Were any waggs HP? i have searched!

so were any Waggy 44;s hp? Also, what years are the best for waggy axles? Did any come with a 5 on 4.5 pattern? A waggy is a grand wagoneer right? I found a front axle from a 88 for 200 by my house! Maybe that is the way to go. :-D

no waggy's were hp. waggys are either 5x5.5 or 6x6.5. be careful...they had a full size wagoneer and a cherokee wagoneer. AND, they also have Ford side dumps and Chevy side dumps. Two different widths.....approx 61" and 65"?. Believe 81-87? were the best years. Mine came out of an 82. The good years are disc brakes, D44, and 65". All were leaf spring spring under. If it has flared fenders, then it's the almost fullsize width of 65" or so. Axle can come out of a J10 pickup too.
