Default fullsize or not.

i've got a 93 yj with fullsize chevy axles under t right now and just got back from rocks and valleys in a tj and had a blast. my worry is that my buddy with the tj had some tight squeezes and if i was in my yj, i'm sure we would have missed a trail or two. i'm wanting to run between a 35 and 38. what are good axle options for me. i was thinkin wide track cj axles or wagoneer axles maybe. and when i'm askin for advice i want something pass drop. leaf sprung, and come factory with 4:10s

Locked front and ANYTHING over a 35 or 36, just do yourself a favor and go with a 60 right off the bat. You could always narrow it to suit your tastes. As a matter of fact, I just saw one of those on here. It needed to be finished, but it was a great buy for the $$$.

well i'm not willing to spend money on a 60 let alone a 60 and narrowing it. i'm looking more a less d44 options.

waggy axles are pretty narrow. could live with 35's or 36's if built right and wheeled smartly. if you hammer down all the time dont go with less than a 60

cj axle will be narrower than the stock yj axles. A narrow track waggy axle is real close to the same width as a stock yj or tj axle. I don't think you could get 4:10's in one though.

Rear axle to match the front you can get a waggy 44, isuzu 44 rear will have disc's and available with 4:10's or 4:30's. Could also run a Early Bronco 9" rear or a Scout 44 rear with a hub swap on the front to 5 lug

Easiest thing to do would be to run wheels with higher backspacing on the chevy axles which will bring the tires back in for a narrower overall width
