Its an hp44 with cast radius arm mounts and a 9" rear end. Both full width. He got them from someone for a cheap price.

They won't stick out too far on his, he's going to run alot of backspacing to keep the tires under the truck.

yes matchin axles off of a 78 bronco. they were also the same axles in full size pickups in those years. 78-79 I beleive were the only years that the fullsize brnocos has solid axles...

Ha! Yeah.. and you've been w/o your truck for what? 4? 5 months now? I don't blame the kid for taking that part slow.

Work the axles up and have'em ready to slide right under. Keep the downtime down to a minimum. Makes sense to me..

It was a joke......

Naw gil, in 1979 the pickups had weld-on radius arm mounts, broncos still had cast mounts. But besides that, yes, same axles.

no jey has a d44 off a wagoneer. his axle is much narrower than mine. barely wider than orginal ranger track width. also his is off a leaf spring setup donor. mine was off a coiled bronco. mine is also a high pinion axle.

Don't buy an axle with "nothing" in it, you atleast need the carrier bearing caps, or else you'll have to have some machined to fit, and thats $$$.

All used axles are usually sold complete.
