many tech ?'s

what is the difference in a high pinion dana 60/44/30 and a regular 60/44/30?
does ox locker make a locker for the dana 60?
would a swap of a tbi engine be a good route to go considering the style of injection?

would appreciate advice on coming up with the ultimate yj build and following through with it over the next few years.

Stop me at any point-350/454tbi,transmission?, would an atlas 2 tc work with this setup?, dana 60's f & r, coilover conversion(4 link rear) or maybe i should read some more before creating a wish list.
any knowledge would help-sure everyone has found them selves at some point dreaming big!!!!!! Thank you all for your time

the high pinion axles have the pinion centerline above the ring gear center center line, so the driveshafts will be higher up on the pumpkin which will help with the drive shaft/u-joint angles. I wouldn't do an engine swap that wasn't injected, multi port is better then TBI but harder to do but bother better than a carb. fill out your profile for us, so we know what your starting with and we can possible help better

Yep, that's the one right there.

That's not meant to be rude or anything, but if you're asking the difference between high and low pinion axles, you need a lot more general knowledge before deciding on the "ultimate build".

I am a huge fan of EFI...especially for the trails.
I just converted my Plymouth 360 over using the Edelbrock Pro Flo EFI kit.
