Well I am really a big newbie to this board but you guys have not steered me wrong. Im running a 4.3 with stock axles and 2 inch lifted jeep springs with 33 swampers. I keep braking U joints. And when I installed the locker I couldn't believe how small the axles really were. So I am going to swap the stock axles with a set of Land Cruiser axles. I'll be running a 350 turbo with the adapter to run a Toy transfer case. The only problem is that the Cruiser axles will be offset and the T-Case won't be. I was wondering if there will be a problem running it at that angle? I hope its gonna work cause with the stronger stuff I'll be running 35 15.50 swampers and should have no problems with breakege. Thanks again for all the help with my past questions.

Ok, so I'm stupid for posting while drinking a few beers. I didn't mean axle angle what I did mean was Drive shaft angle. Sorry for the stupid flunder! Take care Scott

Have him order you a shaft with at high angle CV (40*) with the U joint for the Cruiser rear end (1310??), the upper CV has an operating angle of 20* with a max of 40*. Oh also have them make it long travel too....You should be fine with this set up...
I have the Zuk Tcase with D44's on it and my rearDline is at an offset too.
But when you do this, point your diff up towards your Tcase and have it 2* less angle than your Dline slope....(ie..slope 18* set rear end +16*)
I just went through all of this on mine... Good luck!! <IMG SRC="smilies/jeep2.gif" border="0">

why not just use a tacoma rearend? it's about the same as a cruiser front and it's centerd. don't know the strength diffences but it'd be better than the compound angle.

One of the big problems is money and I have a friend giving me a great deal on the cruiser axles. One that I can't pass up. Thats why I don't think I'm gonna be able to afford the custom drive shafts that they make at this time. So I was just gonna make a drive shaft my self to the right length and have it balanced for the time being I just didn't know if it would bind up at the differn't angles like that, and give me any vibrations.
