That front waggy axle is a passenger side drop, while your dana 30 is a driver side drop, that would be your first limitation. You would need a 1980 or later Front 44 from a Waggy. The rear axle may...

Are the axles already geared and locked?

If not its not worth it to swap in the HP dana 30 out of a YJ. You will spend 3-400 on brackets then add labor to that, plus they have the CAD. You can...

You are thinking of a Grand Cherokee ZJ or WJ. The Cherokee XJ 44 is similar to a TJ dana 44, just without the brackets. But they are hard to find since they were only produced a couple of years in...

Yep, this is the least desirable Front Dana 60 you could have found. I believe the inner shafts are 32 spline vs. 35 spline from the fords and Chevy 60's. Lockers are pretty much non existent for...

Good luck trying to find them right now. They are on back order everywhere I look.

Like others have said, there's more to just mounting 37's and running with it. There are other needs to be...

You are going to have to do a lot of research. and to see whether the cost vs. reward is worth it. For me it was since I could do the majority of the work myself, plus I found a hp 44 with chromos...

But the 60 gains its strength from being a full floater vs. a semi float like the 44. Plus the spindle should be able to be bored and run 35 spline.

Since he converted the front to leaf springs, It's not a bolt in affair, you will need the appropriate brackets for the front and rear axles in order to swap them in.

If you know how to weld and...

There may be an issue with these lines. The Jeep brake line hole for the banjo bolt is 3/8" and the Chevy hole opening for the banjo bolt is 10mm. This may cause a sealing issue between the hose and...

you could look into Staun internal beadlocks as well. This will get you away from the legal/ not legal thing.

Or you could go 15" stealies with a weld on beadlock kit. Much cheaper alternative if...

This may be true, but the the Dana 60 is still much stronger due to being a full float axle.

That's not an F-250 axle, unless they re-tubed it. It could be a Chevy or Dodge, or even possibly a Jeep of that era.

Like it was said above, its not worth the headache when you can easily find a...

Just an FYI, I am running a Dana 44 Front from a 74 F-150, with F-250 outers for the 8x6.5 bolt pattern and bigger brakes. A Dana 60 rear from a 68 Chevy 3/4 ton. I purchased the brackets and had a...

It all depends on what you consider simple. Like I said, the only thinks that will bolt in is the HP30 from an XJ, Dana 44 from a rubicon or custom axle from a vendor.

On any other axle, you will...

The only things that are "bolt ins" are HP dana 30 out of an XJ, or a rubicon 44. Everything else will take a lot of work. Unless you buy a custom axle from G2, currie etc, but then you are talking...

You have to be careful with these, since the pumpkin maybe offset 4" on one side, unless you plan on narrowing the axle. Other than that they are great axles, and easily accept 35 spline shafts. I...
