Spy Shots, JK Ultimate Dana 80 And Kingpin Ultimate Dana 60 Front #EJS2018Posted in Events on March 29, 2018
When you’re in Moab, Utah, during the week of Easter Jeep Safari and you’re an off-road automotive journalist, it pays to pay close attention to every vehicle you walk past…even if it’s in the middle of the night. And when we strolled past Dana’s red-and-white JK in the parking lot of the Moab bowling alley, what was staring back at us was what is obviously Dana’s long-awaited Ultimate Dana 80 rear axle with 40-spline axleshafts and its kingpin-knuckle Ultimate Dana 60 front axle with high-steer arms and the company’s super-heavy-duty SPL70 axleshaft U-joints. They were bolt-in replacements for a JK, and we can only assume the company will be having JL Wrangler units available in very, very short order. Keep your eyes on the Four Wheeler website for more on these axles during our 2018 Moab Experience daily coverage.
