We decided that an overall housing of 48 inches, plus 8 inches of spindle and hub, would net our old Jeep an axle that was 56 inches from wheel mount to wheel mount. This required trimming the long side tube slightly. The pinion is offset and aligned with the transfer case output. You'll want to consider room for suspension mounts at this point also.
