Bolt in axle solutions

I have been shopping around for a D60 rear axle and trying to decide on a D60 for the front or a D44.

So far I have found two bolt in solutions.

Currie and G2

Both are extremely expensive.

Anyone else out there building axles for our JKs yet?

I have 2010 Unlimited Sport that's going to be running 37s (Wife wont let me rock the 40s) and the D44 front is much cheaper then the D60 front, but would it hold up to the extreme abuse I put on my rigs (I am not light on the skinny pedal)? I already know I will be getting a D60 rear for sure.

Check out the dynatrac prorock 44's. they come with a better housing then the factory 44 and they cost about the same as building a rubi 44 would.

Poser Jeep.

If you think you are going to put that much abuse on a prorock 44 then you can gusset, truss, and put aftermarket ball joints on it. There are a couple of good write ups on jkowners.com about it. Check the tech thread and the product reviews thread.

Dynatrac also has bolt in D60's. But D60's are a whole lot of weight to be running with the 3.8 if you use it as a DD too.

Be aware of the lug pattern issue. Some D60's come with dual lug patterns so that you can use JK compatible wheels, some don't and you will need six or eight lug wheels.

I think Dynatrac offers dual lug pattern D60's, Currie might also.

FWIW, I run 37's on an oem Rubicon D44's and have had no issues (no sleeves or gussets.) I have a Hemi in my JKU and I'm not light on the skinny pedal on the street, but I am off road.

If I ever bend the Rubicon front D44 housing, it's weak point, I'll go with a ProRock D44 housing with their ball joints. Upgrade the axle shafts if required, or when required.

I would stick with a d44 up front and go D60 in the rear. If I was to do it, I would get a teraflex 44 housing run RCV shafts along with a good select locker. To me the d60 up front just isnt worth the price, the rear is more worth it sense its taking a larger amount of abuse. Im looking into getting a full float d60 rear, broke my ruby locker and a $1000 for parts and labor isnt worth it on a junk setup.

07 JK 2D X model with 6 speeds. Full Traction 3" ultimate lift kit. 315x75x16 Toyo Open Country M/T on Rock crawler procomp rim. Ruby dana44's front sleeved inside/outside C truss and rear with 5.13's gears. Homemade rock guards, rear bumper w/tire carrier, oilpan/tranny skid, evap canister skid, light bar, switch pod. Riddler diff covers, Cobra 75 w/wilson antenna, Polk speakers, 10" sub, 2x Amps, Lightforce 240 drive light, backup lights, rock lights.

I am leaning towards the 44 in the front, but man will I be pissed if I brake it when I know the D60 would have been bullet proof. I would never run anything but a 60 (Or equivalent) in the rear though, not with the muddy, hill climbing wheel hoppin off roadin we do around here anyways.

The Teraflex axles look bad ***, but are about same price as the currie. I know the currie axles can take a hard core beating as I have seen it done several times. Teraflex does kick *** and makes good products though.

If Teraflex wants to make a me a smokin deal on a set I would be more then happy to put them through the ringer and report back though.
