Whats up man, ya the d60 would be badass in a jeep cj or yj, the only problem is the fu%^in width of them. I know a couple cats that buy three quarter and one ton chevys from late 70s for next to nothing just for the axles, maybe t-case tranny depending of what they are and swaping in. The only problem with this route is the jeep ends up looking like a rollerskate for the JOLLY GREEN GAINTt, now if thats what turns your crank cool! Personaly i think that axles and tires should remain inside wheelwells for that stock look, let them underestimate your jeep. So then, like me you have heart set on a 60 and want to keep tires under the fenders well then you have a couple routes you can take .#1if you've got big bucks you call a company such as dynatrac to make you some custom axles( in my case thats in the next life maybe!!)#2 you like alot of guys concerned with function or form and run full width axles>#3 You go to the local wreakers and find a rear dana 60 out of a 1 tone truck or ford van for next to nothing. VERY IMPORTANT don't waste your time at the yard looking for a an open knuckle dana 60 they are like gold! But the yard will have LOTsssss of d44 fronts and rear 60s full floaters or not. So you found your axles, next leave the yard and go to the local beer store and grabed a case, you return to the yard and hour or so before closing and speak to the cats that are stripping cars. You ask about the axles you scoped out early, the beers help to estabish a relationship with the scrap yard cats. A little small chat about what you'll be doing with axles, and before you know it you'll be talking about 4-wheel war stories(everyones whos a real 4-wheeler or knows of one has a horror story or two!) Now the time you have spent with these wrecking cats was not in vein, you have just established a repor withthese guys.They see that you an alright cat you don't speak sh!t, and your not a GLUEBAG or MOMOHEAD!! So to make the story short you ask them if they could torch out the axles you want and use the lift to get these 550 badboys out to your awaiting truck! Oh ya the issue of cash would best be done the previous night before these guy have to drive down to the yard and fu$%&*in monkey around trying to get the axles out. So after you have paid at the office go see the guys that pulled the axles for you and slip them a twenty this is no big thing because you just got 2 diamonds in the ruff for$150 canadain dollors! Take those babys home, read, get on the net, talk to friends, hit the local 4-wheel shop ask questions ( the beer breaker workers well here too), find out every and any thing that applies to those axles! Because dude your gonna be cuttin em down!! Thats right your gone cut em to stock specs, don't say it can't be done because it can, there are many article web pages that explore this task the first one that comes to mind is one by NUTTER. This cat knows whats gonna on, buy doing it your self you save hundreds maybe thousands of dollors! Good luck
too weird to live, too rare to die!
