toys under a sammi is easy, the difference between the spring spacing on the 86-95 sammi and an early toy is about 1/4 inch per side. so you can put yj/cj springs in and longer shackles then just grind out the center pin hole 1/4 inch inwards each side, then shell out for a steering solution, such as aqualu steering arm, ott, sky high steer.. while you're at it, put power steering on the prick.

cheapin out is aqualu, 300 bones for the arm, then you gotta make up a new drag link. not much for that at all.

you could cut em off, but it's easier to grind instead..

it would cost a new set of u-bolts at about 8 bucks a pop, you'd need 8 of em, make some springs plates outta 1/4-3/8ths plate, ... cheap... nuts washers maybe 10 for everything.. drag link, dunno ask around for a deal.. if you buy new spring pads they're about 8 bucks at most trailer supply stores.. don't forget new rims, toys are 6 bolt.

oh btw.. 300 bucks? want some lube with that?

ah you never mentioned geared. normally for 4.10's honestly 200, 250 if they're in really good shape

the gears alone are almost 600.

a wrecker.... you're kidding right? don't get axles from a wrecker. they will do you dry, there's always a ton for sale on the other site. or someone someone else knows will have a set, or know of a set. i paid 100 for a pair last time.
