Perches would be pretty wide, not easy to get a standard width spring spacing on one.

If you want driver drop, get one from a late 70s f250. If you want passenger, get it from a chevy. Don't bother with the 94+ dodge crap.

Just waying my options. Cad was gonna sell me some 3/4 ton dodge axles with 4.10s and cross over steer. But it ended up being passenger drop. I am buying a house with a garage. I have been workin on the waggy in my drive way. Thats part of the reason I didn't wanna go tons. I have no where to store parts and always working in the heat on asphalt. So tons semed like way to much hassle in this work enviroment. But with a two car garage. I'm startin to think tons. But its all in the air. The house is my #1 priority right now. If I can sell my waggy axles and lift kit along with some side work I can get some tons. And yeah I know..... you told me so.

you dont necessarily have to go tons. i know youre under a budget and i know you arent gonna run 39.5+ tires. it might be more economical to run a 44 up front with maybe a furd 9 inch in the rear....like this guy has

dana 44 ford 9"

I already have a dana 44 front. And my amc 20 rear is stronger than a 9". Its not the cj style axle.

Lol i was thinking the same thing, you've already got a dana 44, but idk about an amc 20 being stronger than a 9"... Actually i seriously doubt that is correct... Omar just likes to hear himself talk, do what we do and just ignore him lol

that works usually.

put a 6 lug 14 bolt semi floater in the rear and keep that 44 up front.

OR put a 14 bolt full floater and convert the front with 8 lug chevy parts and use some 2" wheel spacers up front. assuming you have the 62" front axle.

Yeah that would work.... but also break my wallet. If I go tons I'm gonna buy complete axles. If I can't find what I'm looking for then ill stick with what I got. About the amc 20. The one I have is the fsj version. It has tubes like a dana 44. Also has one peice axles. Unlike the cj version that has tiny tubes and 2 peice axles. It has been said that the (fsj) amc 20 is stronger than a dana 44 due to the pinion gear is thicker and the housing is beefier. This is part of the reason why I have thought these axles would be fine for 35s

If I put a 14 bolt rear I will need some big meat to keep that boat anchor from hitting the center section. Not much clearance on 35s. So for that reason I don't think a 44 and 14 bolt are a verry good combo

Yeah but that truss, diff cover, chop kit = more money than I can even think of spending right now. I'm just saying if I go tons I'm runnin 37s at the least.

Your more than adequate on 35s with those axles. Just run it and have fun. Wish I would have taken that same advice a while back.
