      Hi Nick been a while since I've been on here been busy with life...I'm looking for a front 44 set up or matching set to put under a flatty.. I had a guy break one of my jeeps and is going to pay me to fix it I want to upgrade axles.. What would it cost to have you build me a set with 5.38s or 4.88s?

      Nick, John Ryan here (gunner on the forum). I have a low-slung Koenig winch complete with 5/16" cable and the original Koenig drum guard/fairlead part. All original- paint etc- and in great shape. I'll be down in Puyallup again; if anybody down your way is looking for one, I could take it down with me. I haven't taken any pics yet but will send them down to you if there is any interest. Thanks

      Nick, On the intermediate forum you commented to a question regarding corrector or best caster angle. I asked if you could expand on one of your comments to try and better understand what you are discribing. A fellow I know is having a steering problem and although I haven't seen the jeep yet I want to have a better understanding in addition to caster what can posibly be causing his problem. Could you please expand on your comment? Ed

      Hey Nick, you seem tot be the guy to ask about axles stuff so here it goes. I found a set of J20 axles out of a 79 for $300, with a 60 rear and 44 front, has open knuckles in the pic, rear is full floating, both are pass side drop. These things are very wide, im curious if its even a possible to narrow these down to 53"ish or 56"ish to get them under my 64' CJ5. I would prefer not to outboard if I can get away with it. Is this setup even possible or worth it? Can I buy cut to fit axles and drop in? I dont mind cutting and welding the tubes, doing some fab work on them, just want something bulletproof I wont have to worry about later. Thanks. Will.

      Nick,

      Starting to install 11" drums on my axles finally. I do have a question since I don't have an assembled drum brake to look at. Does the brake shoe with the shorter amount of lining go to the front? And the long lining brake shoe to the rear?

      I placed an ad WTB a fender without indent. It is under early cj5 classified. I would like to delete it but do not know how. Please delete or send me a message on how to do it myself. Thanks for your help on this site.

      Hi Nick,

      Got a question for you. I have a pre 67 cj6 tub and wondered what the diff would be in a 68 frame, would they work together. I also have an offer for a M170 would that work?

      Do you think I should tear back into this transmission ?

      Hi, I hear you may have a twin stick conversion kit available? Can you tell me about it and pricing? I have a single stick D18 and I hate it.
      Thanks!

      Cool. Glad it got there. I got that axle 6 or 7 years ago when I still had my Dodge with the D60 front. I bought it from a guy at 4-Wheel & Off-Road. I can't exactly remember what model he said it was for, but I remember it wasn't for a Dodge. I got it on the off chance that it'd fit my Dodge's Dynatrac D60 front if I ever broke the long side shaft. I think it's for a Chevy D60 front (like from a CUCV pickup). Fuzzy memory also seems to think it's either a Yukon or Moser alloy shaft and not just a regular stock replacement type shaft. If it's a Moser it's an early prototype because I think they now stamp "Moser" around the U-joint ears nowadays.

      Either way, if it fits your housing I'd hit the seal surfaces with a little light emory cloth to remove that flash rust and run it.

      Good luck with it.
