Question about 6 to 5 lug D44 conversion.

I have the info from the Jeep god's site where he list the parts to swap a Ford hub, etc to get to 5 on 5.5 from 6 lug, but I do not see if that requires a different length outer axle shaft than the stock Waggy length. Does the Chev small spindle change that length over the Waggy spindle? I know that the WMS is slightly wider when it is all done.

I figure I will see when I put it all together, but if I order alloy axles first, then I want to get it right the first time.

Anyone know off hand?

Waggy stubs & Chebby stubs are the same length.

The only thing you have to worry about is the correct spindle/bearings for the hub (can't remember if its big or small bearings.)
Yeah? Cool. I figured he was pretty good with all the other details of the swap, so it seemed a bit odd to have left something like that out.

I got the bearing thing figured out. Small bearings IIRC, but I have to check the stuff I printed out when I go to NAPA, etc.
