    Thanks so much! Iíll check out the thread. Iíve been looking into just putting a rubicon front axle so then I can get rid of the d30. But why go to a 44 when I can just go 60s hahaha just trying to weigh options out. The grinding and cutting donít scare me so much as the gears.. Iím a welder by trade so the fab should be a breeze. Gears on the other hand... Iím not so educated in hahaha

    Baboozle posted a pretty detailed thread a few months ago about using a set of ford axles. He had a Sterling in the rear rather than a 14 bolt, which required a different gas tank, but the thread will give you some idea of the work and cost involved in such a project.

    Or you could buy one already built....I know a guy who has one. Lol. But yeah I know what you mean. Only one way to learn though. The 14 bolt gears are pretty easy to setup though.

    Iíve seen people use the sterling and I have access to one but I didnít want to go that far and buy or build a new tank. Iíve heard of people just smashing the corner of their stock tank in or if itís lifted high enough it clears but sounds like more than I want to spend.

    Iíll have to look up baboozle thread. I honestly havenít looked up any threads yet. Iíll be on tonight searching though.

    14 Bolt out of a 2005 Chevy 2500HD. Axle is built to bolt into a JK. Brackets are tacked in place and need to be final welded after mock-up in the vehicle. Truss is fully welded out as there is no suspension mounting point integral to it. Built with 8 degrees pinion angle ideal for around 4Ē lift. Here are all the details $3200

    Artec 14 bolt swap kit
    Ballistic Fab 14 bolt shave
    ARB Locker
    5:38 Yukon gears
    Hubs machined and 52 tooth tone rings pressed on to match Jk
    Modified to accept wheel speed sensors
    All new bearings and seals
    Brand new e-brake pads and linkage
    Artec pinion guard included
    Wheel studs swapped to 9/16-18
    1350 Yoke

    I might be missing some things but please ask if you have any questions. Most of the build of this is on my build thread.

    Price drop to $3200. If it doesnít go, Iíll just be hanging on to it. Let me know if youíre interested.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
