ok, one of my buddies has an '82 scrambler. got run off the road a few months ago and bent his rear axle. now my question is what would be a good upgrade. not looking for anything extreme and definitely not that expensive. he's interested in putting a stock axle back in, but i'm trying to convince him to upgrade while he's at it.

please help, its been retired to the field until we can fix it! <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

I dont know of any 9" fords that are the right width, so you would need to have it narrowed and thats probably more money than you want to spend. I would look for a 44, out of a 72' to 75' CJ5 or find a 44 out of an old mail jeep, I think they had 3:54 gears, but I'm not certain, the scrambler probably has 3:54 or 3:73's if it's stock. What ever you decide on, It will probably be cheaper to buy somthing with the correct gear ratio.

I'm not positive, but I think the EB is about 4" or 5" wider than a jeep. He could put a full width front end in also ( which I'm not a fan of), But I think his whole idea was to keep it inexpensive and simple.

The Scrambler would be a wide track, so an EB or Scout 44 only a couple inches wider. The '72 - '75 CJ's are narrow track & I think mail Jeeps are even narrower.
