Dana 60

I've used the search function and haven't really found the info I was looking for, maybe Im not using the correct wording.

What is a good company to buy a Dana 60 from? I have a 95 YJ. I've heard of Dynatrac and Teraflex but has anyone ordered from them or is there a better company?

Thanks!

I guess I would go with Dynatrac. I don't have the cash for a new axle so I would go to a pull-part.

Sorry maybe someone with deeper pockets can help.

What car would be ideal for pulling a Dana 60 and how modification would it take to fit a YJ?

Just wanted something bullet proof. It will be sitting behind a 5.7L hopefully, but I probably wont go any bigger then a 35" tire.

I'd go with a bigger tire than a 35 with a Dana 60 if you're wanting to wheel it. The pumpkin on a D60 is going to be dragging a lot if you're not running a bigger tire.

I agree... if you want 35's... just run a 44 front with chromo shafts... and since they will be behind a 350... make sure you get the one of the brands with a good warranty

I wouldn't run 60's until I was running 37's or bigger. I am running 35's a dana 30/8.8 and haven't broken them yet. We don't have the most extreme terrain around here but I like to play in the rocks. I have a 2.5 and am easy on the pedal. I think 44's would be plenty of axle for you.
