They are usually measured from WMS to WMS.

WMS=Wheel Mounting Surface

The surface the wheel sits on when the wheel is mounted. For an axle with drum brakes, this is the outside of the brake drum. In other words, just about where you put the lines in your picture.

Stock XJ axles are 60" WMS to WMS. XJ's came with a D44 rear in 87-89, they don't have stock front D44's. If your Jeep has 44's, they are not stock.

The D60 is stronger than the 8.8. A lot of 60's are 31 spline, but the ford vans can have the 35 spline.

The 8.8 measures 58 1/4" WMS to WMS.

Eso no es verdad. aqui llegan los vehiculos sin muchos accesorios que traen en USA, por ejemplo los frenos ABS...

I find it strange when car companies do things like that... do they think we wouldn't want to pay for Dana44 axles on Cherokees or that Venezuela wouldn't want ABS brakes on their Cherokees?

On that same line, how come you can get fries with your KFC in Canada, but not the awesome bisquits and mashed potatoes.

Sorry for the tangent. It's cool to see people wheeling in other parts of the world.
