  • CJ axles in a YJ?

    I've heard that you cant swap the M20 and D30 from a CJ into a YJ. Can someone explain why? I was thinking of buying my old mans YJ and I have a spare set of widetrac axles, a Dana 300 and a T-176 I'd like to throw in it if it fits. So whats the deal on this swap?

    I'm not 100%, but I trust this web page: Jeep Tech Pages
    There's a chart at the bottom of the page that shows the differences in different models dana 30 axle. Look at the distance from spring pad to spring pad, and wheel to wheel on the cj/yj axles. I guess you could just move the perches, but I think because of the narrower axle you would run into steering problems. Sorry, good idea anyway though!

      Well I can't say it will be a quick bolt in, but if you are swaping the trany and transfer case, then it is possible.
