I got my selectors in today. They appear very well made. The gears are chromoly, the selector is aluminum, but the spring retainer is.... plastic. I don’t think it is load bearing at all or else they would have made it out of metal. The Yukon Hardcores I installed in my friend’s d44 seem beefier, but Yukon does not make a SD one yet. I’ll see if these live with 42s. Most likely will. The gears are very nice in these.

The Super60's are a little bigger in some area's than the regular 05' and up 60's. Here are a few more pics of a super60 that I am converting to 8 lug (metric):

[IMG][/IMG]

Yes they do have 1550 ujoint's

These axles are very wide though. Even after converting it to single wheel 8 lug wheel hubs, it will still be about a 79 wms.
Very interesting/informative.

Another option bolt pattern wise, Currie is redrilling the unit bearings and rotors on these to 8x6.5 pattern. I don't know the cost as we haven't had one done as of yet but a customer was telling me about it.

If you are content with unit bearings, ORU makes a high steer knuckle for the Super Duty axles that goes for $259.00. Most of the unit bearing failures are from high speed, dedicated trail rigs usually don't have those issues. The only people who will suffer with the unit bearings will be the rigs that pull double duty between trail and daily driving.

Also, why is everyone so intent on getting rid of the 8x170? Carry your own spare(s) and you'll never have an issue. Yeah wheels are a little harder to find, but it's less effort and money than swapping out everything and then re-converting to 35 spline outers.
Good info fo moi!

You can also tell by the pinion nut. 1 5/16 is D60.....1 1/4 is D50. You can also tell by the diff itself. The 60 measures about an inch longer than a 50.
I are lovin' this thread!

Though, once the OEM lockouts are removed there is room to use longer, custom stubs for ease of machining and full hub spline engagement. Here are some custom Yukon 4340 stubs I had made.



And finally, just for the sake of getting some pics in this thread, here are some of my high steer set up and hubs (redrilled 8x6.5)





Very nice!

Will these super 60 gears be labeled 'super 60' when ordering them from R&P companies?

Good info.

Visit Moab and similar places as well.


I'll be towing a HMMWV trailer with a 1,000lb truck pop-up camper.


I have an '87 Sterling dually axle for the rear (with stock brakes).

My plan for the front is a stock '05 Dana 60 with Branik (or equivalent) UB 8 on 6.5s.


I'm guessing my other option (probably way cheaper too) is to drill out stock rotors to accept said 8 on 6.5s.

Thoughts/suggestions?
