    Use it to take up space on your next concrete pour, might save a half yard of concrete expense.

    The 20 can be a good Axle for light Jeep and not too large of tire. You need to do certain things to them to make them reliable but if it was free I would consider it as an option. They have a good size ring gear.

    That's about all they got going for them. If you smile at the housing, they smile back, the bearings are small and the axles are two piece. Not worth any effort in my opinion even if it's free. More often than not you paint yourself into a corner eventually with something like that and can't get back out of it without losing money.
