What is the width on those axles? I am looking at a set from a 77 F-150, but I'm afraid they will be too wide without shortening them. Awesome build too

Understandable. I think if mine break Im just gonna get stock 31 spline cromos because Im settin detroit lockers up in the front and back and I deff. dont want to have to change those out. But cromoly shafts are supposedly about 35% stronger than a stock shaft so if a stock one breaks then hopefully that would fix it. I do have a stock spare for the front though just in case but after I break that the front is deff. gonna get some upgraded shafts. That thing looks great and it gives me a wonderful idea of what mine will look like because I have a red TJ with FT long arms and the same axles, lmao. Even funnier, I used to run 34" interco's too. Hopefully she'll hold up to the new 36's!

Those sound like axles out of a 1970's F150. Because the front axle had leaf spring mounts and 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern I would say they are from a 77-78 F-150 supercab. The BOM on the axle would be 610012-1, or -2 or it would be 610048-1, -2, -4, or -5.

The only ford 9" rear axle that I've been able to find with a 68" wms width is from a 1972Ford 3/4 ton van. 1973-77 were 65" wms, and '78 to 86 were 69".

From more research it appears Ford used the 9" with 68" wms on all 1972 E series vans. Could be from a 1972 E100, or E150.
