I don't believe a 35 sp D60 is strong than a 14 bolt by any means. You can always get aftermarket shafts for a 14 bolt, and I've seen 46 splines for it. Also the 14 bolt is 30 splines stock, and will easily hold to 42" tires. Don't waste your money on a dynarape products unless you have tons of cash to throw around.cj5driver said:what size tire you plan to run may be an important factor in axle choice too! a FF 14 bolt, while stronger than a 60, has a big diff that will hang up on rocks more often than the 60 and the extra weight capacity of the 14 isn't needed in a YJ. Even a 60 has much more capacity than you'll need. Obviously it's the strength of the internals that necessitates the swap. If you get 35 spline 60 stuff, you'll effectively have the same strength axle shafts as the 14, have less weight to haul around, and have better diff clearance. The ProRock is VERY cool but for what they charge for one, it should be able to install itself and bring you a frosty beverage at the same time.
If you're shopping for FF axles, always pull an axle shaft and count the splines. Lots of 30 spline stuff out there that you wouldn't want to waste your time with.

i can understand the wieght thing but cant u shave a 14b to have more clearance than a shaved 60????cj5driver said:a FF 14 bolt, while stronger than a 60, has a big diff that will hang up on rocks more often than the 60 and the extra weight capacity of the 14 isn't needed in a YJ.
My 14 bolt has only 1/4" less clearance at it's lowest point than my front 60. It has been clearanced but not shaved/plated. They are not that different.cj5driver said:a FF 14 bolt, while stronger than a 60, has a big diff that will hang up on rocks more often than the 60
