It will work as long as you have the right brackets welded on the axle. It won't be a bolt-in deal, the only bolt-in are from TJ'S and XJ/MJ/ZJ front axles.

How difficult to get brackets

I'm not trying to be a dick, but there's a lot more to it than just the axles. I suggest reading up on what all will be needed. I believe you'll need to look into the steering/brakes/gears(depending on what motor/trans you have)

Can you weld? Have you thought about what your custom steering will look like? How about the custom linked suspension? Even with a good bracket kit, you are getting into some pretty involved fabrication.

I liked your idea about going with 33s and think I might do it just seeing for future reference how difficult to build a bigger jeep

Like we have been telling you all weekend, this is big time stuff. And you are clearly starting at the beginning. Not trying to discourage you from figuring it out. But I would strongly strongly suggest learning the basics on a smaller build before tackling something this involved.

I'll say this with no disrespect for WF, but you need to do your research elsewhere. Jeep Forum has more of this going on, but even they max out on 35s most of the time. Pirate 4x4 is what you really need to be studying, but they will give you a very hard time unless you have some idea of what your are doing.

You also should be thinking about a wheel base stretch.

I am new to this and I will check it out thanks for your help!

Couldn't agree more about Pirate. Just either have your shit together or have very thick skin before posting "beginner" questions. I've seen some threads go downhill quick over there :rofl:

Everything you want can be done....just depends on how much time and/or money you want to throw at it.

I would suggest stretching the wheelbase if you're going 1-tons :D

These things take time to understand. And if you really are into it from a functional standpoint, the learning process is a tremendous amount of fun.

We all started out at the beginning. A Jeep is an education. Four years ago, I started all this with a stock Jeep and knowing next to nothing except that I was going to run 33s while building a very good platform for 35s. Function would largely take precedence over form. I have stuck with that all the way through. Last year, I bought a welder and cut off all of my stock suspension to install mid arms. Soon I hope to move all of the shock mounts in order to build in as much suspension travel as my lift and drive lines will allow. In all honesty, my Jeep is already overbuilt for most of what I do with it, but the learning and building is very enjoyable and satisfying.

This site shows a D50 IFS and 10.25 rear(I swear I thought they were solid front axles). As far as stance, I assume you mean Width(WMS)? That's around 69".
