Jeep Wagoneer has a WMS of 61"

Other than that I think it will be full width. Only problem with the waggy axle is it is a low pinion not a high pinion.

yea the wagoneer is close to the right width or the 71.5 to 77 bronco are almost the same width also... with any of these though you will be looking at a different bolt pattern. to get a HP 44 the easiest way is to narrow a fullwidth 44 housing.

You can get a high pinion D44 from a late 70's bronco or F150 and narrow it down. You've got lots of options for an SAS depending on what you want and how much work you are willing to do.
