April 30, 2008Depends one what they have under them, if I remember right the Scouts and old Kaisers were both right side drops same as your CJ. Find out what your looking at first, if they are both Dana 44s then is the front a open knuckle or closed knuckle, I'd go with the open knuckle myself. Also are they both the same width I think the Scout might be narrower then the Kaiser.
April 30, 2008Heck yeah. When we gonna talk shop?
April 30, 2008i woulld go with Scout Axles is they are indeed 44s. Some scouts have a Dana 30 front. you will need to regear either way. Somewhere on this site is a post about identifing 44s. Maybe in general discussion?
