The fronts yeah cause it's cv also :) and it would be sweet to have that rear axle it's probably a tank

I might be wrong but the durango might be the same chassis as te commander so the axle might be the same.

Update on the engine rebuild here is the new distributor going in. This is taking forever lol

flyfishnevada 07-18-2011 05:07 PM

Don't feel bad, it took me 5 years to get my CJ down to the frame. I've had the parts for the axles so I can rebuild them since last winter, but have only got the AMC 20 apart so far. Taken me so long, I bought a TJ so I can have an actual running Jeep. You're doing fine!
