Default axles

the plan is to use a set of pti axles i have replaced the input cvd's with tc3 input shafts so i can use pede shafts but as you can see in the pics they are too wide so i am deliberating on how to narrow them i am thinking some brass tube and a saw should do the trick and i have to do that before i can figure out how long the inner bones need to be thanks for the comments i welcome all advice...paul

Before you hack up the PTI axles, I have a set of Highlifts that Ill trade you. Then you can get the stuff for the straight axle conversion etc....

jetboat thats an awesome offer but they are too wide and much too hard to narrow easily highliftcrawler i just think they look too wide thats why i was going to narrow them the tires sit all the way outside the body even if i fab fenderwells i dont think it will look right?
