    Dana 44/60 hybrid

    I'm thinking about making some changes to my 2012 JK. Waiting on my coilovers from EVO. I would like to run 40's and in turn would then likely need Dana 60's. With that said then I have to change wheel due to the bolt pattern on the 60. If i were to run the new 44/60 hybrid i can keep my new slab wheels. Any thoughts on the Dana 44/60 hybrid? Think it will survive with the 40's? Any opinion is welcome.

    i too would love to give this setup a try but, the diff is what is 44 and the end forgings and knuckles are what are 60's. i would imagine you could get the bolt pattern in whatever you want but, i may have to talk to dynatrac to make sure.

    i know its common on the TJ's for rockcrawl competitions.

    I cant imagine it would be any different for the JK. The only thing that would stop me is knowing a true 60 is basically the same price.

    no kidding. it is hard to justify the additional clearance you get at the sacrifice of a much bigger and stronger center section.

“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.
