Ok, don't shoot me yet. I picked up a Scout II for free. The drive train is in good condition and I was thinking of swapping the dana 44's into my 67 cruiser. It already has front disc brakes, but rear drums. I was also going to swap in the dana 20 t-case to compensate for the centered rear. The main reason I am doing this is because my current brakes are shot and I don't want to pay for the disc brake upgrade on 10-spline axles. The 44's are a bit wider (2-3 in.) but that's not a problem. Can someone tell me if this is wise or if I'm just smoken' crack here.

given the price, not a bad deal at all. D44's are a cheap/easy conversion, but IMO are an insignificant upgrade relative to a Cruiser axle with Longfields. Versus your current axle, it's a nice upgrade.

Take pics tho...definitely a good writeup!
