    VIDEO : GO WIDE - Why You Want a 72.5” Dynatrac XD60 / PRO 1550 Front Axle

    For the most part, the only effective way to run really big and wide tires on a Jeep JK Wrangler is to have them mounted on wheels with very little back spacing. Of course, it's practically a necessity when you're running something like an EVO Double Throw Down coil over system and while they may get the job done, they're far from a perfect solution and not without their consequences. Certainly, the more you offset the center line of your wheels, the more stress you put on things like your ball joints, wheel bearings and even tie-rod and this is to say nothing about how they'll effect your ability to steer. It's because of these issues that Dynatrac decided to challenge what we've all come to accept as normal and design a better solution using their awesome XD60 front axle. As luck would have it, Cindy and I would get a chance to help them out and with the assistance of Rubicat.

    In this video, you'll get a detailed look at the design, development and building of a 72.5" Dynatrac XD60 front axle complete with PRO 1550 steering knuckles, setup to be run with an EVO DTD coil over system and optimized for Trail Ready beadlock wheels that have 5.5" of back spacing. We hope that you'll find this video to be educational and that you enjoy our presentation.

    Great video! It's also great to see a company that keeps moving forward in their designs and engineering. Looks like every part of that new axle is stronger, lighter and able to perform better.

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.
