dana 60 rear with locking hubs?

Was there ever a dana 60 rear with locking hubs? I'm looking at a jeep and the ad states it has a dana 60 rear with locking hubs. In the picture of it it kind of looks like it has hubs on it too. Here's a link.

Warn made a conversion FF kit that could take lockouts.

How does this affect the strength of the axle? I'd think it would be weaker because it's just more parts? Whats the advantage of this?

stronger: now a full-floater
weaker: hubs go boom

replace the hubs with drive slugs.

Depends on what sort of hubs that thing used. If you can't find a takeoff from a vehicle (if they are 60-size hubs, was there ever a D50 ford that used Automatic hubs?), it's not rocket surgery to make them.

Definitively figure out what hubs are on there, and we can tell you if you can either score some from a yard or start shopping for machinists.

Could you just take the hubs off somehow? If it's a kit that was installed then it could be un-installed.

Where can I find the warn drive slugs? I looked on their site but couldn't find them. I'm kind of interested in buying this jeep but I want to get rid of the locking rear hubs if I do buy it. MNPoser where you from in MN? I live up by Duluth.

if it is your typical "front rotors/hubs on the rear axle" then there are a couple of vendors on this board who sell 60 drive slugs.

All of those are for 35 spline axles, what if this 60 is not? I've been trying to get ahold of the guy who owns the jeep but havent been able to yet.

upgrade the shafts or grab some factory slugs.

or just run the hubs that are on there, they will live for a bit

they "should" be 35 spline, i would think

I run the 35 spline Warn FF 60 kit. I had the manual hubs on the rear for 4 years until I broke them. It would be foolish to convert to semi-float, its just weaker. Spend $155 on some S&N fab slugs and call it a day, then sell the warn hubs for $175! (or keep them for a future front 60 build)

Anyone have thoughs on the price of that jeep? I still havent been able to contact him. How are the road manners for something like this? It would get used out on the trails but I'd also like to go cruising with it or maybe drive it the 50 miles round trip to work.

Nice jeep, how much did you pay? I finally talked to the guy on this jeep I'm looking at. It has a welded rear end so I guess the lockouts are a good idea, just lock one so you don't chirp going around corners on pavement. Motor has 90k miles, fresh tranny. Lock-rite in the front dana 44. I think he said it had a high steer setup too.
