Small, solid axles .....

I'm trying to find small powertrain parts for a go kart project.
I've been looking for 1/4 ton manual shift, 4x4 trucks / parts for sale.

Does anyone know of any front drive axles other than the dana 28 or dana 35?

I need to get them cut down, the go cart is 48" wide

I literally just spent 4 hours looking through ads and stuff, I need to find a better way.
Is it true that some vans have front drive axles instead of transaxles?

Well lucked out, found solid front axle, matching rear axle, transmission, transfer case, driveshafts, steering box, wheels, tires, and a slough of other odds and ends for 500$. Manual hubs too.

Best part is, it's all in great condition, and was stored indoors.
The guys toyota truck just fell in half one day ?!?! (lol)
I guess they have bad rust issues.
He was going to save all the good parts and try to build another truck, but lost interest. Everything still has paint on it, minimal rust at all. Rims look great. Funny the truck rusted in half and fell apart, and all this stuff looks great.


They look like it will be easy to cut them down to 48" wide or so for my side by side go kart.

I guess I'm lost as to what axles you got. I was thinking Samurai axles might fit your bill.

I got solid front and rear axles off a 1983 toyota truck.
They are 55" from hub face to hub face, and fit perfect.
Also came with a 5 sp manual, and transfer case, and all the rest of the drive train.

The solid axles will be real easy to mount.
