**This Price Includes The JK Big Brake Master & Booster (CE-P5160050)**
Built to the legendary Currie Standard with exclusive 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|
|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
|Massive forged 1 ton inner knuckles (right) are designed to stand up to the severe punishment of larger tires without flinching|
|Upper control arm mounts feature rebuildable Johnny Joints® for maximum suspension articulation with unsurpassed durability|
|Super strong RockJock nodular iron front cover protects expensive internals, adds structural support to the housing's face flange and locates the driver’s side upper control arm mount|
|Big 13 inch diameter vented rotors (over 1 inche larger than stock) provide the increased brake torque required for stopping large tires
|Large dual piston calipers complete the 60VXR's big brake package and provide the extra byte required to stop large tires|
|Upgraded JK brake master cylinder and booster (included with web orders) are volume matched to the larger calipers for optimum brake performance|
|Lower control arm mounts are one piece construction with integrated skid plates to help fend off bracket seeking rocks|
|Black satin powder coat finish adds long lasting protection against rust and corrosion to keep your RockJock 60VXR 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 Upgrade: The big brake kit included with the VXR60 uses 13.25-inch rotors with dual-piston calipers to provide the stopping power required for 37-inch and larger tires. In order for the larger calipers to function properly the stock booster and master cylinder must be upgraded, which is why every RockJock 60VXR web purchase includes a JK master cylinder and booster upgrade.
Wheel and Tire Size: 17-inch of larger wheels are required for proper clearance of the brake calipers. Maximum recommended tire size is 40"
Wheel Bolt Pattern: Requires wheels with 5 on 5 1/2"
Wheel Studs: Includes 1/2 inch wheel studs
Overall Width: Axle width is 70 inches (+4.6 inches over stock) between wheel mounting surfaces. Additional width improves turning angle with 37 inch and larger tires
Steering Stabilizer: Ram assist brackets are not compatible with and exclude the use of conventional steering stabilizers
Differential Carriers: Carriers provided by Currie for the 60VXR, 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.
