Why stop at 12"? Wouldn't 16" be better? Don't limit yourself man, shoot for the sky.

Dunno ... I just got a used RockJock 60 with an Electrac locker complete for $1200, then swapped in a Detroit, total $1800. But then it's used ...

Mean Fish is right ... 12" for 40s is a little much. I'm on 6" with 40s - needs some trimming, but do-able.

Hmmm... 38" or 40" tires with 5.13 gearing and a 12" lift. I'd rethink both that ratio choice and lift height. 5.13 is not even near low enough and 12" of lift is, well, not something I'd run. Especially since you don't need even close to 12" to run those tire sizes.

Getting Savvy...

When you have a choice, buy American.

If you are thinking of going to 38's or higher, you will WANT TO HAVE 8 LUG RIMS..

I believe if you get the 5 on 4.5/5.5 the axle is only semi-float, but if you go 8 lug it is full float which is better.

Question is, what year D60 is it and what are the BOM numbers on the drivers side portion of the axle tube?

The owner of Alljeep.com, Wayne Hartwig will work within your budget!!! He is very informative to anyone not knowing much about axle work and will meet or beat any competitor's advertised price on any specific product delivered to your door - even if he sells at cost!

Also, give Wayne at Alljeep and email... Info@Alljeep.com he taught me quite a bit in just a few emails.. very informative and doesn't give you the stock answers you hate to hear from everyone else. He lays it all out for you.

I am doing the D60's in my jeep and he gave me the best price over the other vendors listed on here. He has a lot of options.

Thanks, Robb

First of all if you are pinching pennies, don't do this upgrade. Even if you do the work yourself, you are going to be into it close to $20k. That is not an exaggeration and I don't care if you buy the parts from me or not.

I just went from this: (my old suspension/drivetrain/tires are on my customers' jeep in the background)

to this: (the shop door is 8'..)


39" tires, 100" wheelbase, D60's F/R, ARB's, 5.13's, 16"/14" r/f coil overs, Gen RIght stretch kit (corner/rocker guards and gas tank), etc. My cost on everything was right around $15k and I did ALL of the work. Keep in mind, I'm a shop/dealer and I get everything cheaper than most of you can.

That much lift was crazy. I since dropped it down to a more trail friendly size, like 6". That picture had about 10" of lift on it...

I wanted to post this here as well as tell you privately, so you can hear from others in the community to see I'm not far off base with my comments.

I don't want a 39" tire sitting back there, so I'm looking for a 35" spare with about half tread left. ..Instead of buying a brand new tire that I'll probably never use.
