Here we go! This is what I call feedback! 10-4 on the forged axles, from what I can tell, no heat treating either. The connections will need total boxing that fit the contours of the I beam for strength and plenty of bracing. I have a good friend who is a metallurgist as well as a professor at a university close by. He said if I bring him a sample of the axle, he can test it and tell me the specific alloy used. Great idea with the Jeep axle, even if it is a little narrow, there are ways to get around that using backspacing, or even lengthening it a bit. I am pretty sure you can buy weld on knuckles for the ends and use a piece of pipe to custom make a specific length, then just use the spindles. It seemed like this thread was turning into a mud slinging match but now it seems like it will be useful. Thanks guys!
