The HD60 high-pinion axle for 2007 thru 2018 Wrangler JK/JKU features heavy-duty brackets and mounts in the stock location for a direct bolt-in fit. The vehicle's factory outer steering and brake components must be transferred to the HD60 to complete the assembly. A high-clearance aftermarket tie rod is required (see notes below). The vehicle's factory driveshaft will require modification or replacement to accommodate the larger 60 series housing and 1350 series u-joint

 

Currie HD60 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
   
  HD60 radius bottom center section with replaceable AR400 skid plate delivers unmatched ground clearance, and improved obstacle slide-over
   
  Gear diameter equals strength - the HD60's 9.75" gear (right) provides greater torque and load handling capacity when compared to the stock 8.26" gear (left)
   
  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 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
     
  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
   
  Lower control arm mounts are one-piece construction with integrated skid plates to help fend off bracket-seeking rocks
     
Powder Coat   UV Stabel Satin black powder coat finish adds long-lasting protection against rust and corrosion to keep your HD60 looking its best

 

 

Notes

Front Axle Disconnect (FAD): This axle assembly eliminates the factory FAD and requires a computer programmer, such as the Tazer Mini or Tazer Lite, to disable the factory sensor and turn off the FAD warning message.

Tie Rod: The HD60 housing requires the use of a high-clearance aftermarket tie rod to prevent tie rod/housing interference at full turn. JK/JKU-compatible high-clearance tie rods are available from Steer Smarts (Yeti XD P/N 78065001)

Driveshaft - A replacement driveshaft compatible with the larger 60 housing and 1350 yoke is required. Spicer PN 10113216 is recommended (verify manufacturer vehicle fitment)

ABS Sensors: This does not include ABS sensors, the factory sensors from the stock axle must be retained and installed on the Currie housing

Computer Programming: 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 and transmission shift points

Steering Stabilizer: The HD60 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
