Talking Solid Axle swap & Aftermarket replacement axles

Aloha y'all!! I have a quick question to ask & I know it might be a lil' stupid but here it goes......Is it possible to do a "Straight Front" swap? A.K.A. a (S.A.S swap) I was surfing da web & was just wondering if anyone ever did a Solid Ale Swap on their WK's? I was also wondering if there's any way to replace the current axles with aftermarket ones like the DynaTrac axles they sell for the JK's and stuff? It'd be pretty cool to replace both my axles with the Pro 44's from DynaTrac! How much do you guys think it'll cost to do this type of work & I was also wondering if it's even possible to even do it on a Limited WK?! Especially, since we got ELSD's for the front & back......It's a lil' food for thought though & was just putting an idea out there so if anybody wanna reply, be my guest! Aloha & Mahalo for reading!!

Re: Solid Axle swap & Aftermarket replacement axles

Yeah there was a guy in Venezuela who did one with a D30 from a WJ. All of the work would have to be custom done, of course, so you would need to find a good shop if you're not capable of designing and building it yourself. I think you would have to program the QDII system out of the computer but you're in uncharted territory, too be honest. How much money are you willing to spend on a set up like this?

Re: Solid Axle swap & Aftermarket replacement axles

It you could flash the vehicle to behave like QTII (no Front ELSD option) and could connect wheel speed sensors I don't see why this couldn't work without causing massive electronic issues.
