    Rockon, thank you for the great information and the wonderful writeups/videos that you and Cindy share/inspire/encourage each of us to live, dream and experience.

    Sorry if this is redundant, I went through most of the big posts in the thread and either missed it or didn't see it, what Tie rod and Draglink are you using on Rubicat with the XD60? Thanks!

    As you have guessed correctly, the tie-rod is way longer than anything that's available on the market today and what we have is made by Dynatrac. The drag link is factory with an extended Dynatrac HD adjuster sleeve.

    Thanks...I appreciate your response. Rubicat and Moby are both looking awesome!

Guess Rubicat has gone green. Lol.

    My current plan is Dynatrac Elite Axle Set XD60/PR80 (68.5”) + EVO Bolt-On COs + Coop STT 40s. I was going to go with Chamber Pro IIs, however now I wonder if I should consider wheels with greater backspacing to take advantage of the XD’s 1550 knuckles/wheel ends. Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
    So I went through this whole thread and this is the closest question I could find to my soon situation. I am planning on getting the EVO Double D Pro like Mel has on Spicy Chicken. I am super intrigued on the best setup for my lift. I want 60/60 axle setup so if I do the 1550 wheel ends am I to understand that im good with the normal backspacing of the wheels? Or should I go with 5.5 BS because it offers the best geometry and protection? I hope I said that right. Looking forward to the responses. And as always Eddie GREAT write up!

    Even with wheels that have very little backspacing, you will still see significant steering benefits with the PRO 1550 knuckles. Cindy and I wanted to run 5.5" of back spacing because it offered the most benefits as you seem to be aware of. Is it really necessary? No. We just wanted to take advantage of all the improvements Dynatrac made and weren't available in the past.

    Great! Thank you for the reply. Now as you mentioned in the thread. There are so many wheels out there and only a few offer 5.5 BS as of now, decisions decisions....
