Just looking at your project blue and wondering where you sourced the axles from? I'm doing a very similar frame-down rebuild with the TDK hybrid but using Savvy mid-arm kit for suspension. I'm trying to decide on axles and plan to do complete crate axles (TJ width). Any recommendation is appreciated.

East Coast Gear custom built JK axles cut to TJ width. Hopefully that helps

yep - perfect. May I ask why JK with reduced width and not their complete TJ axles? It looks great - my basic plan is the similar as your build except swapping over my existing CJ-8 parts from frame up including 258 with MPI, existing SM465 and some t-case solution TBD. I plan on using Savvy's mid-arm suspension kit. I'm just starting though, frame delivered this week...

Jk axles are stronger and brakes are bigger with dual piston
Recipe for D44 front narrow track?
I am installing a 1975 OE NT d44. I want to build a front d44 nt, just because. My CJ8 is 4"lift at maximum, 15x10 wheels on 33", 350cid/sm465/d300 3:73, and stock spring under. I drive trail and daily in the summer. Best options for a High Pinion d44 front ( ford f250? ) and axles...and is there a diy list? I can't find one yet.

That’ll involve using a Ford front HP 44, pressing the driver’s side tube out and pressing in a correct length one, maybe a machine shop can handle it. Then cutting the passenger side down to the right length. Outters should be pretty much the same as others.
I’d highly recommend going wider than CJ narrow track width, Between the lift and bigger tires. Send me a private message, I’ll send you my phone number.
getting ready to restore my CJ8 don't know where to start or best place to buy replacement parts and rubber gaskets etc.
