I have a pair of dana 44's I plan on listing on here soon. I just bought them for my XJ but their too narrow to run with my 16" wide tires. They are complete with disc brakes all the way around, 5:13 gears, detroit in the front, full spool in the rear, brand new warn premium lockouts (never even installed yet) brake pads and rotors are in excellent condition. I just wire-wheeled the axles and re-painted them, just to find out that i have no use for them. They came out of a guys YJ and i unfortunately cant run them, looking for a full width 44 and 9in.
just want what i paid for the axles back $1000

I would take you up on that if i had the cash but as of right now I'd pretty broke.

Thanks... I think having it layer kinda makes it look not as big as it really is..

Well I blew out my pinion bearing in my 8.8 so while i have the axle out I decided it's time to get rid of that cheap plastic diff cover so I decided to make my own.

Planning stages



Mostly final product

It wasn't to bad since I had the idea for it in my head... It was pretty easy mapping it out with the cardboard first. It's not as heavy duty as some of the aftermarket ones but it's better then the cheap plastic one it comes factory with.

Well since i have half doors and I can't always make it out side in time to put my window inserts in before it starts raining, I wanted to get a set of seats that I don't have to worry about getting wet so I got some plastic racing buckets. I put these in around mid summer and just haven't gotten around to posting pictures of them.

Well I'm ditching the spare tire carrier in my bed and this is the inspiration for the new tire carrier

http://www.tiregate.com/prerunner_0.shtml

Here is the progress so far. I am having it function like a tailgate instead of a swing out and instead of mounting it to the bed, I am mounting everything to my bumper because it seems like it will be stronger that way. It will also be able to mount both both ways like the one on that site.

Got my tiregate just about finished other then a couple little finishing touches.

Here is how it will sit on the truck most of the time.



Tail gate open!



Without the tire on



Without the tire on the other way



Now with the tire on the other way







It will be nice to finally have usable bed space again. with my old tire carrier my bed was basically useless.

Finally got the tiregate all cleaned up and painted.









The only thing I don't completely like about it is that I made the tire stick up a bit to high. If it starts to bug me I can always take it off and lower it down.

Well I haven't really done a whole lot with this truck in a while. I finally got windows made for the inserts on my half doors. I think they came out pretty well.





Then just some random shots with the half doors on since I never got any good ones.

Put my new wheels are tires on!!! It looks much better with tires that have some side lugs to them.
