Here's a thought - 609. Since you got the late model Ford front (87-91 due to the short 2" axle tube on driver's side) on the cheap, I suggest an option of a custom front 609 using the inner C's knuckles out on an aftermarket 9" tube housing. You are going to have to step up on the wheels as the hub is the restrictor on the lug diameter.

If you decide to narrow the D60 front, you will MTL cut the longer side down rather than place the pinion in the stock Jeep TJ location and work from there out. Concern with locating the D60 diff is the relative size compared to the stock D30/44.

97 SE - geared, locked, and rubbered for fun
94 S - stock, 27's, build collection started
