That is the axle that their kit is designed around.

I think there are others that will work - but I've forgotten the details.

It has to do with the width, non-vacuum disconnect, the 6 on 5.5" lug pattern that matches what Nissan uses, driver-side differential etc etc... the 80-85 ones definitely have all that stuff right. If you go outside those years you'd better be very "up" on all these details and really know what you're getting

You want the diff on the same SIDE too...

..Makes getting the drive shaft inline with the t-case a LOT easier.
