From my understanding the rear is off-set to the passenger side.:confused: :beer: :trooper:

The front is passenger side drop and the rear will be offset a bit to the passenger side as well. 73-79 FSJ's were that way regardless of model/motor/tranny/T-case combos.

only if the insignifigant ofset is going to put you past the operation angles of your driveshaft U-Joints.

the off set shouldn't matter unless you are going to have a really small rear driveshaft, like if you are swapping these in a cj-5.

I took the whole drivetrain out of a 79 j-20 to swap in my cj-7 but changed my mind when I found a 1-ton at a good price, these are still very good axles though.

actually the plans are, and there not deffanate yet, im just gettin my stuff right. a guy has a scout 2 for sale. 345 t-19 wide d20, and the j-20 axles, already soa. im building an 800, a 67 scout. so my plans were to take the stuff out of the s2, including the axles and put them in my 800.

does any one know how wide they are. are they "full width" like over 63" cuz i realy dont want anything thats gonna be REAL wide. im not gonna be realy hardcore or anything as its gonna see alota road time, but capable on the trail to, moreless cuz theres nothin but mud around here unless you wanna drive 6 hrs.

but back to the ? whats the wms on em

my wb is 100" i know that dosent tell my r driveshaft lenght (may streatch it alittle, to like 103 or somthing) but it gives a hint
