D60s with RK 3.5 x factor and coil over ???

alright so heres the deal the old lady gave me the go ahead to order a set of RJ 60's right after the damn lift kit was installed on my rubi.

Questions are:
What brackets will i need to purchase seperatly to make this work

Can I re use the rear cradle and just mod it to fit the 60


and are there any other issues that I may run into.



Now with this in mind ill have 5 wheels with a 5 on 5 pattern up for sale here shortly with less than 500 miles on them, and I will also have both 44s up for sale with 5.38 gears/ C gussets and inner sleeves. Still has the stock shafts as I hadnt upgraded them yet.


So am I crazy to jump right into tons now and sale the rest of the shit or what.

I'd order the rear with the truss from whomever's rear axle you decide to go with. DT, Currie & Tera all make one & it'll make your life a lot easier. If you delete the stock upper rear mounts & add the truss mount, it doesn't add much if any cost either!

We have been talking about the Rk truss and the currie 60 on another thread
I'm debating ordering the currie
Jeremy from Rk told me that they modified one of theirs on a build for a customers rig and it worked Fine
Also I ran into Kenny from river raider yesterday and asked him about it, he said he just Installed a Rk truss on a Tera 60 with no issues
So I'm stil up in the with what I'm going todo with the lift schedule to arrive in the next week or
So, leaning towards giving it a shot with the Rk truss

I would say if your still up in the air about what truss to use go with the currie one that you know for sure fits the rock jock you will be alot happier with the look if your not that into making the RK on fit right cuz it does take some time to grind that truss its thick and also to make it look nice you cut a little the test fit then repeat. at least with currie its plug and play you weld it on then your arm mount then your done. but just my opinion all in all i am happy with the way my RK looks on my rock jock.

considering hell the 3.5 xfactor made my jeep drive the way it should from the factory once the gears are broke in im going to see how it works off road. As for the D60's it was more of a question of what bracketry i need to buy or change on a crate axle to be able to bolt it up to the rk kit i already have installed.
