    It's be shocking if they didn't offer this for the JK

    XD 60 Pro Float axle

    You having second thoughts on going full float?

    I'm really sold on doing a FF rear and TF lug conversion on my PR44 front and call it a day for my wheeling and 37's when the time comes

    Dynatrac will make it for whatever setup you like, they will burn brackets you request for sure.

    LOL, no way in hell! I'm already well underway and not turning back. I was just curious if they were interchangeable. They usually answer emails within a day so I'll post up what they say.

    It looks like the axle shaft has a bell shaped end on it and possibly a bigger bearing. In theory it would be les likely to bend flanges(less leverage) but the axle shaft still carries the weight. Interested to see more details.

    It's definitely a much more robust transition from the shaft to the flange. They also mention a different flange. I thought I had a good pic of my bent ones showing the flange area on my phone but this is the only one I could find.

    Its still semi float. No getting off the trail and driving home with a broken shaft. FF is the way to go. I bet its still more then a UD60 FF.

    Wonder how their marketing crew will deal with a shaft of that shape.

    Even if the infamous flange issue is solved, which I doubt, there is still the issue of the front axle unit bearings if you stay on a 5x5. They will fail, after two runs in my case, with any serious use. Did they have a solution for that?

    Hope they make it work, Id love to stay on my pr44 up front but after seeing all the bullshit everyone deals with with the current selection of semi floaters Im just holding off. Dont have the budget or the need to go full float but this would be huge if its a significant improvement on the sf60
