Dynatrac PR60 and PR80 delivered!

On Tuesday morning Fed Ex dropped off my new axles at the Fab shop. They look great. The welds are awesome and the brakes look massive.

I have some pictures and am trying to figure out how to post them but had no luck last night. In addition to changing out the axles I'm going with a custom long arm in the front and King Coil-overs. The rear is staying standard arm for now.

I kind of went all out on the axles. They are have 4.88 gears and ARB's front and rear. The PR80 doesn't really have options beyond gear choice. The 80 is full float and I went to a Dodge 8x6.5" bolt pattern. On the front I went with RCV shafts, Dynatracs PR ball joints, the Big Brake package (14.5" rotor), their crossover steering. stub hub and Dynaloc hub. I also had it left bare of brackets as the shop will be installing their own.

Dynatrac really came through for me on delivery as I didn't finalize the specs on the package until three weeks ago. Since i have to change wheels I went to Hutchison Rock Monster dual headlocks and there was some question whether the split two piece wheels would clear the Big Brake Package. The wheel I wanted finally became available and I had one sent to Dynatrac for a test fit. They cleared and we proceeded. The 14.5 brake package uses a totally different steering knuckle so the massive caliper bolts right to the knuckle with no adapters.

I'll post some pics as soon as I figure out how to do it. I created an album but can't access them on my Mac.

Steve, how did you post the photos? Are they from my Facebook posting? I'm new to the Mac and somehow could not do it. Is photo bucket the answer? If so I'll shoot the photos there.

It looks like we are going to have a weeks delay on getting the King coilovers so we are going to wait a week to start the install - the wife wants to go wheeling in the snow this weekend. King has somebody that is very familiar with putting coil overs on JK's so we weighed it, front back and total, send the info over to them and they are working their magic. I'm also going to have the rear King shocks rebuilt and re-valved for this specific vehicle.

I also wanted to knowhow much the axles added in weight so I wanted a before and after weight. Without the ARB fridge, chain saw and a few other things I was 2820 front, 3320 rear and 6020 total. Loaded for camping with extra fuel and water, tent, cots, etc we weigh about 6800. I'm going to weight the Hutchison wheels and also the AEV beadlocks coming off. It seems like the Hutchisons are much heavier than the Pintlers.

I can't wait to get this done!

That's gonna be awesome with a 6.2, I'm thinking mine is probably about the same weight with all my armor.

For pictures on the Mac just open Iphoto and select a picture. Choose "File" menu then "Export". I just send it to my desktop so it's easy to find. When it comes up as size and quality pick "medium" on both then it will be under desktop when you browse for photo's to post.

Easier than it sounds.

A few things to note. The price is about 500 less due to deleting front bracketry, the RCV shafts are a hefty 1695 addition, there may be cheaper options for lockers than ARB's, Dyna's ProSteer ball joints were 436, the stub hub was 349 and the Dynaloc locking hub was 429 (Warn locking hub is std), and the Big Brake package was 629.

There are no upgrade options on the rear 80 as Dyna threw the kitchen sink at it; but a major cost increase is going full float. As I recall going from a semi-float 60 to a full float 60 costs and additional 2500. After making that choice the upgrade to the 80 was, as I recall 572.

By eliminating some options I could have saved 3038 on the front axle (and keeping the brackets). I could have saved 572 by going with a FF 60 or about 3100 going with a semi float 60. So a 60/FF80 could have been done for 16k and a 60/SF80 for 13k.

After spending the bucks on the 6.2L I decided I'd be wheeling this thing for the next twenty years and I might as well do things right and once. My wife now calls it our "Forever Jeep".

Here is a try at adding a picture. It is the only one Steve didn't get posted. It shows the rear J8 brake and the 8 lug hub.

Yeah basically. I just added things up quickly and I figured I'm in it 80,000. That includes 20,000 for the LS but I got a steal on the engine. Without the screaming deal on the engine it would have been another 5000. I figure to duplicate it, if it were totaled or stolen would cost me 90k if i found a used JK for 30k.

So I have a stated value insurance policy and have it insured for 90,000. It sounds a little of the top doesn't it? As the money was spent incrementally it didn't feel that way as it was done.
