    New Chevy YJ Project

    Just thought i would throw up some pics of my ride. In the rear sits a DRW Dana 70 from a chevy cube van, gonna need some H1 wheels i think, up front will sit a front dana 60 from a Ford f350
    p.s. last pic is with the 8.8, too narrow!

    There's so many on pirate4x4 and all over craiglist and such. Just go pick them up in Buffalo. It's not a long drive at all and there won't be any duty charges on them either (NAFTA).

    Are you not stretching the wheelbase at all with the full-width swap? It looks like everything is in the stock locations.

    I just finished converting my TJ to coilovers in the front, leafs springs in the rear and made a rear bumper and hung the shackles off the back of it to move everything back. It would be a good mod for your full-width axles to increase the off-road performance.

    SRW will fit on a DRW axle the same, the only difference is that DRW set up uses two opposing Bud style wheels, to do this they make the wheel mount surface (WMS) about 15 inches wider, so it's gonna be ASS WIDE. The reason i picked this axle is because i want to run H1 wheels
