JK Rubicon axles are beef so I hope you go that route if you decide on JK axles. I wouldn't bother with the JK Dana 30 front. The JK Rubi axles are perfect for 37's once they are trussed/sleeved.

that anti rock angle is pretty bad, I'll see if I have a pic of mine. I had to cut down the links when I installed mine, took about 1.5" off each one. Mine sits at about a 10*angle from the frame

Jeep looks good at that height tho, gonna be siiiick with those tubes

Not the greatest pic of the AR, but you can get the point....



Cut your links down until you get the arms about parallel (slightly upwards) with the frame

Ouch, I got my quote from our Jeep dealer today. Those beefed up D44 upgraded front and rearends Mopar sells. Yeah. 7500 for the pair. I don't think so.

My opinion on the anti rock is that you want to make sure you have enough travel for the arms to clear everything.

Pointed up, down, angled, what ever. IMHO. You want the arm to work and not contact any body parts or moving parts.

IIRC, the reason they say at a bit of an up angle. Is because on a typical jeep there is less up travel than down. So they say put it in that way. Or straight if you are in the center of your travel.

Just wanted to say something on your build and join the fest.

Look at the pair from 4wd made by G2. They use currie components, and come locked with the gearing you want for like $2500 each. You need to use the steering/knuckle from your front axle, but that isn't a problem.

The price for the d60 is wrong. It is ~$4300 for 1 d60 new. They do come with chromo shafts, and they are bolt in.

Actually the Rock Jock 60 is 2800.00 on the 4wd site. But then you have to put brakes on it. And modify DS.


I have another question. I am thinking about painting my corners ,sliders and tube fenders Body color. Yes or NO?
