The 14 bolts we shave and put on jeeps are 63.5" WMS (DRW).....not wide at all. Full float and with the pinion adjusted at the right angle and a 3/8" pinion guard, it can take an impressive beating. Aftermarket hubs allow other bolt patterns and I run alloy hubs on mine...8 lug with wilwood brakes
Yea you and your fancy Jenny Craig 14B hubs. Come wheel Fordyce with us this summer!

Yep, I have the same axle under the rear of my JK and it is a POS....and worse is Curie's crappy customer service. My other rigs (including my rock buggy) have junkyard tons under them built with top-notch parts and I couldn't be happier.

Jorge Meza why did you walked away from a RockJock on the rear?

miguelitojeep 40" Black Labels have been awesome. I was worried about driving these on the street, but I have at least 1200 miles on them now and have been awesome. One thing thats crazy to me... I mounted them myself and didn't have them balanced. Ride down the 405 fwy at 70mph no problem! Love it. Traction has been great in sand, dirt, rocks and wet rocks. I plan to beat the living hell out of these tires and report back.

miguelitojeep Quick update since... when ever.

-Ordered and installed a badass Full Float Dynatrac XD60 with ARB locker.
-Also ordered some new Milestar Black Label 40" tires. These tires are huge!
-Swapped in new Motobilt 19gallon fuel tank.
-Added DSC adjusters to rear shocks <--AccuTune Offroad huge help with this.
-With new 40" spare on the back, had to swap rear springs to compensate for the weight which made a huge difference.

-Next up: new clutch, B&M short shift kit and MORE wheeling!

He gathered the parts himself. He's got the super charger, some various gages, and a tuner to get it running right. He was planning on running the m90 upside down where the AC compressor goes. He started fabbing the bracket up, and then he got the super charger scanned so he has a CAD drawing for a gasket.

I think he has ~$500 invested into the setup and I'm sure I can convince him to make a deal with you if your interested. I believe you sold me an anti rock and I'd be happy to deal with you again.

yes fan/shroud was all changed.... no more heating issues, unless I forget to flip the fan switch :/

4.0 and 5:38s is a little deep for street driving, but I can hold 75mph without screaming the motor too bad. WOuld love to have more power for the street on big grades and climbs though. Offroad everything is fine.

In the rocks its fine, I can get up just about anything.... Remember I am running 4.0/AX-15/4.3 Atlas and 5:38 gears on 37s. Low range torque is not an issue

Fast stuff is a different story, and I am already looking into power mods that wont kill my wallet, or give me issues with CA smog emissions.
