JKU 1 Ton project

So I told myself I would wait until I demolished my d30 and d44 but I got antsy and couldn't wait any longer. I bought a set of d60's... Front from a 86 F350 HP kingpin style 60, and a FF rear 60 to match. No 14bolt for me, just a little too big and I think ill be ok with 35splines and chromos... So as I said plan as of now is 5.13's, detroits, and 35 spline chromos... Here are a few of my clean up pictures! Cheers!

Cheers fellas, I'm taking the jeep out today for a little hunt/camping trip! Be back in a few. When I start putting it together there will be pictures to follow...

PS I am planning on running 5.13's (have them in current stock axles and like them) but am debating jumping to 5.38 or 5.86 because I have a non rubi T-case??? Anybody running 5.38 w/40's???? Still plan on driving this thing around town occasionally....

I've got 5.38's running 40's and a stock 2.7 tcase. I really wish I had more gear for better control crawling things. I also wish I had more ass to get it moving and allow overdrive at 45+mph speeds.

Other than that I really don't have any issues with the 5.38's. I sure as hell wouldn't go higher though.

I run 60/14 bolt with 5.38's, 40's, rubi case and a 6 speed. It's good around town and on the freeway (75mph at 3000rpm). On the rocks I wish it was lower but I'll be going to a 4 speed atlas soon.

Good luck with your build, I'll be watching.

Sorry for slow process but finally got upper and lower control arm brackets, track bar mount and coil buckets in for front axle. It is gonna be a really tight squeeze fitting everything on the drivers side (86 F350).. Anybody have any pointers or tricks? I'm not going to cut the housing...

Why dont you want to trim the housing? If you were running coilovers it would be a little easier. How much room is there between the inner c and the housing?

Seriously I'm debating putting everything on hold and going to coilovers just try and avoid some of this hassle. Off the top of my head it's like 3 inches from housing to the C.....

I just welded my stuff to the cast . No probs . I've been pretty hard on it . I'm running 41.5s as well. I've got a few thousand miles on it now ... The wider you go with the links the straighter they need to be other wise they will hit your frame . I know this because I have RK arms and they hit. I should have gone with less bend and I could have more up travel .

It's not as scary as it sounds to cut some of the housing out, just measure twice and then again a third time. Did it on my friends TJ when we built his 60 and after a year of daily driving and wheeling, there have been no problems. Or, you can cut out a minimal section for half the bracket and weld the other half to the cast, CO4LO has a good example in his axle build thread.

But all that said,,,, going straight to coilovers is a good thing too
