What axle for my build?

So I'm building a 4dr Sidekick. I'm trying to find an axle close to stock or a bit wider. All I can find us inconsistent answers about different axle wms on the friggin internet. Any help would be cool so I can go ahead and find what I need!

Choices:
#1- Scout II (I think it's about 59.5 inches)
#2 - Wagoneer.(It's around 61)

Full width doges and fords are a bit wide (over 65)

Toys are too narrow. (under 58)


And this comes up frickin monthly... Are you sure you searched Newb???

Depends on what suspension you plan to run. Guessing if you plan to build a 4dr sami and not have it be in the ghetto/hack jobs sections you are comfortable doing a cut and turn on the scout axle for a SOA setup. My .02 would be a waggy nice width and readily available.

I've looked for hours and no two answers are the same lol. I found a 1976 wagy for parts. Just waiting to hear back from the guy on what axles are under it. Should be both 44s.

Trying to keep it street legal width or close as possible. It's going to have 37" irocs under it

Thanks guys. Found a set of waggys and a scout. Prob go with the scout. Easier to ask then go to a jeep site and get 4 different measurements for the same set of axles! Rather sound like a noob than spend hours on the damn net! I've got a Zuk to build!
