Yes Yes i am aware of the adapter. but not happy about doing. I want to do the dickcepek wheels the back space is -19 so putting on the spacer would just throw me out more. oh well the guy is selling me the axle for only 100 bucks and it comes with a locker already thats why im not saying no.

Get different rims for the rear. :) or swap the axle out.

Even with 100 bucks is it worth it in the long run?
Which diff is it, what gears etc
Some are cheaper to forget about them and get something that works better and easier

If it is a rear axle just swap the axle shafts with a set that are the right length and spline count just with your desired bolt pattern.

One of the good things is I believe that the JK Axles (44 and 30 alike) have a WMS-WMS of 61.9" that will make getting the coilovers in a good spot a little easier, The KJ Rear Chrysler 8.25" is 62.5" WMS-WMS and the XJ Dana 30 some of us are running is 58.5" WMS-WMS. Oh yeah and rumor has it that the ABS sensors on the JK will also work with the KJ's computer, even tho I haven't seen a build that's used a JK front axle yet.
