Question on D60 for TJ

Me and my buddy have a lead on a D60 for his TJ. The guy says it's about 6" narrower than a fullsize, so that could be around the right width for what he wants. Also, it's full floating. Bad thing is it's got 19 spline shafts(i think that's it). The guy said we could get some 35 spline ones and put them in without much modification or than new side gears and stuff. Is this true? Would this axle be worth getting? What should we look for?

Jammy, I believe it has to be a HD version to fit the 35 spline stuff. Other wise you have to drill the tubes to fit the 35 spline shafts.

Hopefully someone else can confirm this though.

Re: Question on D60 for TJ

if you are talking about a rear axle... stay away from the 19 spline stuff.. the 35 spline shfts will not fit through the spindles that are welded on the end of the axle tubes.....
the 35 spline shafts are $300 from moser.. you can get a whole d-60 for that.

Re: Question on D60 for TJ

Can he upgrade to 31 spline(if that's an option), or is that not going to be worth it strength wise?

Re: Question on D60 for TJ

So he's thinking about getting this axle, even though it's only 16 spline. It's stronger than his d35 that's in pieces, it's the right width, and has the right gears. Plus, it's only $50. Should we erase this from our minds as an option? What else would be a good swap? Would it be worth swapping in a D60 semi-floating 35 spline axle? What models can we get a 35 spliens FF from, and how much would it cost to narrow? Thanks!

Re: Question on D60 for TJ

its $50 because its only worth the price of scrap metal.
whats wrong with an 8.8?
thought about a narrow 14 bolt??
how big of a tire are you thinking of going?
its no joke welding all those tj brackets on an axle... im afraid of it...
there are tj d-44's for sale for about $900

Re: Question on D60 for TJ

6" shorter than FS doesn't really say that it's 60" wide, you should measure to be sure. Keep in mind your bolt pattern. A FF D60 will be 8 lug, and nearly impossible to convert to 5 lug. A SF would be easier, and accomodate the 35 spliners better.
