    Hmmm, could have been. We visit them all the time and they may have just hooked us up as a favor. Bummer they don't have something available for everyone.

    I experienced the same thing from Evo and Dynatrac. The 72.5" XD60 and EVO plate seem to be one offs. To go to 72.5" on my XD60 was another $3k because, what I was told, they would have to pay engineering time to make sure it was correct. I saved the $3k and got the XD60 with 1480 outers so I could run the DTD since Evo confirmed DTD doesn't work with the 68.5" 1550 outer setup. Were two bummers but my XD60 is still a frickin' monster.

    My understanding is the additional turning angle of the XD60 with the 1550 is what causes the problem with the DTD. You could either go with a somewhat custom build like Eddie, or limit the turning angle of the 1550. I'm in the process of setting mine up with the Evo coilover's. Still not sure what I'm going to run into, but I'm sure there is a way to make it work.

    Give Dynatrac a call. I think they might be able to help you out.

    Do you recall the process for setting the caster and pinion on the XD60? For some reason I I'm thinking they added addition caster to the inner c's to account for lifted Jeep's when they install them, but can't seem to find the values.

    I would say aim for the 4.2 and then visually look at your pinion angle. Or check your Dynatrac invoice, it's pretty detailed and may have it listed if your axle came that way. Ideally the pinion angle and driveshaft angle should be parallel. If you can achieve that and still have higher caster, you're good.

    Your axle has +6° of caster built into it.

    So it has +6 degrees similar to a stock axle or 12 total?

    That's right! Thanks. Just got my ProRock 60s installed this weekend and was wondering about the angle relationship.

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.
