Will need a Detroit for the rear and a lockrite for the front. I'm also thinking a YJ hanging brake pedal/vacuum booster.

Well, if you're passing through Albuquerque any time soon, I've got a 4.3 that needs a new home, lol. If not, shouldn't be hard to locate.

Albuquerque is a bit far to go for a motor. All the ones around here I've seen so far are pretty beat with 150K + miles.

You know they make a Deroit for the 30. Does the same thing and is stronger than the lockrite.

And it's twice the price of a Detroit. In a D30 front with 31" or maybe 32" tires a locktite will be just fine. This Jeep ain't going to The Hammers.

Yeah, I know. Don't think a D30 will cut it on the Hammers no matter what locker.

Been doing a bit of research and since I'm having ZERO luck finding an offset D44 rear with one piece shafts from a 70 or 71 CJ5 I'm thinking about Herm the Overdrive Guy's full floater kit. It's definitely cheaper than than a custom rear axle housing and shafts. Anyone have any experience with this kit ?

Nothing really worth taking pics for. I'm cleaning parts and disassembling the front D30 we got from wilez5150. The D30 is in great shape, even the brake pads look almost new. Still have to figure out the gear ratio to see if I'll need a different carrier or not.

Those D44's are getting harder to find. You might want to try a "WTB" on ECJ5.

There was a guy locally who has one for sale awhile back. If you're on facebook his name is Jody Abbott. Shipping would be a pain but on a pallet via fastenal would be cheaper than Herm's full floater kit.

I would be curious on feedback for this as well. My 41 already has 5.38's and I want FF for flat towing.

His website says you can get selectable hubs for it if you wish instead of drive slugs.

I've heard good things from Herm's kit via ECJ5.com. It is pricey though.

Have you seen Meiser's conversion? That might be an option if you can make the spacers/adapters for the spindles.

Road trip.....................................

...................................... to xbombtek's place outside Albuquerque to pick up a 4.3L Chevy V6. Decided to leave right from work tomorrow afternoon and hopefully make Phoenix, stay the night, then get to his place around lunchtime, load up and head back west until I get too tired, maybe Flagstaff. That should get me back home early afternoon Sunday with some down time before going back to work Monday morning. Going to be a long weekend.
