I need to know if a 2wd rear axel fit a 4wd ?????
might end up with 5 lugs in the rear, and 6 up front....
<EDIT> IGNORE THIS, I'M STUPID </EDIT>
The narrow rear would help turning radius, might cause more rollovers too.

No . I have used a 12 bolt 2wd truck axle in my truck , and its under my project now . 4wd axles fit perfectly . Not skinnier than a 4wd at all
Sorry, I'm an idiot, that was meant for the "Can I put a car 12b in my truck" thread. I have more then one window open.
my 14ff was outa a 2wd works fine there isn't any difference
on a 1 ton the spring pearches are narrower tho but u just have to cut off the pearches and reweld them no biggie
the only difference (on 8 lug 3/4ton models anyway) is shock mounts
2wd they hang lower, and may cause shock body to hit axle tube at droop or when using blocks/shims to correct pinion angle
I forgot to mention that with the shackle flip , and a 2wd 10/12 axle , the shock hits . I have seen others with shackle flips that didn't have to do it . But with my 2wd 12 , I run that shock upside down
i forgot about the shock mounts too
on mine i remounted them with the point the shock bolt rotated on the axle so that they are straight forward and straight back instead of hanging down below the axle
this helped with axle wrap as well
