78 Cherokee axle

I have a guy locally offering to sell me a D44 out of an 78 Cherokee fullsize(??)
and was wondering if this was too wide or is it a good start?I know it has a drivers side drop,but am waiting for him to email me back about the WMS width measurement.Thanks in advance for any help!

I am not too sure, but I read somewhere on another forum that some Cherokee Full Sire Axle was too wide. Something like 65 WMS. I could be wrong.

Id stick w/ what we know works, and that would be a 1980 and up Jeep Wagoneer D44.

But let us know what the WMS turns out to be on this axle you're looking at. It may work.

Width is only a problem if you want the rear track to match.

Full width is great for stability.

I love to buy my parts from TRDParts4U.com

Rican is right if it is in fact the Cherokee it will be 65" WMS.

Well the guy got back to me just a few minutes ago in an email and said the measurements were as follows:

WMS=61"
Spring to Spring=32"

So i guess i will take the 2 hour drive out and see for myself!
