Toyota 8" Axles Under Comanche?
« on: Dec 10, 2011, 09:10:02 AM »
Hi, I recently bought a Jeep Comanche (2wd) that has a pretty nice 4.7 stroker engine in it.  The truck itself is a little on the rough side, so the obvious option is to make a trail rig out of it.  I already have a 4wd AX15 and transfer case out of a newer Cherokee waiting to go in.  I was wondering what the changes of Toyota 8" axles living under this thing are?  It will probably have 35-37 inch tires on it, and I just can't justify the weight and size of fullsize axles at that point.  Nor can I see making a Dana 30 live under the front with the power of the stroker.  I planned on getting a Taco style housing (or figuring out how to make the AX15 mate to toy transfer cases.  My major question at this point is, is this feasable at all?  I already have a few Toyota axles sitting around, the front one has been rebuilt, and I have IFS hubs I could put on it.  I also have all the parts to put discs on the rear axle (ifs width).  Let me know what you guys think.  Thanks.

Toyota 8 inch is equal to a Dana 44 in strength and durability except for the birfs, fix that issue and you are good to go.
