Re: Which axles would you use?

The more I look into it, the more I think I'm just going to do this to my son's XJ for the front axle:

He's only running 31s at present, and won't be doing a lot of wheeling. Certainly nothing hardcore, as this is his only vehicle. But by all means strengthen what he's got. For a couple hundred bucks and some time under the welding hood with him (teaching him a new skill) it's money well spent.

Might never be able to get the money out of it if I sell it- I don't care. Time in service getting him dependably to/from work and school does a lot for that, in my mind.
-89 S-10: SAS, D44s front/rear. 5.7L V8. 700R4 with 4L60E upgrades. Built in my driveway.
-90 XJ 4.0, AW4, 231J: Clayton's longarms, RE 5.5" coils, hybrid 6" leaf pack, 33/12.50/15" MTs, Rancho 99012s and 99624s, Tera HD SYE, custom sliders, BW flares. Rehabbing with D44s, RE spring packs, RE 4.5" coils, and ACOS.
