  • Dana 35 width

    Would someone here be able to measure your Dana 35 axle from WMS to WMS ? www.jeeptech.com listed the measurement as 60" so I'm trying to verify it. I'm looking for a rear axle with a 5x4.5 bolt pattern no longer than 60". Thanks much.

    8.8 Ford is like 59", Scout D44 are pretty close to that also.

      Thanks, I almost forgot to mention I need an axle that has a centered pinion. It seems most axles I've measured have different lengths for pass/driver side which throws the pinion off center.

        Should be roughly 60.5"
        A D44 out of an 86-90 XJ w/ tow package would be exactly the same

          Thanks again, I almost thought I might be able to use an AMC 20 so I measured the one in my CJ7. The pinion looks centered on the pumpkin but the pumpkin itself is offset.

            Most every axle has 2 different length shafts, but the pinions are close to centered, but never perfect. Not sure why you need one exactly centered?

              I need one that is centered due to this:

              There are a couple of us that are building the same car and have the same issue. The 7.5 that I have is even more offset than the 8.8 in the pictures.

              I ran across the below website and it looks like a dana 35 should work just fine. It appears the pumpkin is pretty well centered as is the pinion. I'm hoping this will solve my issue since I can find cheap 35's all over craigslist.

                dana 44 out of 86 grand waggy 58 inches wms wms stock d35 is 61.5 pinion is offset on d35 about 3/4 of an inch if memory serves and about 3/8 on d44 i belive to the passenger side thats why they make wheel spacers
                a slight compound angle on your dl wont hurt anything the 8.8 is about 2.5 inches offset

                hear are some links to some helpfull sites
