In order to keep our budget under control, we decided to go with a donor vehicle for our front and rear housings. We chose a 1977 Ford F150 from the junk yard. That year came with a 9” 31 spline
axle and big brakes in the rear and the front came with a Dana 44, locking hubs, big disc brakes, left side drop, high pinion with 1/2” thick axle tubes, saving us time, money and making it easy to
mount in our project Jeep.
