D60/9" Hybrid 35 spline inners and outers w/Detroit. 4.86's.

Spring over with FJ-55 springs (7" extra wheelbase)

I figured someone would post some shit like this.

Sunray came in about 2K less on the axles than Dynatrac and they are local, so I can have things tweeked as I see fit.

Front axle was $3750 and the rear was $2450.

Sunray will install their Hydo assist steering for $495 (using my pump and box)

Tie rod reverse steering-$450

All welding/driveshafts/axle install-$1000

Roughly $8K

Ouch, but if you have ever owned Birfields, you will understand how excited I am.

Why did you choose to go with the 9"/60 instead of just a HP60?

The Hybrid is Sunray's specialty. I have been wheeling with 4-5 rigs for 2 years that run them and they are really strong.

I like the fact that you can shave the pumpkin and that is has a bad ass pinion, but the real reason is that when I started this venture, I was going to bolt it into my spring under configuration and it would have been much easier.

If I had it to do over I probabably would have just done HP 60's F and R.

Hell, If I had to do it over I would have done Pick and Pull D-60's and Hummer wheels to narrow it and saved 4K <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">

Oh well, I tend to leap before i look a lot on my Cruiser <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Yep they are bing installed on my rig now. Funny, what you call junk, I call wonderful rust free FJ-55 springs form AZ.

I tried to email you but you have your email blocked on the Pirate page <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

The High Pinion 9" is junk, currie does not recommend them for rigs with over 35' tires.

Tom, the owner of Sunray is designing a real high pinion 9" with a real 9" ring gear.

Exciting stuff <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

i am only HP in the rear, my driveshaft is 40" in the front, no need!

Thanks for the springs!
