Default cherokee axle swap

putting a set of full width half ton axles under this cherokee. high pinion dana 44 he bought off a guy, has high steer, 4.10 gears and detroit. and prob a 9 inch in the rear. he bent the 30 pretty bad. not gonna be anything super fancy just simple and functional.





just got done cutting radius arm wedges and various other brackets off the axle.
