    DANA Ultimate UD60 TORTURE TESTED & PROVEN on the JL / JT Experience

    On the 2019 JL/JT Experience, 7 rigs running Dana UD60s took on slick and nasty rocks out on 8 different wheeling destinations across almost 500 miles and... without a single problem.

    Also, it should be noted that 6 of the 7 rigs were running 40Ē tires and 1 had a 707 HP Hellcat HEMI.

    Going back to the reason why I started this thread, on the 2019 JL/JT Experience, 7 rigs running Dana UD60s took on slick and nasty rocks out on 8 different wheeling destinations across almost 500 miles and... without a single problem. Am I saying that u-joints won't break? Nope. Clearly, Bubba broke his and Premier offered to send him a COMPLETE HOUSING to help him out. Are there better and stronger shaft/u-joint solutions available? You bet and I would highly recommend people get them regardless of what axle you're running whether it be a Dana, Dynatrac, Currie or what have you.

    Nice! Pretty cool to have real life wheeling input on other product besides the tried and true staples in the axle world.

    And really, thatís all we were hoping to do - gain real world experience with the UD60. The problems they had in the past seem to have been addressed and punishing them with the skinny pedal all week long showed me that they were up to whatever we could throw at them.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
