I appreciate any input.
My brother is doing quite a bit of custom work on my 40 and asked that I look into purchasing a rebuilt rear axle for my 66 40. Instead of purchasing one I would like to learn how to rebuild some things myself, is tackling a rear axle (upgrading all components including disc brakes) too much for a beginner? Want to strengthen due to larger, super heavy 9.0 XZL tires

I doubt you will damage the stock rear end with those

It all depends on how patient you can be and how well you can follow directions. Get a copy of a field service manual and be ready to spend some money on some tools you may not have. It's really not super complicated just need the right tools. There are several threads covering the subjects.

Thanks Byron, I’ve searched the site and didn’t find much. Maybe I’m searching the wrong titles, what should I search? I’d love to buy some new tools. Thanks

Well until you can find a paper copy this link will get you a .PDF version. Just click on the "Download" button on the top right of the page. It should be close enough.
