92' NISSAN PATROL AXLES PROS & CONS???

Hi guys, just looking for advice about these axles, they were pull off from a Nissan Patrol 92í if Iím not wrong, the Spain version, they are leaf sprung and the front one is cracked at the chunk.
Iím thinking about using them on a one seater transaxle buggy project on 35Ē tall tires, so itíd be a light buggy and I can trade the axles by work, whatís a good thing for me saving some money since Iím on a low budget, I know Iíll have to fix the front one, but itís not a problem for me, even though Iíve planned to do a truss, so strength wouldnít be a problem I guess.
If Iím not bad the front is a C200 what means it has a ring of 200mm and the rear is a H233 third member which means a 233mm ring tall.
This is all the info I actually have, Iíve seen several Nissan Patrol abused in their original state, I mean as they come from factory, and these are a heavy rig, so if they stand in this way maybe using these axle for a light buggy could be fine, but of course I came here to listen some of your advices guys, pros and cons, Iíd appreciate it too much.

Gonna have a hard time getting any parts for them if you're in the US. From what I hear, they are quite strong though. Aftermarket support is weak in the US.

If you're in the US, I'd try and find a set of FZJ 80 axles. They are a lot more common and you can get stock parts as well as aftermarket parts easier. Pretty similar in strength as well.

Iím not in the states my friend, Iím from Argentina which means almost the same for this particular fact of getting parts for these axles, nothing around here, maybe just some replacement stock parts, and I know that Toyota axles have more stuff to improve them, what happens, really, is that Iím in a very low budget and I can trade the Patrol axles for work as I said, so this is why Iím opting to get these ones, nothing else, I think maybe they would hold up, but if something very bad happened to them Iíd be just fried, weíll seeÖ

They look like a 233 and C200.

They will hold up fine on a light buggy. The same axles were used on the V-6 Pathfinders and Hardbodys here in the states except that the C200 on them was only offered in an IFS version.

But I would not recommend using the cracked housing...

The C200 is toast, toss it and get a new housing. I would source a H233 front, should be in all Patrols from 1988 onward but the 260 series did run after 1988 which was just a revised 160 Patrol. In particular in Spain a lot of 260s as they were made in Spain.

If you get yourself a new housing and use the C200, you can use H233 CVs and hubs in the axle. This gives you a little strength increase in the front end.

Cheers

Thanks for your comments RMP&O, so youíll toss the front axle even tough getting a truss on it to reinforce the whole axle, because itís my idea doing it in this way to try to get it running again, of course your thinking will be the right way to go, but trying to find a donor housing here at my location will not be an easy work. I still need to know if there is something wrong inside, like a broken axle shaft, spider gears, ring & gear, so when I really know how itís inside Iíll take my final decision I think.

Housing looks toast to me dude. It is cracked nearly in half. The center section is cast iron, not easy to weld it. Don't think you can salvage it. Guts may or may not be damaged.

It is a small 8" diff, I wouldn't waste a lot of time and $$$ on it.


Cheers
