Found Another Option:

*EDIT* finally found a source that looks solid saying the early bronco 44 came in around the mid 1970s....another fail attempt.


I know one guy who used an early bronco axle and converted the hubs...I work at les schwabs so maybe i could do it cheap.... idk
It's out of a 69 bronco. He's pretty sure it's a 44.

But this guy said i can have it for 100 bucks...

Shoud I make the hour drive??

First of all... it's super hard to tell in the photo.. But they did not make the bronco D44 until 1971... All the others were the D30. (R&P) looks small in the photo as well. It almost appears to be a kingpin D30 as well... I would not buy it. It's not worth it.

Ironically right after I posted that my cousin called me ( the one building my lift ) and I told him I'm having a tough time getting an axle. He suddenly remembered he has a friend who may have a waggy lying around. I called his friend and the guy said its from a 1980s grand wagoneer driver drop with no vacuum actuator, he was gonna put it under his Nissan. Anyways we agreed on $200 = complete axle, plus springs and shock towers.

I'm heading to look at it this weekend.

While that one ('89 Ford) will work the pumpkin is slightly more towards the center of the axle than the 78/79 was. The 78/79 pumpkin tucks perfectly into the recess created for the stock diff.

Using an axle with a more centered pumpkin will cost you some uptravel/ride height sacrifices.

Yes, remove the center part only but save both u-joints and make that setup into a single u joint. IIRC you'll have to cut the ears off in a couple parts but you might be able to disassemble the whole thing and make 1 u joint out of it. This will bolt to your steering column. Then you just need to figure out an intermediate slip joint to go between that and the steering box u joint.

Just build a internal cage most exo cages are fugly anyway and everyone with exo's just beats the shit out of their truck and they look like hamburger after one run. Just look at Eric's truck . Internal cage and don't drive like a dip shit is what i would do. It's all about the occupants in the truck anyway.
