    2004 TJ going to dana 60 front and 14 bolt rear

    i'm about to pick up a 79 ford dana 60 front and a 14 bolt rear.. i'm not in a hurry to build these cause my current set up is still going strong.. build plans are to redo the inside first.. gears and lockers.. ARB front and probably a full time locker in the rear.. my current set up is an ARB front and yukon grizzly rear.. so i already have a compressor for the front.. once i get the axles built on the inside, i'll start getting them ready to put under my TJ.. current set up is 6" long arm and 2" BL with 37's.. i plan to continue running 37's.. one thought is should i consider cutting the axle down a little or keep them full width? also, i have access to a plasma table, so i can cut and weld on any new brackets.. but if there's a complete kit out there and the price is worth it, i am interested in going that route.. any input is appreciated.. i haven't picked up the axles yet, but they're mine whenever i can go get them.. this will be a slow build due to me doing it in my spare time and not wanting to put a lot of money into it all at once.. i'm going to do a little at a time and take my time doing it..

    You will find your trusses at Artec, use the JK trusses, and nearly bolt in to the TJ.

    start searching around on other forums for build threads... like Pirate.. they have lots of threads on 1 ton swaps, so you can see what all is involved.
