear is a D44 that is offset and the front is a D27 or 30 (with drum brakes). These are
"narrow track" and they are about an inch narrower than the Zuk axles. If you're interested I'll let you have them for $100 if you come get them;
I'm located in Columbus, Georgia. At that price you would have enough money left over to get spacers, gears and lockers ))

Re: Jeep axles?

I'm getting some Dana 44'S off a Jeep Waggnner (SP?) The ones that are in the 70's are the ones to get. They are off-set to the pass. side diff. and are lots wider. Some people just swap the axles to the Zuk and some cut them down so they are about 2-3" wider than stock Zuki axles. Its what you want and what kind if 4 wheeling you do. I know I've seen a Samurai with Dana 44's on a web-page, the only one I can think of is on Hope it helps out.
