Anyone have any trouble with running a
standerd D60 in a TJ. (rear)
When I say trouble I mean oil in the diff!
I'll be running 6in coils along with a flat skid.
I've heard it's hard on the pinion bearing (0il)
This is not my daily drvier but it does see some highway.

Best bet would be to take your rear axle out and do a test fit and look at your pinion angle. If its not your DD then you should be fine with pulling out the sawzall and extending your wheelbase to get a better pinion angle.

mine is at 30 deg and it has been fine. I can't fill it from the normal hole, I have to over fill it from the breather hole to make sure there is enough oil in it.

That's what I am running and I haven't had any problems so far (~3k miles). I'm running the same coils and a nearly flat (rubicon) skid. I "overfill" the pinion on an incline to make sure it gets enough oil. (This could be accomplished in a less "backwoods" manner by moving the drain plug up higher though.)

I have a fairly high angle on my rear axle and the way I fill
it is to jack up the vehicle on one side as high as I can and
then put in the lube. It was my DD for years and I've had
no problem with it.
