so, even tho the other axles are solid axles, their outter hubs where the bearings and all are might still work with the eagles for manual disconnect hubs?? just to make sure im following this right, youro talking about the center hubs you have to turn 1/4 turn to lock/unlock like on my old 70's fords correct?? i guess i havent paid any attention to jeeps. in my book, jeeps are about like cameros, and mustangs. lol. not alot of interest in them.

That's what I've been checking out.

I personally disable all my axle disconnects with a hose clamp and leave them disconnected.

I'm assuming you meant connected. 

I meant disconnected to the vacuum system. One way to leave the front axle engaged is to plumb constant vacuum to the vacuum diaphragm. It doesn't stay engaged if you just unplug it. That's one more potential source of vacuum leak, so the hose clamp keeps the fork extended and axle engaged without any assistance from the vacuum motor.

Carnuck,

I realize that the xj is a high pinion vs the eagle low & long pinion IFS, but none of  that precludes the CAD being the same(It's out on the shaft anyway), for example most YJs are CAD equipped, and they are low pinion

I was going somewhere with that and now I don't remember what it was?

I have a 85 and looking at building a 84 diff for the front and running a manual disconnect with a posi lok system. Anyone tryed the jeep one on a eagle axle yet?
 
I am looking at doing this because my car see so much 2wd time I think the loss of drag of spinning the driveshaft and transfer case would be worth the work. Come winter I can just leave it locked in all the time.

I recall now. Manual locking hub assemblies with bearings from an '80s Ford Bronco II or Ranger

You need VERY synthetic oil to cut friction or the driveshaft will start spinning anyways.
