Forgive me if this has been covered somewhere, since I know people have been mixing and matching TTB parts for decades now. But years back R.J. extended his D35 beams in a way that achieves something I have not seen anywhere else, and I need to get some clarification. I don't have much first hand experience working with beams, and most of what I know is just from reading, so bare with me. The below thread preceded his actual build thread, but explains his goal of using a combination of stock D35 and D44 TTB axle shafts to avoid having to cut and extend any to match his extended D35 beams. https://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=208533 Essentially what he did was extend his beams 2.25" at the beam pivot ends for an overall track width increase of 4.5", and then used a stock D44 passenger side shaft which is 4.5" longer than that of the D35. (This moved the center slip shaft 2.25" to the driver's side relative to the beam pivots. He did end up trimming the splined end of the D44 shaft down about 3/8" so it wouldn't bottom out at droop, but for all intents and purposes, I'll call it stock.) Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe he used the stock D35 passenger stub shaft. If that is the case, my end goal would be to run the D44 knuckles/hubs/brakes by modifying the lower BJ holes. So with regards to axle shafts, the only difference from his to mine would be the D44 outer stub shafts, correct? I made this quick drawing to hopefully better illustrate what I'm imagining. The red is D44 stuff, the blue is D35 stuff. D35 beams, D35 pumpkin obviously, D35 knuckles in blue on top, D44 knuckles in red on bottom. I hope that all makes sense. Thanks!
