    Default axle poll

    I am building a light yj from the frame up to wheel on pizza cutters(34.5x9swamper)
    With front axle drop not being restricted to driver or passenger. Full width are an option and lug pattern.
    I want them to be as bullet proof as possible maintaining decent clearance. So I would say 60s are out.
    I want maunal front hubs.
    What would you run?
    Budget minded of cource.
    This is for my daughters and wife to wheel.

    find a BB 9", preferably with a nodular 3rd. i had a D44 from a mid 80's W150 dodge. they came with unit hub bearings, 5x4.5" lug pattern, and manual lock outs 30 spline inners, 19 spline outers. hack tube off 9", turn ID of D44 tube to accept inner wheel seals of choice, pay Currie $65 to chop down long side shaft. bolt into YJ.

    *edit* they come with flat top knuckles as well.
