Re: My new D60 (pic)
Thanks for the compliment. I painted everything with POR so it looks good for now.
I bought a front 44 and rear 60 guard from Im not sure who makes them.
My drive shaft is at 23dg and the pinion is 19dg. This is simalar to the setup I had with the AMC 20. It works real well with or without the jeep being loaded down.
I now have a 15" CV drive shaft and the TFC output shaft is level.

Nice installation, it looks like it was meant to go there! Was it shortened to CJ narrow-track specs?

Any problems with the gas tank?

Re: My new D60 (pic)
Its not narrow track specs but close. 54" wheel to wheel.

I took the D60 on its maiden voyage yesterday. I didnít abuse it too bad but did put it through its paces.
Its just comfortable knowing I could never break this thing vs. the eerie feeling I got every time I really wheeled the AMC 20.

Does look awesome, wish I had a strong axle like that. Might go to a 14 bolt some day.

Re: My new D60 (pic)
I looked at all kinds of rear ends before I decided on the D60.
The 14 bolt is huge and looked like I may have clearance problems with the lift I have.

The 9" is a good rear but I just couldn't see much of an advantage over the AMC 20 except for aftermarket parts availability. I have had both of them apart and just donít think it would have been the way to go for me plus I just like Dana differentials.
