The Extreme 60 high-pinion full-float rear axle for the 2018 and newer Jeep Wrangler JL is a complete bolt-in axle assembly with all required brackets and mounts in place. The vehicles factory driveshaft will require replacement to accommodate the larger 60 series housing and 1350 series u-joint

 

Extreme 60 High-Pinion Features

  Extreme 60 high-pinion nodular iron center section is the strongest 60 series casting we offer, with thicker walls and webbing to deliver superior strength and rigidity
     
Load Bolt   Ring gear load bolt (top left) eliminates gear deflection, to dramatically increase torque handling capacity. The load bolt typically sits .002 inch from the ring gear and only touches when extremely high torque loads are applied
     
  The Extreme 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 housings
     
  Replaceable AR400 hardened steel skid plate resists deformation and gouging to slide over obstacles far better than iron housings or mild steel plates
     
  Large diameter outer pinion bearing (right) is designed for the demands of reverse rotation/high pinion housings. Stock low pinion bearing (left)
     
  High volume flow-thru recirculating oil system keeps pinion bearings bathed in cool oil, reducing operating temperatures and eliminates oil starvation issues
     
  Large 3.5 in. diameter x .375 in. wall axle tubes (left) are more than 2 times stronger than the stock axle tubes (right) without being overweight or sacrificing ground clearance
     
  13.750" vented rotors and OE Gladiator calipers provide the stopping power with factory pedal feel, while the 8-lug bolt pattern improves relabitly with large heavy tires
     
  Currie Performance 40-spline full-floating chromoly axles are the largest standard axle offered in the industry, providing 1.5 x the strength of 35-spline chromoly axles
     
  Desert race-inspired billet steel full-floating hubs carry the weight of the vehicle, eliminating the influence of side loading and impact shock on axle durability. Modified OEM backing plates and parking brake assemblies provide reliable operation with broad availability of serviceable wear items
     
  Rock-proof Currie nodular iron cover protects expensive internals and adds structural support to the housing's face flange for increased rigidity
     
Powder Coat   Black satin powder coat finish adds long-lasting protection against rust and corrosion to keep your Extreme 60 looking its best

 

 

 

Notes

ABS Sensors: Does not include ABS sensors, the factory sensors from the stock axle must be retained and installed on the Currie Axle

Computer Programming: 2012 and newer vehicles require a computer programmer to reset the gear ratio and tire height in the vehicle's computer for the proper function of the vehicles stability control

Driveshaft - A replacement driveshaft compatible with the larger 60 housing and 1350 yoke is required. Spicer PN 10097842 is recomended (verify manufacturer vehicle fitment)

Wheel and Tire Size: 17-inch or larger wheels are required for proper clearance of the brake calipers. Maximum recommended tire size is 42-inches

Overall Width: Axle width is 70-inches (+2 inches over stock) between wheel mounting surfaces. Additional width improves turning angle with 37-inch and larger tires

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
