Finally eating one ton soup!

Hey guys, firstly an apology as I am terrible at searching. Secondly this will be a thread to document my build, and fish for answers to many of my dumb questions.

Last week while driving home I noticed a grinding noise coming from the rear of the jeep, and about ten miles from home to rear ring and pinion gave up... thank god for AAA towing service

Ive got a dana 60 from an 04 superduty, and a 14 bolt, I've ordered the truss kits from artec, as well as the rear disk brake conversion.

My plan is to run a spool up front with a selectable in the rear. eventually I would like to upgrade to an ox locker in the front.
What have you guys who have done this, what did you do about steering?

Looking good! I just picked up the exact same set for my rig. hoping to get them built up over the summer and under the jeep during winter. Looking forward to seeing your progress.

Looks like you are off to a good start! Not sure if I'll ever get to tons but I enjoy living vicariously through all these threads lol

How did you destroy your current rear end?

That sounds like a personal question.

I am going to advise against running a spool in the front. My turning radius doubles when I lock my front ARB. You arent going to like it much.

The front has selectable hubs, if I want it unlocked I unlock one hub, but I've heard good things about turning with the front locked, and the rear unlocked

I dont know who was telling you that.

Rear will barely be noticeable, the front will drive it in a straight line, especially when you are in the rocks with lots of traction. I'm just trying to keep you from making a decision you may regret all for saving a couple hundred dollars. Put a detroit in it at least.

As for steering, you are going to need hydro assist either way. I suggest just tapping your own box and running a PSC ram and a cooler. If you can live with the low flow from the stock pump you can get away with spending $300 total like I did.

Also, I suggest drive flanges. You cant break them. Yea, sure you could spend the money on Yukon hubs, but that's money you could spend on a locker.
