Dana 60 Dropout

PhotosView Slideshow

If you're a fan of the Ford 9-inch style axle with a dropout third member but wish Dana 60 ring-and-pinion sets were an option, then the Sixty9 axle system from JRat Offroad is for you. This isn't a modified Ford 9-inch system. Instead, it's a complete custom housing and third member/dropout axle system that lets you use high- or low-pinion Dana 60 ring-and-pinion sets.

•A custom JRat housing and JRat dropout third member are the core of the Sixty9 axle system

•Go from high- to low-pinion configuration simply by flipping the pinion support and installing the correct gear set. This makes the Sixty9 axle system adaptable to front or rear use
