Default D60 in a YJ

Looking for a D60 for a YJ, pass side drop.

Obviously I need a Chevy or a Dodge, but is there a favorable year range that I would look for in a junkyard that would be the cheapest and best?

I know this doesnt help much but there is an old f350 for sale on M45 with a 60 under it.

Just incase you want to run a different t case.

I would stay away from a dually front axle .

Chevy seems to be a little easier to set up and get parts, but may not matter.

For what its worth I have a 79 Ford Hi Pin in my rig with a pass side drop

You can also flip a dana 300 if you find a Ford 60

Flip the D300 and bolt in the 78-79 HP Ford D60 SOA, as seen in Leanz's build thread.

That is cool with the HP pass drop, I don't have those kind of skills. I would flip the 300 if I found a ford, but they are super expensive everywhere I look.

No one will come off one for less than $800. I would like to spend less than that.

$ 800 bucks is cheap its kinda like buying a new set of tires ,the price is the same no matter were you go you may save a few dollars here or their but in the end its going to cost you .


A 60 is price less.
The money pissed away on a 44 is not worth the baby steps.

I know of several people that could have bought Dynatracs new for what they have dumped into there 44

I fall into that category....

you can make the weak parts strong but in the end its the parts that you can't do anything about that will fail or hold you back.

Yes, a front Dana 60 will cost you. That is all.

I don't know FlamesFearMe's plans for this Jeep, but the comment above depends on the application, of course. The HP F-250 D44 PP mentioned would be more than enough for a LOT of people, despite what all the D60 bandwagon peeps say.

myself personally, a 44 front and 8.8 rear will be plenty strong for how i wheel.



60s are overrated.

i will not go deep into this again w the 44 crap.. if you like to drive down the road and throw your money out and just sit and watch when you go wheelin, just stick w the 44. pete will not be happy w that because he wheels w the same group i do. we dont sit and watch!! pete call coop ,he has some 60's in the back of his garage but i dont know if he will get off one. we already had this discussion 2 weeks ago in the lounge drinkin....
