RockJock 60VXR - Jeep JK Rear Crate AxleCE-KR6503Z51
The RockJock® 60VXR high pinion rear crate axle is simply the strongest 60 series axle that we offer, designed for extreme off-road use with up to 40-inch tires and V8 conversion horsepower. The RockJock 60VXR is built to the legendary Currie Standard and loaded with exclusive features including: a stronger reinforced stage-2 radius bottom center section ring gear load bolt, large 3.5-inch axle tubes, full-floating axles and bigger brakes plus much more. If you seek out the most challenging routes and toughest obstacles to conquer then the RockJock 60VXR is the crate axle of choice.
The RockJock® 60VXR high pinion crate axle for the 2007 and newer Jeep JK Wrangler, is a complete bolt-in axle assembly with all required brackets and mounts in place. The vehicles factory drive shaft will require modification or replacement to accommodate the larger 60 series housing and 1350 series u-joint.
Built to the legendary Currie Standard with features including:
|RockJock 60VXR stage-2 high-pinion nodular iron center section is simply the strongest 60 series casting we offer, with heavier main caps, ARP® main bolts, and 9 lbs. more reinforcement in critical areas over the already strong RockJock 60 center|
|Ring gear load bolt (top left) eliminates gear deflection, to dramatically increase torque handling capacity. The load bolt typically sits .002 inch from the ring gear, and only touches when the gear begins to deflect under high torque loads|
|The RockJock 60VXR high-pinion radius bottom center section delivers unmatched ground clearance, and improved obstacle slide-over by presenting a smooth curve rather than the sharp edge found on other 60 housings|
|Replaceable AR400 hardened steel skid plate resists deformation and gouging to slide over obstacles far better than iron housings or mild steel plates|
|Large diameter outer pinion bearing (right) is designed for the demands of reverse rotation/high pinion housings. Stock low pinion bearing (left)|
|High volume flow-thru recirculating oil system keeps pinion bearings bathed in cool oil, reducing operating temperatures and eliminating oil starvation issues|
|Large 3.5-inch diameter .375 wall axle tubes (left) are three times stronger than the stock JK Dana® 44 (right) without being overweight or sacrificing ground clearance|
|The VXR's full floating hubs carry the vehicles weight and eliminate the influences of side loading and impact shock on axle durability, effectively making the already strong 35-spline chromoly axles much stronger|
|Includes new JK rear rotors with 5 on 5 1/2 bolt pattern and machined for hub clearance. Calipers, backing plates and e-brake are OE direct fit, making service parts easy to find|
|Super strong RockJock nodular iron front cover protects expensive internals and adds structural support to the housing's face flange for increased rigidity
|Heavy duty 3/16 inch brackets feature multiple mounting options for adjusting suspension geometry to accommodate a range of vehicle lifts|
|Black satin powder coat finish adds long lasting protection against rust and corrosion to keep your RockJock looking its best|
ABS Sensors - Does not include ABS sensors, the factory sensors from the stock axle must be retained and installed on the RockJock housing
Computer Programming - 2012 and newer vehicles require a computer programmer, such as the AEV ProCal Module to reset the gear ratio and tire height in the vehicle's computer for proper function of the vehicles stability control and transmission shift points
Brake Components - Includes new 12-inch JK rear rotors with 5 on 5 1/2 bolt pattern and machined for hub clearance. Calipers, backing plates and e-brake assembly are OE direct fit
Wheel Bolt Pattern - 5 on 5 ½” with 1/2 inch studs installed
Overall Width - Axle width is 70 inches (+4.6 inches over stock) between wheel mounting surfaces, provides increased tire clearance for large tires
Wheel and Tire Size - 17-inch of larger wheels are required for proper clearance of the brake calipers. Maximum recommended tire size is 40"
Differential Carriers - Carriers provided by Currie for the VXR, are turned down to 8.300" O.D. for load bolt clearance. If a standard O.D. carrier is installed the load bolt will need to be backed out to prevent damage
