Re: WAGONEER AXLES? WOULD THESE WORK O.K.?

Crawling up out of my hole...

Hey Bill,

If i recall correctly, the NON-Q-trac wagoneer front axles all had the diff on the drivers(left) side. Same as the CJ/YJ's. Wrong side for a stock zuk t-case...

Also, if i recall correctly, ALL yota Land Cruisers, including FJ40,FJ45,FJ55,FJ60,FJ80 have front and rear axles offset to the passenger(right) side. The yota hilux/mini truck axles have a centered rear and passenger(right) offset front.

Anyone, please correct me if i'm wrong...

What we need is a post with FACTS!!! regarding offset, and exact width measurments for the d44 and yota axle options.
I have exact measurements for the FJ60 & wide trac waggy q-trac axles, but not here at work. I have a set of each of these at home. In my opinion, the wide trac q-trac axles are TOO wide. IIRC like 65"-67" at wms.

In my opinion, (other than custom built dynatracs or curries) the FJ60 and Narrow trac waggy axles are the best choices for under a zuk. Both are a good compromise of extra width for stability, and to keep larger tires off the springs, and at the same time not too wide for tight trails. The FJ60 are ~ 58" at wms, the NARROW trac waggy , q-trac d44 axles are also ~ 58" at wms.

I will try to post some exact measurements from home...

Re: WAGONEER AXLES? WOULD THESE WORK O.K.?

if it had a amc 20 rear it had a d/side pumpkin on the front d44. sorry but unless you are swapping your x-case too...no deal.

besides the q-track version is the one to have and they usually are not hard to find or cost that much$$$ when you do. skip those and get the ones froma a q-track wag.

Re: WAGONEER AXLES? WOULD THESE WORK O.K.?

uhhh dooh ooghh. these have a passenger side front diff and the waggy 20 is plenty strong as it has 1 piece axles. so please give advice based on this. my post should have been how well does a centered rear work for people that are using it with massive articulation?????? as far as the cruiser goes, several of the older ones were mix and max just like jeeps and did have a centered rear with an extreme angle on the rear driveshaft from the factory. my first 4x4 was a cruiser and i've seen several this way. i usually beleive what i'm told unless my eyes tell a different story. anyways, will a centered diff work well with an offset t-case and about 26" long rear drivshaft??? lemme know. thanks again.

Re: WAGONEER AXLES? WOULD THESE WORK O.K.?

thats whay i am running in my zook a centered diff in the rear. but i had to finally replace the zook drive shaft because it just doesn't have enough angle to work with. it will be fine on your buggy. but if i were you i would go with the land cruiser axles. if that guy will sell them cheap enough. mike

Re: WAGONEER AXLES? WOULD THESE WORK O.K.?

changed my mind but same scenario, gonna use blazer axles dana 44 front and 12 bolt rear. $200 bucks already welded. same amount of work and same brakes as waggy's + they are even wider, i may never roll again. at least sideways. thanks mike. i just hate birfields

Re: WAGONEER AXLES? WOULD THESE WORK O.K.?

A guy in my club has that exact set up and nearly doubled his flex, or so it appears. The extra length give his axle less angle and I saw him out flex a 1/4 rear and missing links with just stock spring and missing links front and rear. Very cool setup.

Not right now but I can give you his # and you can call him. He has a samurai junk yard with about 30 samurais and a few sidekicks/trackers. His name is JR and he sells most of the parts you guys are getting from trail tough to trail tough as far as I know. Anyway he is a cool guy who loves to talk Shop he can tell you what you need to know. BTW I saw him go up slick rock at tellico his rig was amazing.
