So, I had searched alot about this and I have found several threads, but not the photos I wanted and for my application. So here is my Dana 60 install.
My Jeep is 97 Wrangler
-I'm building a custom 3 link front
-I have a 14 bolt in rear from Chassis cab so my width is 63-64? inches
-I'm narrowing my front to be 65inches -stock is 69.25 inches, I have read that less than 65inch makes it very difficult to fit and I would agree, the ballistic mounts go all the way out next to the inner C for it to all fit.
-My 60 is from a Single wheel 86 F350, I bought entire truck for axle and scrapped-parted the rest.
-I'm only stretching the front just a little 1-3inchs, so i can use my stock steering box

Just getting ready
I took some measurements, I know that the Inner C were the weld on the axle tube connects it, needs moved in 4.25 inchs, but this is not your cut off line. Remember the Inner C slides over some of the tube. I made the measurements.
Picture showing the axle tube in the Inner C:
I used my angle grinder with 6in cut off wheel, make sure to use gloves and eye protection.
