    Dana 60's at colorado auto and parts?

    I was at the junkyard today and noticed and dodge ram 2500 in the yard that originally had a diesel engine. I noticed the axles looked very tough and in good shape, and after some research i am pretty sure they are both dana 60s. Possibly a 70 or even 80 rear though... don't know if anyone can...

    Custom Sub Box

    Ok so I am a 17 year old kid, so of course I need to have a loud abnoctious (however you spell that word) stereo. I had two 10" subs in the back, but i got sick of my jeep rattling like crazy and not having any trunk space. So I decided to get creative in my woodshop class at school and build...

    10.7 sec mj

    ok so today i was racing with my dad at bandimere, and I saw this sweet comanche in line to make a run. It seemed stock from a ways away, until the guy fired the thing up. Turns out it had a 401 amc v8 and nos. It was loud as hell! The fricken thing ran a 10.7 second quarter mile at altitude...

    Tire Size Help!

    What size tire should I be running on my xj with 3" lift? Should I stick with stock 4.5" backspacing on the wheels, or go wider? I plan to do a good amount of off roading, but I also drive from denver to the mountains up I70 a lot. I don't mind removing my stock flares and trimming my fenders...
