The Currie 60 high-pinion axle set for the 2007 and newer Jeep JK Wrangler, includes complete bolt-in front and rear axle assemblies with all required brackets and mounts in place. The vehicle's factory driveshafts will require modification or replacement to accommodate the larger 1350 series u-joint and 60 series housing

 

 

Currie 60 Axle Features

 

  The Currie 60 high-pinion, radius bottom center section delivers unmatched ground clearance, and improved obstacle slide-over by presenting a smooth curve rather than the sharp edge found on other 60 housing
     
  Replaceable AR400 hardened steel skid plate resists deformation and gouging to slide over obstacles far better than iron housings or mild steel plates
     
  High volume flow-thru recirculating oil system keeps pinion bearings bathed in cool oil, reducing operating temperatures and eliminating oil starvation issues
     
  3.0-inch diameter .375 wall axle tubes (left) are more than twice as strong as the stock JK Dana® 44 (right) without being overweight or sacrificing ground clearance
     
Powder Coat   Black satin powder coat finish adds long-lasting protection against rust and corrosion to keep your Currie Extreme 60 looking its best
     
     

Extreme 60 Front Features

 

  Front axle steering geometry is optimized for large tires and lifted vehicles with increased caster and pinion angles
     
  The included heavy-duty tie rod features a 1.357 in. OD x .375 wall heat-treated chromoly tube and 1-ton forged rod ends that are designed to withstand off-road abuse and large tires.
     
  Massive forged 1-ton inner knuckles (right) are designed to stand up to the severe punishment of larger tires without flinching
     
  Upper control arm mounts feature rebuildable Johnny Joints® for maximum suspension articulation with unsurpassed durability
     
  Rock-proof Currie nodular iron front cover protects expensive internals, adds structural support to the housing's face flange and locates the driver’s side upper control arm mount
     
  13-inch diameter vented rotors provide the increased brake capacity required for stopping large tires
     
  The included Warn® premium manual locking hubs are tucked in tight and out of harm's way, extending only 2.750 in. beyond the wheel studs
     
     

Currie 60 Rear Features

 

  The massive Set 80 axle bearings used in the Currie 60 enable the axle to have a larger diameter resulting in a 146% increase strength to resist bending forces
     
  The 40-spline axles used in the Currie 60 are 143% stronger than the 30-spline axles found in the Rubicon's Dana 44 rearend
     
  Include new JK rear rotors drilled with 5 x 5.5 in. bolt pattern
     
  Rock-proof Currie nodular iron cover protects expensive internals and adds structural support to the housing's face flange for increased rigidity

Notes

ABS Sensors - Does not include ABS sensors, the factory sensors from the stock axle must be retained and installed on the Extreme 60 housing

Computer Programming: 2012 and newer vehicles require a computer programmer, such as the AEV ProCal Module to reset the gear ratio and tire height in the vehicle's computer for proper function of the vehicles stability control and transmission shift points

Brake Upgrade: The big brake kit included with the Extreme 60 uses 13.25-inch rotors with dual-piston calipers to provide the stopping power required for 37-inch and larger tires

Wheel and Tire Size: 17-inch or larger wheels are required for proper clearance of the brake calipers. Maximum recommended tire size is 40-inches

Overall Width: Axle width is 70-inches (+4.6 inches over stock) between wheel mounting surfaces. Additional width improves turning angle with 37-inch and larger tires

Steering Stabilizer: Ram assist brackets are not compatible with and exclude the use of conventional steering stabilizers

Differential Carriers: Carriers provided by Currie for the Extreme 60, are turned down to 8.300" O.D. for load bolt clearance. If a standard O.D. carrier is installed the load bolt will need to be backed out to prevent damage
