    Jon Held: Dreamcrusher

    My very first introduction to GCLC years ago, I had just spent the day wheeling Rausch with this crew. Jon is talking to the group about the day in the woods. He calls me up in front of everyone, I roll my chair up and park beside him. Waiting for stories of praise, at how talented this cripple...

    What to choose, Dana 60 or Diamond???

    Thanks for your input. I however am a crawler, skill or finesse is my style of wheeling. I don't "Hammer" .

    What to choose, Dana 60 or Diamond???

    After a discussion with a good buddy, I am now leaning toward the diamond. His argument was, IF you ever blow up your rear while wheeling, those around you will know more about a Toyota 9.5 then a Dana. And having a "drop out" third makes sense. Simple and to the point. exactly what I needed to...

    What to choose, Dana 60 or Diamond???

    Yes, D60. You will have to be patient on pics, like a couple months for sure.

    Off the Currie website on the F9. ** * Note Gear Ratio *** below. Built to the legendary Currie Standard with features that include: Heavy Duty Currie F9 fabricated 9-inch housing with custom housing ends that accept stock style axle bearings Nodular iron "Race" gear case setup for...

    What to choose, Dana 60 or Diamond???

    @Whiskerz , well I do know that Currie has a good rep! The "Rock Jock" is sweet but is high pinion and requires driveshaft modification. Then another custom driveshaft is needed if anything ever goes wrong. Just the way I think... The F60 as far as I can tell is twin to the Diamond axle...

    What to choose, Dana 60 or Diamond???

    @LowDown , good points made me think and do more research. The D60 option says this, (refers to locker option) Retains stock brakes and shafts with 30 spline OX only! All other locker options require 35 spline shaft upgrade (Upgrade shafts below) The Diamond option is set up for 30 spline...

    What to choose, Dana 60 or Diamond???

    NO, I don't need them... But without the ability to press off and on hub bearings and all that, a bolt on package is very appealing. AND, having a complete , ready to bolt up take off axle would be appealing to somebody else. 8.2, ARB locker, 4.88 geared, Chro mo shafts....... I also can't get...

    What to choose, Dana 60 or Diamond???

    From 1 site I looked at OEM backing plates were just over $ 300.00 each. $560 for a pair is not bad. You have a link for a better price for OEM ?
