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.
