well seeing how i have gotten hooked on this off roading theing and i need to make my truck better I am loking for suggestions on a front axle

I have found a kit from calmani
www.purenissan.com

it suggests a dana 44 out of an 80's wagoneer

think that would be a good place to start?

I am rather harsh on most things i drive so i want something that will last not just cheap

also if anyone would be willing to "donate" some space for me to prep the axle when i get it, it would be greatly appreciated

and of course give me a hand because i am totally new to solid axles

What side frt pumpkin do you need . . . drivers side pumpkin would be 1980 and newer Wagoneer pass side pumpkin would be 1979 and prior. The 79 and prior Wagoneer(not 2door Cherokee as the Cher ones are wider) axles are hard to find the 1980 and newer Wagoneer axles aren't that hard to find I think I have 2 complete 80 and up used frt axles in my yard right now.

Opposite of a toyota. Passenger side drop. Check out pirate4x4.com, they have lots of write ups in the Nissan tech secton on how to do it.

i have read that article
but from what i have been reading calmini just cant seem to figure out this customer service thing

i'm thinking it might be faster and better just to make my own

IMHO I would try and do the toyota swap rather than the waggy swap. The stock nissan rear end is basically a toyota knockoff. They have the exact same gear ratios and same axle diameter. The only problem doing the toyota front flip is that the pinion bearing doesnt get oil'd very well. But you wouldn't have to fuck around with u-joints, just get longfields or smurfs and be done with it. [cheers]

I think that's what i'll do as soon as i sell my other car i should be able to start finding parts

until then i'm going to go with a 3" lift i found
are add-a-leafs any good?
