what are your guys thougths on dana 60's? in my endless seach for better axles i have come across several of them. i understand that they are pretty beefy axles..but how much of a benefit would i gain from having dana 6o's? my main concern is loosing to much ground clearance and will drag the diff over everything. i will only be running 35's..is that enough clearance or is it just better to put dana 44's front and rear. can i use dana 60's front and rear out of a ford. or should i just use a 60 rear, and a 44 front.?
Am running a 60 in my TJ. See the article on my web site at: http://www.hal-pc.org/~chartr/Dana60.html
if you want to read it. Lots of b.s. in there, but some facts too. It is not on my CBrack web site and there is no link from there either.
How does the D60 clearance compare to the D70? How about the 14 Bolt? I'm thinking about upgrading again at a later date (after the 350, doubler, and 38" Boggers). I was going to run D60 front, with Detroit or ARB, but was thinking D70 or 14 Bolt for the rear, with full spool.
the gm ff dana 60 is an 8 lug, is there a way i can change that, like take it to a machine shop and have them change the bolt pattern, or i recall some one offering a kit that changes 8 bolts to 5 or vice versa...
well i will be running a d60 out of a pre 74 jeep pickup.. its semi floating .. with 35 splines.. 1 and half inch axles... and its already 5 on 5 and half.. all pre 74 jeeps are.. mine was out of the 1/2 ton.. with a heavy duty option.. but the 3/4 and 1 tons came with it stock.. 1/2 usually had d44's front and rear.. infact will be putting it under the jeep friday.. just got it painted and cleaned today.. put together tomorrow.. they also came with 4.10's..
