If there’s a term that permeates the 4x4 world, it’s "swapping." When it comes to hard parts, we swap engines, transmissions, transfer cases, steering boxes, brakes, and axles.
Even though the term "swapping" is thrown around casually, the reality is that many swaps take a lot of planning, persistence, and patience to pull off. A swap gone wrong often leaves a trail rig worse than stock, not better.
If you’re considering a full-width front axle swap into your CJ or YJ, you’d do well to check out the Full-Width Axle Kits offered by Dave’s Customs Unlimited. Dave Seger, president of Dave’s Customs Unlimited, did all the homework required for a clean, successful full-width front axle swap before he and his crew produced the kits. Since the research and development are already done, using a ready-made kit means you can spend your time installing and 'wheeling instead of installing, brainstorming, backtracking, fabricating, and reinstalling. While we respect the DIY route, there are times when using a ready-made kit makes the most sense. This is one of those times.
