    Default YouTube build of my complete axles being replaced with Dynatrac d44 and d60

    So I wound up doing a major overhaul...

    Ended up totally replacing both front and rear axle assemblies/differentials plus both driveshafts and also regarded to 5:13 and went from 33" to 37"

    Went with Dynatrac axle assemblies, the pro rock models, used RCV axles up front

    Got Goodyear MTR/K's in 37"x12.5"x17"

    I basically replaced everything from the tires and rims on up stopping at the transfer case, but I did keep the factory brakes, did replace the brake lines with stainless braided ones that are a bit longer

    The video covers 3 1/2 days by taking one picture every five seconds

    If your a Jeep fanatic you'll probably love it, otherwise it'll put you to sleep!

    I hate to be "that guy" but the question still burns with me- why didn't you go with beadlocks considering all of the other money that you threw at the truck?

    ATX Slab Beadlocks were on my list of key pieces, but it turns out they are illegal in Maine, and it was a little too much money to spend on chance

    I'm keeping my factory wheels/tires just for inspection, I might pop for the ATX slabs next spring...

    Spent a lot on this round of mods and if or now I went with cheap pro comp rims that I really liked and they were only $88 a piece

    The ATX slabs are like $1,500 for a set its definitely something I can swing later on, I just got to a point where I crossed into a level well above the original plan...

    Big thanks to David at Northridge...I just wanted the Dynatrac pro rock 44 but he threw out a package deal price if I got the pro rock 60 that was way too tempting

    My local shop looked at the specs and they told me to grab them for that price as they couldn't even buy the components for what I could buy them for completely built and delivered!

    It's been 3 weeks now, I spent the early evening at the driveshaft shop and the driveshafts are all done, just waiting for a package coming tomorrow with some bolts needed to finish off the job

    I have a noon appointment to get the front end aligned Thursday

    Then we're doing a short road trip getaway for the weekend, good shakedown cruise considering how much was replaced...

    After that we're off to Connecticut for thanksgiving and thats like 350 miles round trip

    So hopefully it runs as good as it looks

    I think sign ups for jamborees opens up for the lucky bastards who belong to the platinum club...
