The Extreme 60 high-pinion axle for the 2020 and newer Jeep Gladiator JT is a complete bolt-in axle assembly with all required brackets and mounts in place. The vehicles factory driveshaft will require modification or 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 simply 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 the gear begins to deflect under high torque loads
     
  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
     
  The included heavy-duty tie rod features a 1.375 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
     
  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 eliminating oil starvation issues
     
  Large 3.5-inch diameter .375 wall axle tubes (left) are three times stronger than the stock tubes (right) without being overweight or sacrificing ground clearance
     
  Massive forged 1-ton inner knuckles (right) are designed to stand up to the severe punishment of larger tires without flinching
     
  Super strong 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
     
  14.250 in. 8-lug vented rotors and OE Gladiator truck dual-piston calipers provide the power required to stop your JL, without the cost or availability issues of exotic brakes
     
  Warn® premium manual locking hubs are the industry standard for durability and reliability
     
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 housing

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 system

Driveshaft: A replacement driveshaft compatible with the larger 60 housing and 1350 yoke is required. Spicer PN 10097841 is recomended (verify manufacturer vehicle fitment)

Wheel and Tire Size: 17-inch or larger wheels are required for proper clearance of the brake calipers. Wheels must have a 4.9-inch (125 mm) hub bore with a recommended 4.5-inch backspace. The 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

Steering Stabilizer: The Extreme 60 Ram assist bracket requires an aftermarket stud style trac bar bolt to accommodate a steering stabilizer. Trac bar bolts are available from FOX Racing P/N 803-02-028 or Synergy Manufacturing P/N 8806-01

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
