rear axle upgrade, stock width, 5x5, suggestions???

So after much debate(60 vs 44) on the front end, there was an offer I could not refuse. I bought john at impulse off roads pr44. So I am looking at keeping the stock width and 5x5's.

I have a hemi 5.7vvt, unlimited, 5.13, arb in the front(soon rear) 37's, and a bunch of steel protection. I am not trying to break the bank and hopefully under the cost of what I get for the sale of my bike. What are my options for the rear? I am fairly ignorant when it comes to axles so any and all help will be much appreciated

I have been through this same decision making process and have come to the conclusion that if you are going to wheel it, it needs a D60 or a 14 bolt rear. I am still running the stock 44 until I can afford the axle swap. I have had my jeep on loan to a company up in Raliegh NC and they are using it as a template to build a D60 for the JK's. Not sure when they will market them but should be early 2012. Give Chase a call at East coast Gear Supply. 919-672-2705. Tell him Brad sent you. When I spoke with him earlier this year about building one from scratch, It was going to be around $3400 with an ARB and 5:38 gears. 35 spline nitro chromolies.

are they building a stock width and bolt pattern?

Can't you get a rear rock jock 40spline for about that? Says everything minus gears and locker is 2k on their site.

It will be stock width and any bolt pattern you want. If I remember correctly, the only rear 60 in that price range was a high pinion semi float from tereflex. Give chase a call tomorrow and he can give you the specs.

That was the route I would have taken but decided to wait on a full float.

I believe you can get a 5x5 D60 from Currie in that price range.

The currie semi float is in that ball park but the unit that east coast gear is building is a full float. At least that is their intention. I haven't spoken to them since I loaned them my jeep and not sure how far along they are. I will call today and get some additional info.

I just talked to east coast gear and they are building a full float low pinion 60 for the rear. If they can get that done for $3400 before shipping cost, that is a hell of a deal.

The center hole on the 5x5 wheel won't clear a full float. Unless they have some new flush hub design
