    Anyone know the measurement from wheel mounting surface to wheel mounting surface of the stock fzj80 front axle?

    Was just staring at the two front dana 60's I have and got to dreaming. Kinda difficult to do anymore than that since I don't even own a cruiser yet.

    I have yet to even see a birfield in person and I'm already cursing them.

    Funny that you selected this post to ressurect. I'm guessing Lars quit cursing the birfields pretty soon after he bought his 80 and discovered the blown head gasket.

    (Just having some fun Larry.... :D )

    If you're just wondering how wide the fzj80 front axle is, it's 63" wheel mount surface to wheel mount surface.

    Sorry for bringing back the dead. Just reconfirming as I just measured mine....out of a '91 FZJ80....it's 63" WMF to WMF. I've heard all sorts of numbers searching Pirate. Wish it were wider.....may sell this now and build another front 60 instead. :(
