    I think there was only 1 year that a cj7 might have had a Dana 44. Corporate Dana 20 was in use by the time the 7 came along. Intermediate cj5 would have had these but not with discs up front.

    Must be something about the width that would make them Scout axles but seller doesn't give a measurement and I can't tell from the pictures.

    If he was asking less I could get interested enough to go look, but not at that price.

    I have a couple sets of Scout ll axles, but they are D44 front and rear. They are a but wide for our CJs, but perfect for my Willys wagons. I didn't know Scout used a D30 up front.

    Thanks for the affirmation, Wally. I hope I can remember that year next time I need to.

    They may not have used a 30 up front Donny. I'm not sure. I guess it was the 27 that they used front and rear in the early years.

    600 may be a bit steep but the tires have some value with lots of tread left. He might not be too far out of whack really. Too bad they are 3.73 and not something lower.

    I did a little digging...

    "A heavy-duty Dana 44 rear axle was offered starting in 1966 and they were often used with the V-8-optioned Scouts. These versions were a bit wider than the earlier Dana 44 axles. A Powr-Lok (and later a Trac-Lok) limited slip was available in some axles. As time progressed, a Dana 30 front axle was introduced to replace the Dana 27, and it was later widened to match up to the wider rear axle in use. Gearing was again 3.73:1, 4.27:1, or 4.88:1 ratios.

    The early Scout II models came with front drum brakes with disc brakes standard starting in 1974. A front Dana 44 axle was offered as an option over the standard Dana 30 starting in 1972 on some models with the V-8 Scouts typically getting the front Dana 44 as standard. Gearing for the Scout II ranged from 3.07 to 4.27, depending on engine and transmission."


    So according to that, a Scout D30 with 3.73s and disc brakes was possible, but it was within a narrow window of time and options.
