sorry for the AMC 20 post... going full width front and rear, im figuring about 4 inches of tire sticking out both sides - whats the law on that? i heard its not legal, but no one has ever reported getting a ticket for it... is it just something cops turn a blind eye toward, untill you do something else dumb to get you pulled over?

well it is a ford 9" out of an E-150 econoline, 31 spline, 3.50 ratio... me and gabe got two identical ones the other day :strong:
still need a front of equal width before i swap... looking for a wagoneer front D44, those are reportedly 65 inches wide also, and passenger side drop, which i need. but ive gotta alot of fabrication ahead of me to mount these after rebuilding and regearing them. at which time i will post on here asking for any local machine shop or "dude with a welder" that can move my spring perches and shock mounts. and i have a CJ5 lifted 2-3 inches in springs, and im going to go SOA on this, so i have to work out driveline angles in a major way. :tdown:

this was saturday :cool: (the pics are being hosted, but if they dont show up, sorry)

281QuadCam,

We are moving this thread to "Tech Talk". Excellent info on axle build up.
See if you can reduce your posted pics 640x480 to avoid the scroll from left to right of a thread.
Thanks,

Admin

I havev not heard of anyone gettign a ticket for full width axles yet. I am also going full width, only w/ 1 ton axles. If you have to cover the tires, you can get wider flares, or make some removeable ones w/ conveyor belt material.

If you don't fight for the trails, there won't be any trails to fight for.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." ....
