Finding D60 35 spline rear

I'm curious what vehicle you can find a rear D60 35 spline? I've talked to several people about it and they said that very few came with that. So what is everyone doing for one of these? The 16 spline and 30 spline housing won't take 35 spline axles.

You can get 35 spline locker/carriers for them, Jammie.
Plus you can machine for or weld on flanges that will take the 1.5" 35 spline shafts.
I'm going with an RR D60 pumpkin and 35 spline D70 full float spindles and hubs on my rear.

Had a set of 35 spline axles with bearings and seals made for 273.00 delivered.
Housings are cheap.

Re: Finding D60 35 spline rear

Jeeplvr, that was $2127.18?
Ouch, I figure mine will run me about a grand for axle, detriot, R&amp;P and install.
I decided against narrowing and run it as is. PLus will sell my 44 to help pay for the 60 parts.

Have you priced Dynatrac or Currie units lately [img]images/icons/blush.gif[/img] I think I made out good for what I put in my D60.
Your axle is all ready 5 on 5.5 so all you need is to shorten it and throw in in right?. A machinist buddy of mine is doing the J4000 D60 swap to his jeep and this is what it has cost so far for the setup with disc brakes:

80.00 to shorten one axle (if you decide to shorten)
350.00 for a Detroit
145.00 for a R&amp;P
150.00 to install R&amp;P
20.00 for brake pads
100.00 for both rotors
120.00 for weld on brackets for the calipers
40.00 for calipers
160.00 for bearings (timken set80) that are nearly impossible to find for the Jeep pickup D60. He still hasnít found seals yet.
40.00 for brake hoses
8.00 for oil

Things he has done for free that most of us have to pay for are:
150.00 to shorten the housing unless you do it yourself. In which case proper alignment of the housing is nearly impossible. Take my advice and take it to a shop to be shortened.
Thatís
1363.00 so far if shortened.
1163.00 if not shortened.

The bearings and seals for the jeep D60 are very hard to find and very expensive. He may have to adapt a different kind of seal on to the axles because the stock seals are nonexistent so far.

I could not find a jeep D60 when I built mine so I built my own semi floater with 35 spline alloy axles, ARB, Ford housing ends, Ford drums, Precision 4.10 gears, and 5 on 5.5 lug pattern. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
