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
Why not just cut off the stock inners and weld on the CJ inners? You needed to get the shafts resplined to fit the Dana 30 center anyway, so you could have them cut down at the same time. This way you'd have a stock-ish width front axle.
