J20 axles in a J10 - Driveshaft ?
Do my driveshafts need changed if I go to J20 axles?
I'm sure the front will work but what of the back?
What if I go with a 2"lift and the J20 axles?
How about a 4" lift with the J20 axles?
If I go with a 4" should I swap the pitman arm? It needs to stay highway speed safe as well.
This Honcho may be in Ouray next month. Currently it is all stock. This weekend it gets a thorough going over. If my springs(2 leaf up front) don't pass my inspection then I'm buying new springs. I really don't want to lift this truck much at all but would really like to run my spare set of J20 axles in it. That would allow me to slap on my 33" MT tires from my 1981 J20 for wheeling. I'm thinking 2" is enough clearance for moderate wheeling.
I'll then buy a set of street friendly 33" tires and mount on the slotted mags. Then I can interchange as needed.
I have nearly new shocks on the truck now is another reason not to go too high.
The Chero is going SOA so it will be my main hard wheeler this Honcho is just a stand in for now.
1980 J20 Utility bed truck. Factory cab and chassis truck. Many new mods for it but it will look all stock.
1985 J10 nothing special just a nice clean stock truck.
1977 Honcho "Blue" 401/400/quad. Under going major upgrades.."This is Not Your Fathers Honcho", it may not even be a Honcho anymore when done.
2017 Challenger. Very jealous of the Jeeps.
