But if you you have a ProRock 60F (XD or Gen-1) with our earlier Pro60 wheel end with our crossover steering for a JK, most wheels should not be a problem.

    Even with the 5.5" BS wheel the Pro60 does not offer the reduced scrub radius of the new 1550 wheel end.
    Thank you for chiming in and offering some clarification

    Is that knuckle what the xd 60 comes with or do you have to throw down a little extra?

    While Cindy and I were doing some additional filming for the video we're working on, I happened to notice something that was worth documenting and sharing with all of you. Specifically, while parked and with the engine running, I turned Moby's steering wheel from a full lock to a full lock - back and forth multiple times and after the fact, I saw the following footprint left behind.

    As you can see in these close up shots, you can really see just how much his tires were scrubbing around the steering axis inclination, basically creating arcs around a point and leaving behind a blurry footprint.

    Now, here's what the footprints looked like from Rubicat doing the exact same thing.

    As you can see here, her tires were clearly pivoting in place and leaving behind distinct and well defined prints of her lugs, twisting around a center point.

    The proof is in the prints

    Wow....that is impressive. At first, I thought air pressure could play a role in the marks. It has nothing to do with pressure. The marks in the middle of RubiCats printing truly stay in the center and don't look as marked("scrubbed") as Moby's do. Thats awesome.

    Thank god that I got second kid that delay my jeep project a little bit longer and found out all about this, my mind just blew away! It like, "Hmm, that's true..." then I read more, "Ohh that make sense!" Until last part i saw example of steering turned/tires on floor: Ohh!

    Thank you Wayalife/Dynatrac for all details here and make awesome products become reality!

    Yeah, psi was the same in both tires. Also, they were both Cooper STT Pro's with a 13.50 wide tread. Moby is running a 40 and Rubicat a 37 but that was the only real difference between the two and really, the PRO 1550 knuckles are optimized for a 40. In other words, the minimal scrub you see with Rubicat's prints would be EVEN LESS if she were running 40's.

    Sorry I missed this earlier. The PRO 1550 comes standard if you get the Elite XD60/PR80 package but if you get the XD60 by itself, I believe it is an upgrade to the Pro 60 knuckles that come standard.
