I have the opportunity to get some used Spicer Ultimate Dana 60s that were built for a JKU.
- 4.88, Electric Lockers F&R, Warn Lockout Hubs up front

They will complete complete end to end including some 17" wheels with brand new 37" Cooper Discoverer Pro STTs.

Here's a link to the axles:
I'd like to do a 4-link in the rear and 3-link with trackbar in the front. (Savvy Mid-Arm Kit) Also, I'd like to outboard my 6-pak shocks from MetalCloak in the process.

Right now this is how Yeticon is built:

  • 3.5" MetalCloak Spring Lift w/ 6pak Shocks
  • JKS Body Lift 1.25"
  • Brown Dog Offroad Motor Mount Lift 1" - Rubber
  • Currie Rear Track Bar
  • Currie Front Track Bar
  • Front Anti-Rock
  • Rear Anti-Rock
  • Currie Ultimate Steering Kit
  • Fox Steering Stabilizer
  • Novak Transfer Case Cable Shifter NP241
  • Savvy Under Armor
  • Tom Woods Rear Drive Shaft
  • Tom Woods Front Drive Shaft
  • MetalCloak Rocker Rail
  • MetalCloak 6" Overline Front
  • MetalCloak 6" Rear
My question is... what will I need to change about them to get them to fit under my LJ?

I can make some assumptions, but I'd rather not base my decision based on my assumptions. I'd rather get a clearer picture of what I'm in for.

Thanks in advance!

I don't know if this helps, I would give them a call.

My winter project is a axle upgrade and I can get a deal on ud60's.
Regardless of cost do you want to go to a full float 60 size axle?

simple answer, cut all the brackets off and put compatible TJ/LJ brackets on them.


I will be doing this in the following months. I am tired of the JKU platform again and will be pulling the U60s and putting them into the LJ. Interested to see any other thoughts.

They should be a good fit. They'll be wider and a different bolt pattern if they are for a JK. Brackets.

They are 8 lug full float axles.

At a good price point compared to the other options. The other options have adjusted prices to better compete with the UD60s.
