Widetrac D-44 Swap?
I have a chance at a D-44 rear and D-30 front axles complete for about $400. I currently have AMC 20 and Dana 30 narrow trac. I'll have to regear as the widetracs are 2.73 so it's basicly a pair of housings for me. The long term plate is stay with my stock 304, a T-5 trans and 4.11's with a max tire size of 33's mostly dd and easy trail riding. will this extra width be noticeable driving I plan to use an OME YJ 2.5" lift and it's over 2,000 miles to moab (the reason for the T5) Any thoughts? Thanks, John

Seems like an okay deal.. you get a stronger rear axle.. get a wider bit wider stance.

have you already beefed up the AMC20?

No the AMC 20 is all stock so I haven't invested anything in it except wheel bearings. I know the 20 is a good rear end once you put 1 pc. axles in it. How much wider are the wide tracs? John
