    17" Method Beadlocks on Dana Ultimate 60?

    Dana Spicer says that 17" wheels are required for their Ultimate Dana 60's to clear the brakes. I've seen Walk Evans beadlocks on them but I've heard that not all 17"s will fit. Does anybody know if the 17" Method Racing 105 Beadlocks fit on these axle?

    Trail Ready, Spider Locks, ATX, KMC, Raceline, MRW, Method, will all fit.

    This is an incredibly wide ranging array of wheels you say will fit. Can I ask how you know that all of these wheel fit?

    I've seen Trail Ready wheels on them, so I agree that some models of Trail Ready do fit but I don't know if that means all Trail Ready models fit. I don't know if they share the same inside dimension or profiles. As far as the ATX Slabs are concerned a Northridge4x4 representative said the 17" do NOT fit on the Ultimate 60's.

    I'd love to get a response from someone who's actually tried the particular wheel I'm asking about, the Method Racing 105, on the axle to confirm it. The last thing I want to do is order 5 of them and have to pay to return them if they don't fit.

    I have built many diesel trucks and the Dana Axles use the same brakes as a dodge 3/4 ton.. So almost any of those wheels will clear with 3.5-4.5" of back spacing.. I ran MRW 17x12 beadlock a on my drag truckImageUploadedByWAYALIFE1459213690.801472.jpg

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
