First of all, this might not be "hard core" enough for here but I really want some help from the people with experience. Right now I'm putting off getting a tow rig/dd due to the fact I wont be on the highway and will have a short commute to work (5-10km). If I do need to go on the highway for long trips or my jeep breaks I will have my girlfriends liberty to drive since she will be doing a correspondence course.
To the tech, so I want to get some axles under my jeep but I am on a tight budget. I want to start getting stuff together now so I can get them on around May. That being said I don't have a lot of experience working with axles. I want a dana 60 or 14b rear and dana 60 (maybe 44) front. Looking to run full width as well.
I found a d60 on a local forum and was thinking about picking it up but have no idea what it needs work wise or cost wise to get it set up. Not sure where to even start with the front. I am only planning on running 2.5" lift as well. Might do short arms for now and convert to the long arms after the summer for my next project. I want to run 37-38s right now, and possibly step it up a bit in the future to 40-42s. Also have the 4 banger right now so not sure what gears to go with either. 5:13s?
Heres the info on the 60
4.56, bored out for 35 spline shafts, set-up for double triangulated 4-link, disc brakes. Spiders right now are 31 spline and lincolned. Gonna need new spiders to weld or probably a locker. Got 35 spline shafts that are too long so you get them cut and splined or buy some beefy ones. Gonna need some caliper brackets, calipers, pads, etc.
