    Default Build Day 2 Completed...

    Got the Waggy 44 installed today along with the new 7'' Nitro Shocks, R.E. 5.5'' HD Springs and 1.75'' Shackles. Also managed to get the Y-Link Components and Bracket primed and painted. Sitting crazy tall in the rear and figure it will actually be "roughly" that height once the wheels are installed and the springs level some. The front is on the ground still and I need to rip out the stock one. I think I gave myself a hernia lifting that thing too...Freakin Heavy!!!! More to come next Thursday.

    Are they the same width as stock XJ Axles? When I need a bigger front axle I will likely go with a pair of Waggy D44's with the front having Lock out Hubs. I will have to sell my Stock XJ D44 though. Can anyone tell me do the XJ and Waggy rear D44's use the same shafts? I have Chromo shafts in my rear end already

    The axles are from a Grand Wagoner. They have 4.88 gears and Chromoly shafts with lockers in both ends. The stock axles are available if anyone wants them...Maka me an offer.
