my dads Jeep looks like it has a wider stance
me and my dad got our jeeps around the same time his is a 1989 mine is a 1995. his Jeep has a wider stance to it. is this normal for the year we are trying to figure out if it has different axles on it or not. his axel in the rear looks different than mine but I was not sure if this is just the year difference or if he had possibly a Dana 44 on is

If I'm not mistaken alot was changed in 1995 to the yjs. They have alot of tj similarities

Your wheels may have a different back spacing. :thumb:

like nubby said, its likely rim backspacing differences, even if someone did swap a different rear end in his.

The 89 if stock, has a non c-clip d35 and 10" drums while the 95 has 9" drums and c-clips. Do both have stock rims? If not, As was said. Probably a backspacing difference on the rims.

It's not the axles, it's just simply the rims. Unless you post a pic we won't know 100%

I know when I bought my High Steer kit from Rocky Road they sent me the wide track steering kit. The tie rod was too long to screw the tie rod ends in far enough to do the alignment. When I called them they told me pre-92' were wide track, and later than that were narrow track. Now I dont know if it is just for the tie rod, or if it also has to do with the actual axle itself. It is only a difference of about 1 1/2" though so most people would probably overlook it.
