    TJ ton swap

    I bought a dana 60 for Baboozle last year for his Willie's project. It didn't work out for him and I bought the as soon as he offered it. I got it home. Took off the drums and brake assembly's. I was doing research on and couldn't find anything that matched. I measured the ring gear and turned out to be 10.5". I found the bill of material number, Googled it, found out it's a dana 70 from an '85 f350. Cleaned the axle of the rust and got a axle swap kit from ruff ruff stuff

    Was replacing the axle shaft flange bolt and sheared one in the hub due to gauling

    Got a few ideas. Either gonna stick with my current 44 and use the 5.13 gear set I have for and get wheel adapters. Or narrow a 60. But with a 60 the coil buckets are 1.5" wider than factory so I'd either have bowed springs or upgrade to kings, and if I put kings up front, gotta put them in the rear too.

    Found that I had an upper control arm break off on the front axle. It must have cracked and worked it's way to breaking off. That'll have to get fixed before I move on with the rear swap. I pulled the front axle out and took out the driver side bushing.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
