    Oh yeah, of course, I'd love to run the DTD
    But, I'm (aka having my shop) not pulling out my Double D Pro, and dropping 12k in suspension right now.

    The entire point of my original post was, is anybody else running 37's on a Pro 60 low pinion FF, like the one in the 60/60 kit, and is it a rock anchor/should I do the jump to 40's now, or wait

When it comes to daily driving or even for rock crawling, you'd be fine with the bolt on coil overs.

    EDIT: LOL! guess I was a bit slow in responding.
    Thanks dude

    Yeah, no bomb runs for me, just crawling, and DD'ing, I had a Raptor for that, and hardly used it, spent more time in my JK...

    The entire point of my original post on this thread was to ask if anybody else is running 37's on a Pro 60 low pinion FF, like the one in the 60/60 kit, and is it a rock anchor/should I do the jump to 40's now for pumpkin clearance , or wait
    Everywhere I search people are running the PR60 high pinion in the rear, which is not the same.

    The ProRock diff housing has about the same amount of ground clearance as a factory Dana 44. Going low pinion would leave your pinion yoke more exposed to the rocks but that might not be enough to matter. The strength you'd get from running on the strong side of the ring gear is probably a bigger benefit to have.

    Also keep in mind that this is a brand new axle, just released last fall. I don't know if anyone is even running it yet.

    Any other options I should be looking at compared to the below layout?

    Looking at the 44/60 package, the pics show the front 44 has a 5on5 bolt pattern and the rear 60 has the 8on6.5 pattern. I'd want them to be all the same.

    The can be if you want them to be.
    I had the option on what bolt pattern I wanted when I called and ordered my 60/60 set.
    I chose 8x6.5

    Being that it's a semi-float setup, you should be able to custom order your rear 60 with 5x5 just like a Trail 60. Not sure how that would effect the price but that should be an option or I would think. I believe that Moochie here on the forum is running that setup now.

    Can't wrap my head around these prices yet. What were they like before these deals price wise for a pair? 10k seems like so much money. Please pardon the ignorance.
