That is correct, even though the differential is in the middle of the axle, the lengths are different. If you are going to carry a spare, you will need to carry both sides.

I verified that with Randy's Ring and Pinion.

Or at the very least you should carry the longer side which I believe is the passenger. You can limp home with it in on either side.

? The long axle works on both sides (though I wouldn't drive it on the street if you stick it in the short side, just to get off the trail - since the brake drum for the 'short axle' side will hover off of the shoes just a hair) - the short axle works on only one side.

Chances are that if 1BLKJP says it will work, it will. He has probably tried everything in the book, and purhaps some things that aren't in the book. And as he said, it would let you limp out of the trails. That is pretty much gospel, to me. If he says it can be done, I believe him. Just from what I have read on this forum, he has changed everything there is to change, and has broken, just about everything breakable, and has survived it all, to go back out and do it again. One very respectable Jeeper, IMO.

David is spot on here. I was just saying that it can be done to get you off of a trail if need be. Obviously carrying both replacement shafts is the optimum way to go.

I agree with you man. Thinkin any moving part on his rig must have busted and been replaced if not once, but maybe even twice. I hear guys out in AZ are pretty hardcore.

If I was a betting man, I would bet that you are the owner of the white Jeep in 1BLKJP's pictures...........that is if I was a betting man..........lol. Seeing how you are from Hellizona, and all. Great to have you on board either way. You seem to have a great bunch of guys in that neck of the woods,(desert).......lol. And about the hardcore business, that is what I have been led to believe. Bunch of radicals out there.........ain't happy till they flip over back wards, or break something. A Fearless bunch for sure. Always trying to invent something that will do the unthinkable, or impossible.

Well, lay your money down.
I would say more along the lines of Firearm radicals.
