    VIDEO : A Close-Up Look at the Dynatrac PRO 1550 Steering Knuckle

    The Dynatrac PRO 1550 steering knuckle is perhaps the single best option that they've made available for their awesome XD60 front axle. As you'll see in this short video, the PRO 1550 is made right here in the U.S.A., out of military grade aluminum and while they are massive in size, they only weigh about 1.5 lbs. more than a factory knuckle and about 8 lbs. LESS than a PRO 60. Of course, in addition to being bigger, stronger and lighter than a PRO 60, they're also specifically designed to significantly reduce scrub radius, run larger upper ball joints and accept a huge 1550 U-joint or Series 30 CV joint. We hope that you'll enjoy our presentation and find it informative.



    Also, if you haven't seen it already, I've made several updates to my REVERE THE STEER thread and contains tests that Cindy and I have done to show how just much less scrubbing Rubicat is seeing with our new XD60 front axle with PRO 1550 steering knuckles and how much of a tighter turning radius she has over Moby, who's still running a ProRock 60 with PRO 60 knuckles.

    That's really cool. Massive knuckle. So I assume this knuckle only works on the new XD60? Does it fit on any other one ton axles?

    The PRO 1550 is designed specifically for the XD60. It will NOT work on any other one ton axle.

    Glad you liked it. Cindy and I were thinking it's probably the best way to illustrate just how big the new PRO 1550 steering knuckle really is. Crazy that's also stronger than a PRO 60 and 8 lbs. lighter - about the same weight as a tiny factory knuckle.

    Could I swap these onto my prorock60? Or are they only for the XD60?

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.
