Gah damn you two wheel the piss out of your rigs. I am picturing full tilt wheeling on rocks at over 5k rpms. Jesus shit, I wish I had the money to have fun like that.
I probably wheel my Jeep harder than most and have more power than most. Even with the stock motor and the ultimate 60 axles I broke the case on the Eaton 2 pin locker in two. I’ve also ripped a rear vks truss off (my fault/crappy driving), chewed up the bearing races on the new rear locker (Eaton admitted they saw this when you have big power and/or stickies) and warrantied it. I also spun a front driver side tube (3 link off the passenger side beefed up mount).
The ultimate 60s are a great axle for throwing 40s on your Jeep and doing mild wheeling. Fan boys like the guy above think they are the end all be all axle but the rear is still “just a 60”. There are tons of axles out there that are better for a heavy jku that really wheels. (Dana 70, sterling, 14 bolt, Dana 80).
