The Currie LP60 low-pinion rear axle for the 2007 and newer Wrangler JK/JKU is a direct bolt-in axle assembly with all required brackets and mounts in place. The vehicle's factory brakes will be retained and installed on the new HD60 axle. The factory driveshaft will require modification or replacement to accommodate the larger 60-series housing and 1350-series u-joint.

 

Currie LP60 Axle Features

  Designed and optimized using computer simulation, the HD60 is reinforced in critical areas with thicker walls and heavier webbing  to deliver maximum strength, durability, and rigidity
     
  Gear diameter equals strength - the HD60's 9.75" gear (right) provides greater torque and load handling capacity when compared to the stock 8.66" gear (left)
     
  Large 3.5 in. diameter .375 wall axle tubes (left) are more than 3x the strength of the stock tubes (right) without being overweight or sacrificing ground clearance
     
  Massive Set 80 axle bearings (right) have a greater load-carrying capacity and enable increased axle diameter through the bearing for greater strength and durability compared to the stock reared's Set 10 bearings (left)
     
 

40-spline semi-floating axles (right) are the industry's largest and strongest standard axle offering. Stock Jeep axle (left)

     
  Axles feature the factory 5x5 wheel bolt pattern so that you can keep those nice wheels
     
Laser Cut Brackets  

Heavy-duty laser-cut brackets are positioned to achieve the proper pinion angle for stock height or lifted vehicles

     
  Currie rock-proof nodular iron front cover protects expensive internals and adds structural support to the housing's face flange
     
Powder Coat   UV Stabel Satin black powder coat finish adds long-lasting protection against rust and corrosion to keep your HD60 looking its best

Wheel and Tire Size- 17-inch or larger wheels are required for proper clearance of the brake calipers. The maximum recommended tire size is 39 inches for semi-floating axles.

Overall Width -Axle width is 65.375 inches (Factory stock) between wheel mounting surfaces
