it was pretty rare in the cj-7 ur best chances of finding one would be to look in an 86 they are most plentiful in that year. and there were such things as narrow track waggies. the width on them ran about 60-61 inches however ya use the tapemeasure <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Good luck finding a D44 rear out of a cj7. I would go with a little wider axle from a scout II. They're easier to find.

In the rear you just move the spring perches. In the front you'd have to outboard the springs.

Like Mark said, on the rear you just move the spring perches (on the axle tube).
My understanding is that all Waggoneers are same width, only Cherokee Chiefs are wider.
There is tons of this info on this board if you search for it.

Scout has the same bolt pattern as the CJ. The Waggy's are 6 lug

Yup!

I'm not sure, but I think the waggy rears have an off centered diff in the rear. I know scouts are centered, which is a good thing, you only need to carry one spare rear axle shaft.

Only the Quadratrac equipped Wagoneers have the offcentered rear all others are centered.

Scout fronts kinda suck, crappy alignment and/or pinion angle depending on how you install it, also they don't have flat top knuckles which are needed if you ever want highsteer
