I’m confident these axles are both jeep wagoneer axles (d44) but for the life of me I can’t remember what year these wagoneer axles came from that were compatible for a 1979 CJ5.

I need to order some axle parts and need to figure out what year these axles would have come from so I can search for parts.

The front looks like a 74-79 Wagoneer front axle. The rear could also be that, but in some of the Wagoneer model years the pumpkin was not centered on the rear axle. I get confused about the rear axles. The front axle looks like the axle I have in my shop for the SAS I am doing on My Chevy Colorado. The one I have came from a 75 Wagoneer.

I am not a Jeep guy, but I know that the CJ5's were all like 56 or 57 inches WMS to WMS. The CJ7's had two different axle widths. Jeep widened the track in response to a perceived rollover issue. Wagoneer front axles like mine, 74 - 79 years range, are 59.5 to 60 inches WMS to WMS Grand Wagoneer and Cherokee chiefs were around 62.5 in the 74 - 79. I only know these because of my research for my SAS on my 2005 Chevy Colorado.

Rear is probably a scout. It was very common to swap in a scout rear with waggy front. What is the lug pattern. Most waggys were 6 on 5.5 and scouts were 5 on 5.5.
