I've tossed the idea around of running the rear with my stock front and putting 38's under it.

Right now, I'm weighing the benefits of getting the front, too, when it's released against just putting in some RCV's and some gussets, etc. in the stock 44.

Decisions, decisions...

I think if you're easy with the skinny pedal, then you could run 40's and probably even 42's on them (front and rear). Not sure how far I'd push the front 44 even with the rear 60.

I will have to find out if they are american made or not. I have a customers rock buggy with them front and rear and will be taking the front apart to replace a seal so will look it over good. I am in the process of installing curries in my jk right now. My pics are on the shop computer so will have to post them Monday. It was a hard decision for me being a dynatrac, teraflex and currie dealer. But I think I will really like the curries.

I think that skid is a great deal, and I think currie is the only one that includes it. Honestly I went with the curries because I am able to get a better deal on them.

I think they all do the job pretty well when it comes down to it. I was just looking at superiors catalog that came the other day and that super 14, if my memory serves, looks pretty damn sweet too. Lots of options and thats the cool part.

From the product description.

100% engineered, designed, and built in the USA.

Most people aren't having problems with the rear. And if they do, I'm sure they have a problem with the front too. I can't see upgrading just the rear unless you're putting a lot of weight back there.

BIGEN I agree with your question, I haven't figured out why Teraflex D60s aren't more popular.

Being American made AND cheaper than Curries & Dynatrac, and having Teraflex's steller reputation for their lifts and other products, why aren't their axles more popular ??

Dynatrac may be recognized as being top-notch, but their price is beyond high. If anyone has Curries D60, why did you pick them over Teraflex ?

x3, doesn't seem like they push them much either, maybe that's the reason?

Because 90% of the D60s being sold for the JK are front Axles. It really makes no sense to put a D60 in the rear (replacing the HD 44) and leaving the D30 or the Rubi Wanna-bee 44 in the front. Unlike previous model Jeeps that came with the horribly weak D35 in the rear, The JK rear axle is pretty damn good from the factory. Currie offers an excellent product with many extras (high steer, CM tie rod, Johnny joints, bigger brakes, skids, manual locking hubs) at a realistic price point, so your average shopper goes that route.

Then when people go to upgrade the rear at a later date, they don't mix and match axles and stick with the same Manufacturer. I think Teraflex made a big mistake by not coming to market with a front axle first. Had they done that, they might have half the JK axle market share right now.

If you have 60's why couldn't you run 40's?? the Dynatracs i have i was told i could easily run 42's and a 5.7L Hemi without fear of breaking...

If Currie or Tereflex rate them to only 38's then I would be leary of how they are built??

My honest opinion is the currie setup can easily do 40 - 42" tires and I know guys are doing it. I can't say much about the tereflex setup however.

A local dealership gives our club a pretty good discount on parts. He quoted me 3500 for a Teraflex rear 60, ARB, 5.13's, tax and delivery included. Not a bad price but Teraflex is having a hard time with production. The parts guy said it would be months before I could expect delivery

As of Jan 26th direct from TeraFlex...

...the fronts are taking much longer than we had wanted. I actually don’t expect them until November. The main issue is we are short on man power in the development side of the business and we had some axle shaft setbacks on the rear axles. Even our rears are out about two more months.

Cheers. Annoying for them and many of us that respect Teraflex's quality but looking for a reasonably priced D60. Will be watching this thread even closer : "River Raider - Heavyduty JK Axles " https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=21999

If anyone is shopping for axles give me a shout at [email protected] I am a dealer for all three being discussed and will get out a quote with shipping direct to you.

I think the setbacks with teraflex are one of the biggest reasons people are going other routes. I love the teraflex product line, sell alot of it and run it on my jeep. I went with Currie's for several reasons, but one being they are great people to work with and I got them in pretty quick. Finally have them buttoned up and will be finally driving the jeep again.
