Ok, it seems like we got a little off the questions I asked, so lets try again.

I am able to get a custom built FJ-40 rear axle with 30 spline alloy shafts, disks, and it has a centered diff.
Now I can get this axle for nearly nothing.

My problem is, its only 56" wide, and I need an axle 60" wide. Is it possible to use wheel spacers to get it closer to 60", or would it just need to be lengthened???
Second, its a 6on5.5 bolt pattern, can it be converted to 5on4.5 like a Wag. D44 can???

I've also found a pair of Wagoneer D44s locally, but these I'd have to pay for. Would it be better to go after these?
I've been told the FJ axle is stronger, but it may be alot more trouble...

And nothing about Dana 60s ok, I'm not going any bigger then 36" tires until I graduate from college in 4 years, so I think a D44 or FJ axle can handle that. Hell, my D35 has held up to 35" tires for almost a year with abuse (knock on wood)

If I were you I would get the f-40 rear (please don't flame) because that would be some thing biffrent and it would probably hold up to 36's there pretty stout. and I'm not sure but couldn't get a waggy front and put chevy 1/2 ton brakes onit and it would have 6 on 5.5 wouldn't I'm not 100% I don't know to much about chevy stuff.
