Hydro assist is a ram that uses your steering fluid from your gear box to push your tie rod in either direction to assist in steering. It takes a lot of strain off the sector shaft and makes turning big tires a non issue. It really shines in 4 low.

|doghound93||I was wondering what the difference is between full hydronic and hydronic assist I was getting a little confused between it I know what full hydronic is but is hydronic assist the same? Also if running the 40s would this work on the street and offroad as we'll > http://www.pscmotorsports.com/07-10-...-kit-7418.html|

Go Dana 60's
Loving my G2/Currie Rock Jock Dana 60 in the rear, I ran my stock Dana 44 in the rear for about a year before I completely thrashed it playing at a local Rock Quarry (though I was being stupid). Point being if it's very mild offroading the 44 will suffice but if your'e going to wheel it frequently and moderately it ain't going to last. As for up front, no way in hell a Dana 30 is going to hold up to 40's even on road only.

Sure is a lot of talk of big coin being thrown around for a build that is not going to see any abuse.
If you want to run a 60 in the rear that is fine. But don't think you HAVE to do it to run 40's on the street.

|4Jeepn||I would pass on the mopar dana 60..as I recall its a clip axle and I think only has 30 spline shafts... Call dynatrac and get some prorock 60's with 35 spline or maybe even 40 spline shafts.. 40's a big ass tires....|

From what I can see...this is a leaf sprung axle. A pic straight from that link you posted. So if they are, in fact, correct, that is a typo AND a wrong pic.

|doghound93||I talked to quadratec about those axles and there is a misprint on the website about the rear Dana 60 it was already converted to coil springs and it has the 5.5 bolt pattern so that clears some of this up|

|doghound93||To be honest I didn't know they were set up for lead springs guess I will keep looking what's people's opinion about g2 axles|

One of the vendors here just recently did a full blown overhaul on his personal jeep with RJ60s, coilovers, PSC steering, etc etc and is running 40s. I got to see his rig in person and it is clean. He may be able to throw some info your way.

|WatchThis!||To be honest with you a 60 in the rear is pointless. Especially if you are not going to wheel it.|
|04-09-2013 04:41 PM|
Here are the two axles I'm looking at
Front Dana 44 (Dana 30 needs replacing because c is bent)
Rear Dana 60
I am fine with changing my bolt pattern btw so there is no problem there
Also this jeep will mostly be street driven because I am building a tj for my offroad fun

|Lowerumble||Wheeling it or just on road? Wheeling is a little different. The hydraulic assist for instance is great offroad, but onroad can be a little tricky. Are you turning this into a trailer queen? What do you currently run with 6.5" of lift??|
|04-08-2013 10:47 PM|
You would be better off with a 60 front that dose not use unit bearings and just chrome moly axles in the rearend if you dont want to drop a lot of coin at once. It all depends on how hard you plan on wheeling it.
Give us a good honest awnser about how hard you plan on wheeling it or if you even plan in wheeling it any at all.
I have plenty of room for 40's but chose to stick to 37's for now. If I just drove up and down the streat I would be sporting 42's. You just have to be honest about what you are going to do with it to yourself.

|ESP||PM Wester on here, he's running that size lift and tires.|
|04-08-2013 10:32 PM|
|MudRunner||A 6.5" lift should be plenty of height for 40's. If you plan on wheeling I would go with a D60 F & R, as well as hydraulic assist for the steering. I'm sure there is other stuff as well, but hopefully someone with more experience will chime in. Good luck and post a pic when its finished!|

running 40 inch tires
i was looking into running 40 inch tires on my jk and was wondering what i would need to do to successfully run them on my jk. Currently i am running a 6.5 inch lift with a dana 44 rear and dana 30 front. I am looking at the mopar dana 44f and dana 60r axles for the military from quadratec for axles. i was wondering if i would need a bigger lift to accommodate the 40 inch tires or what kind of trimming and where would i trim to fit the 40s with out going higher.
