Dodge dana 60 axles under cj?

I've looking and read in the past. alot of guys go with the axles from under big fords, and even chevy 14 bolt. I know that the dana 60's is a hell of an axle. I scored a 77 dodge with 4.10 dana 60s for nothing. wanted to know if anybody has ran these axles? and if they have. how do they handle? anything would be great.

handling with a jeep is not a valid question. please try again.

Nothing special. There are even kits to run 'em.

Swapping the Dodge axles under the Jeep is fairly straightforward. Lots of info on the net about axle swaps.

As for info about D60s, might want to take a look at this...Dana 60 Info
