THE ULTIMATE WJ GRAND CHEROKEE FRONT AXLE SWAP
BOLT IN - DANA 60- 35 SPLINE

Built to your specs here! http://eastcoastgearsupply.com/i-735...-assembly.html
Benefits:
*Ring and Pinion Dana 60- 9.75" vs JK44- 8.89, D30- 7.5
*1 TON balljoints, wheel bearings, Tierod ends, and Brakes
*35 Chromoly shafts 1.5" Diameter- Big 806x joints

*Uses your stock Coil Spring Isolators to give you a smooth quiet factory ride

*The Lower Control Arm Brackets are 1/4 Inch, sway bar mounts and shock mounts are installed in factory locations
*All our production axles are welded in a solid mount jig to insure proper fitment
NOTES:
** Front axle only requires a 6 inch Lift, Radius arm link systems such as clayton kit or other may require upper link to be moved inch on lower link to allow for yoke clearance.
** Front axle is not ABS compatible (However tying rear ABS signal to front Input Signal does eliminate dash lights)
** Lug pattern is 5x5.5 , 6x5.5, 8x6.5 do to the large size of a dana 60 hub a 5x4.5 or 5x5 wheel will not fit over the hub. If you want to truly upgrade your axle to larger ujoints one of the largest failure points of D30 and D44 this is the only option.

How wide is the axle? has it been cut down to the WJ width?
I looked on the website and I didn't find any specs on the dimensions

WJ 60 AXLE is factory width or your desired width.

The Front is coming we are finishing up bracket kits and getting the brakes squared away. We should be able to release the front in 30-60 days and have fast lead times after that. Anyone ready to pull the trigger for the test dummy locally should contact us. Otherwise my wifes bone stock WJ is going to be way over built; she is already sporting the rear 60.

We are very excited about the front and we think WJ owners will be too when they see the price.

The TJ front 60 will be released at the same time as the only difference will be the brackets. Both bracket kits are being developed together. We are hoping the TJ kit will be finished today.

If you need a test dummy for the TJ kit, I'm up for it.

I would test the WJ axles but I'm not local. I can give them a good test though. I would also need a payment plan.

Happy to be a guinea pig though.

Whats the point of 60s in a grand cherokee when you gotta chop it to death and lift soo much to fit tires necessary for 60s? GC= luxury not rockcrawler.

I love how these comments only seem to come from people that have lightly or not modded wranglers with your superiority complex. You have to remember that the V8 HO in a WJ has ALOT more power than your 4.SLOW, therefore, where it may be safe for you to run a certain sized tire with a such and such axle, we would need stronger axles for the same tire size

B/C the D35 or D44HD are not up to the task of being under a Grand in stock form. We repair them all the time for dealerships and private individuals that have nothing to do with offroading.

Add 33's or 35's and they are a time bomb. Or the stock V8 w/ trailer hitch and small boat and your asking for problems.

So what is the solution......... A regular dana 44 is still barely up to the task, and it is nearly the same cost as a 60.

I personally like having leather, A/C, and ARB 60's in my luxury vehicle but thats just me!

But dont worry the TJ 60 will also be released.

Don't forget my comment, ECGS!

AndMountainMan864, who says you can't have both luxury and crawl? Guess I never got the memo.
