nic, you are so, what is the word, gullible?

Who the heck would run a V8, with the stock axles?

You are smarter than that, I think...........

in my opinion it will work for on road use only if he drives normal without spinning wheels at the traffic lights.
off the road in sand on the beach it could also be ok.

but the first time he gets stuck and needs full throttle in 4L he could damage his axles.

Well Iam up to change them. Its Turbo 350 is the best I can tell u sorry Its a good builder I think no rust on the body anywhere and none on the frame. I saw a Yj with axles out of a K-5 in it would that be a bad way to go ? Make es the trac wider ?
