Anyone know any details. In the June issue of Four Wheeler "101 Places to Wheel Before You Die" page 19 has a column on how Mopar is rolling out a JK bolt in Dana 60 Rear Axel.

Components from J8 export diesel JK
35 Spline
Larger DR-Series Dodge truck disk breaks
JK bracketry & pinion flanges
5 on 5.5 bolt pattern

Available mid-summer. No pricing listed.

I haven't heard that one. It's always nice to have another option available. I wonder if the cost will be reasonable like the JK 44 is.

I saw that in Moab, Dynatrac is also involved. It looks to me that they are using the OEM leaf spring military JK rear axle and Dynatrac is putting the link/coil brackets on it for them.

I believe they'll sell the military 60s with the leaf spring pads on them. The customer will then have to source the bracketry from Dynatrac, Currie, or other companies that will be offering JK axle brackets. These 60s have a 5x5.5" bolt pattern, too.

Update: Goat is right. While the axles come with leaf spring pads and 5x5.5 bp, Dynatrac is working on offering the Mopar 60s as a JK-ready package. Whether this will be through Dynatrac or Mopar directly, we'll soon find out.
