Default 8 lug JK

Made 60 progress last night, cut off the half ass ram mount and did some flap discing. Waiting on set up bearings from zack then I'll be tossing gears in it. I'm loving the size of 35 spline d60 stuff.

All front 60s use the same joint from like 77?-2010+, 1480 series joint.

Except the true ford super 60 found in the f450+ 1550 series U joint. Also in front d70, d80

Cool reading http://www.crawlpedia.com/u_joints.htm

You could probably 3D print some out of plastic and they would be good enough for your driveway lol

I drive the shit out of it on the streets.....just 4 wheel drive...kind of has a binding issue...for some reason....

I broke front shafts, hubs, u joints. It was limited slip....so that saved me a lot of breakages. I plan to do a lot of wheeling this year. Gonna hook up with Markus and do twisted trails, and badlands.

Twisted isn't worth the trip from where you are. Just go rocks n valleys

Bought a house about a month ago so I haven't done much work on my Jeep, just been driving it around. I do have some updates though.

Got my kingping gutted, stripped and prepped for gear install hopefully this weekend. Artec gave me a full truss and ram mount kit for next to nothing so that made me happy. Hoping to get everything installed by the blessing but I have about 7-8 gear installs I have to do by the blessing so I see some late nights in my future...

Also did a full emissions delete on my truck, 5" downpipe back full stainless straight pipe exhaust, and installed a Mini-Maxx. Couldn't beat the prices. I gained about 7mpg highway and 3 city which I didn't not expect at all. I'm excited to see how much better mpg I get towing.

Last week I was hit on the highway and the lady rolled her van, flying out of the moonroof due to not wearing a seatbelt. That was interesting to watch...

I also bought a fifth wheel this week, no pics yet though. It's a 2000 that has been stored in a climate controlled barn its whole life so its in amazing shape, still has factory stickers on the frame rails.

i just bought the solid knuckles for my 60 with the artec keyway, 6 stud arms. Mounting my steering double shear. They gotta weigh at least 10lbs more per knuckle with all the extra webbing on them. I ordered them from Jacob at Off Road Anonymous. hooked me up with a good deal.

I also disagree with the statement about twisted trails being a waste of time. If you haven't been yet, Go. They are undergoing new management that is improving the park and camping areas. Also very open to suggestions. There is new stuff going in before extreme truck as well.

If you want an extra set of knuckles i have mine for sale. I'll make you a killer deal on lol
