    Default axle swap

    I was shopping around on craigslist and came across a j20 for sale for $1,000. What got me was that it has dana 60 in the rear and dana 44 in the front. Now would i able swap out both axles and put it under my TJ? (i just mean the setup, i know it wouldnt be a direct bolt on)

    Haha. Is the pumpkin for the front axle on the driver or passenger side of the Jeep? If you're in a TJ or YJ, you're looking for a driver drop.

    Do some research on those axles. I don't believe that D60 is going to be that strong. You'll probably want to upgrade shafts.
    The D44 should be drivers side drop.
    I'd buy it, you could strip the axles and sell off the engine and trans for what you paid for it.
