Spools are pretty simple. I wouldn't think one brand would necessarily be a whole lot better or even much different than any other brand. But yeah.. support the vendors. Sometimes they actually have damn good prices.

nah Miller.....


ridin44s - if you didnt catch the suttle hint, weld it and call it a day. If its a trailer queen, then your good, if its a DD, well have fun with either.

My XJ DD has a Detroit and it may as well be a spool. Now if I were a smart man, I would have put an ARB like the TJ has, much nicer on the road and still affective offroad.

Mostly true - some spools for D60's require a spacer between the bolts on the ring gear and spool. Something like 1/8". I have a used one if you need it.
