Yup, the axle was purchased complete. Yup, flat top knucles. Used all of it except the steering rods. 8 bolt knucles, and 8 lug pattern disks. swapped the gears for 5-13s and rotated the knucles and machined the center section for 7 degrees of caster, then sent one complete side (From inner knucle out ) to W.M.S. and they drilled and tapped the knucles, and used my stuff to build their first set of high steer arms for hummer wheels on a 44. Heim ends on tapped solid bar steering rods, agr steering, with their version of the sams off road pitman arm ( 2 in thick bar, with the correct spline and hole for rod end, then the heavy steering box bracket from sams off road ) The agr box is actually part of a complete rock ram system I swapped for a cage that I built and installed. Thought I'd wait to install the ram portion of it till it made it's first few runs, then figure out where I'd mount it. I'll try and get some pic's up later today..

Thanks for all of the great info. Who will have the axles since scout II stuff will not work. ?? Any Ideas on trail spares ?? On the aftermarket side, warn blanks to dutchman then ?? Or is the tollerances such that I can use something else ??

I've Ford & FSJ shaft lenght listed in my Dana 44 article, but from those numbers I'm guessing you'll need Chevy Dana 44 parts. If it has a 297 type U-joint the Chevy axle will be a 29833-1x or 2x with 18.5" and 36 1/8"
Dodge has too much to list, but with 297 U-joints the stub side will be too short (18 5/16, 17 3/4, 16 29/32, 16 7/64) but the long side is close (36 28/32, 36 1/4, 37 3/32, 36 1/2) Maybe Dan can list the years?

Dan, have you ever seen BOM info older than 67? I've some contacts at Dana and they can't find info or catalogs listing older info. Guess we'll have to start hunting used book stores. ;)

Can you double check your BOM? I'm guessing if the number is correct it's a 71 maybe a 72 axle. How sure are you its a Chevy axle?

Best I could do was a 603633, but is Jeep

Yup, thought you might ask the internal external question.. thought about adding it after I'd posted.. external..

All the pics I have already have the high mount steering mounted, is this ok ?? I'll move them to a web site and post them soon..

I'm sure I'll have more questions later. desparately need to locate some spares for my jeep. Let me think it through so I don't waste your time with pointless blather..How much tolerance should I consider o.k. ??

Jeff, thanks for posting. If your replacing the axle sahft some day, snap a pic of the knuckle with the caliper plate off. Thanks, if you don't mind I'll grap a shot for my Dana 44 flat top article. So far I've just shots of complete IH alxes with flatops, but I do have both style hubs on a flat top :D

Edit -> Are thoses arms for Hummer rims?

Have the catalog number for 79-00? (Or is it the Chevy only book?)
