He just cut off the stock inner c's but saved the tube, then installed the cj c's. But the newer 30 knuckles have a longer c so to switch to the 44 stuff you need to add about a 1" of tube. Which is why I cut and sleeved the old 30 knuckles. Does that kinda make sense?
This whole axle, including all the new steering and 4:88's installed will cost less than the warn hub conversion by itself. And I gain strength in places it doesn't, plus replacement parts are a auto store away
