Dana is the Official Crate Axle of Ultimate Adventure 2018 #UA2018

Big tires and high horsepower are cool, but they don’t amount to a hill of beans if you don’t have the drivetrain to support them. Last year we had three vehicles on the Ultimate Adventure running Dana’s Ultimate Dana 60 crate axles front and rear, with zero issues: Dana’s 525-horsepower LS3-equipped JK, the official UA2017 vehicle UACJ-6D, and the “Two Face” UA2012 JK which has sort of become the event’s official, yet unofficial tailgunner rig. This is a testament to the product and the people behind it, as Ultimate Adventure has a reputation for inducing wanton amounts of carnage.

Dana is back again for the 2018 Ultimate Adventure and that means the official UA vehicle of UA2018 will be rolling on Dana Ultimate Dana 60s again. But this year we can’t just bolt two of its Ultimate 60 axles under a JK frame since we are building a Range Rover. We’re modifying a pair of JK UD60s for the Derange Rover, but if we weren’t Dana now offers the UD60 in builder axle configuration so you can build just about anything you want. They are available for front and rear applications with high pinion Dana 60 centersections with tubes that you cut to length. You can choose your bolt pattern, the ratio you want for the genuine Spicer ring and pinion, and an Eaton Electric Locker or ARB Air Locker. The only limitation is your imagination when building your next 4x4 project.
