Default Dana 60 and Dana 70 in a TJ

New to the axle world. But have been wanting to upgrade my axles for a while now. I keep going bigger when it comes to tires and I constantly worry about the 30 under my jeep not being enough. I know one tons are in my future and know that they are a labor of love to install. That being said...

http://www.greatlakes4x4.com/showthread.php?t=240025

Would the 60/70 combo from this dodge be a good way to go?

I apologize for my rookie-ness.

The front would be a CAD (central axle disconnect). It uses vacuum to separate the two piece axle shaft when the transfer case shifts from 4wd to 2wd. I'm not sure what would need to be done to make this axle work but I was steered clear of these when I was looking for an axle for a previous project.

Pretty sure dodge axles are low pinion and you wouldn't want that

ford hp 60 front, 14 bolt rear. depending on your shopping skills and the condition of the axles, expect to spend 400-700$ for these 2.

the front axle in your link is about 300$ over-priced.

ended up getting a Ford Dana 60 Kingpin front out of a 1988 Ford F-350. Here's the current picture, i've been working my ass off on this thing and I just got the long side axle shaft cleaned up and slide it back in last night. Working on the short side tonight, I need to go pick up another U Joint. The one I got last night wouldnt let one of the caps slide off. Seems like it's
seized or something.



I also picked up a 14 Bolt rear. Should be a nice combination. I need to run 220v to my pole barn in the very near future though. Anyone know any good electricians?
