toy side gears and welded to a D44 carrier.
If they dont fit, surely a machinist could take them down or make a bushing.

then its just getting tube lengths right and making the OEM 44 carrier Survive.

I like the idea.

Fj40 balls and outer knuckles are the same as minitrucks correct?
yeah that is what i posted just above you. i have a machinist buddy that can make me a d44 spool then broach it for toy splines for free. it would be made of 4340 cromo. also, if i get an arb and take it apart he can make the part i would need with custom side gears out of 4140 or 4340..... i think i am going to start cutting and see where it gets me.

i would be more than willing to take the knuckle off in order to fit larger birfield into the D44 knuckle. is that the only problem? if so, it seems to me that its easily overcome by just taking the knuckle off to install them.

Interesting idea, but it sounds like you're polishing 2 turds instead of just getting a D60 or building a 9/60 and not having a custer of an axle with one-off parts. Especially if you're gonna put a spool in it, I see:nuke: already with anything bigger than 37's and actually getting wheeled.

You wouldn't be able to get the knuckle back on though.

Exactly, unless they have a Kingpin D44 or those new flexible unobtainium ball joints.:rolleyes:

sure, i get board and just want to tinker with something. i also have my other rig i can wheel. once you go so big you have to look real hard for a challenge. when your small and nimble everything is a challenge.
