Features & Product Details

The Currie Extreme 60 front and rear axle set for the Jeep Wrangler JK and JKU, is designed for severe off-road use with tires up to 40-inches and V8 horsepower. The high-pinion design features Currie's exclusive rotated center section with ring gear load-bolt, a combination that delivers superior obstacle slide-over and unmatched gear strength. If you seek out the most challenging routes and toughest obstacles to conquer, the Extreme 60 axle set is a natural choice.

Axle Set Details:

  • Fully Assembled Extreme 60 High-Pinion Front And Rear Axle Assemblies
  • 70-Inch Width (+2.3 in. Wider Per Side)
  • 8-Lug Wheel Bolt Pattern For Ultimate Reliability
  • Satin Black Powder Coat Finish For Long Lasting Protection
  • High-Clearance Center Section With Rotated Cover Improves Obstacle Slide-Over
  • High-Pinion Design Raises The Driveshaft By 2-Inches For Additional Clearance
  • Ring Gear Load Bolt Prevents Deflection To Deliver Maximum High-Pinion Gear Strength
  • High Volume Flow-Thru Pinion Oiling System Keeps Bearings Bathed In Cool Oil
  • Rock Slider Low-Friction Skid Plate Sides Over Trail Obstacles With Ease
  •  

    The Extreme 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                           

    Extreme 60 Axle Features:                          

    Extreme 60 high-pinion nodular iron center section is the strongest 60 series casting we offer, with thick extended webbing, heavier main caps, ARP® main bolts, and additional reinforcement in critical areas   

    Load Bolt - Currie exclusive 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             

    Currie exclusive 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           

    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 more than three times stronger than 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 1.375 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.

    Massive forged 1-ton inner knuckles (right) are designed to stand up to the severe punishment and large 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 and dual-piston calipers 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-inch beyond the end of the wheel studs    

    Extreme 60 Rear Features:

    Desert race-inspired 2-inch heat-treated chromoly spindles and billet steel full-floating hubs carry the weight of the vehicle, eliminating the influence of side loading and impact shock on axle durability. Safety is improved as the wheel and brake remain in place and fully functional in the rare event of an axle failure      

    Currie Performance double splined full-floating heat-treated chromoly axles provide superior strength and durability over traditional flanged floater axles      

    Modified JK 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
