Still trying to figure out what axles to use. I was going to go with a Ford 8.8 rear with disks, a 4.10 and lsd...
But... the massive Dana 60 has caught my attention. No reason in particular, but I would like this to be my one special project to enjoy and be a little different than the rest around here.
Also, I'm going to have this as a daily driver. Ground clearance had never been an issue for my YJ. I know the Scrambler will be longer and thus prone to tagging the odd lump, but I can always raise it more it I want to, later. Those arms will give tons of room for adjustment.
I think I would go ahead and do the 60's, but I would up the tire size to 35's rather than 33's. My reasoning on this is that it is much easier to do the axles up front and never have to worry about upgrading them if you make other changes later on. Plus you should be pushing more torque to the axles running a 327, than those of us who are running a stock 4.0.
