The Currie 70 high-pinion, full-floating rear crate axle is simply the strongest high-pinion rear axle available, designed for extreme off-road use with 40+ inch tires and performance V8 horsepower. If you're building a serious rock crawler to take on extreme terrain, with a no back down attitude, the competition-proven Currie70 is the axle of choice

Currie 70 Features:

  • Massive, Competition-Grade 10.5 in. Ring Gear with 35-Spline Pinion
  • High-Pinion Design With Ring Gear Load Bolt
  • High-Clearance Radius Bottom Center Section
  • Low-Friction Hardened Steel Skid Plate
  • Desert Race Inspired Full-Floating Hub Assemblies
  • Full-Floating 40-Spline 4340 Chromoly Axles
  • Pinion Angle And Brackets Setup For Lifted Vehicles
  • 6 or 8-Lug Wheel Bolt Patterns


The Currie 70 high-pinion, full-floating rear axle for the 2018 and newer Jeep JL Wrangler, is a complete bolt-in axle assembly with all required brackets and mounts in place. The vehicles factory driveshaft will require modification or replacement to accommodate the larger 70 series housing and 1350 series u-joint


Built to the legendary Currie Standard with features including:

  Currie 70 high-pinion nodular iron center section is competition proven and the strongest casting we offer, with heavy main caps, ARP® main bolts and thicker walls and webbing in critical areas
Load Bolt   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 70 Gear vs Dana 60   Currie's competition-grade 10.5-inch Currie 70 gears (left) are cut from super tough 9310 alloy, and then custom heat-treated to a precise hardness, creating gears that can stand up to both the high shock loads of extreme off-road use and the wear of high mileage street use. Standard Dana® 60 gear (right)
RockJock 70 35-spline pinion   Massive custom 35-spline pinion shaft (right), provides increased strength and reliability over the  standard 29-spline unit (left)
  The Currie 70 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
  Chromoly spindles and billet steel full-floating hubs carry the weight of the vehicle, eliminating the influence of side loading and impact shock on axle durability. Safety is improved as the wheel and brake remain in place and fully functional in the rare event of an axle failure
40-Spline Full-floating Axles   Nearly indestructible 40-spline (1.7-inch dia.) full-floating chromoly axles are the perfect match for high horsepower, big tires, and extreme terrain
8 Lug Hub and Rotor   Includes new 13.50-inch rotors with the selected bolt pattern and machined for full-float hub clearance. Calipers, backing plates, and e-brake are Rubicon direct fit, making service parts easy to find
  Currie 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
Powder Coat   Black satin powder coat finish adds long-lasting protection against rust and corrosion to keep your Currie 70 looking its best



ABS Sensors - Does not include ABS sensors, the factory sensors from the stock axle must be retained and installed on the Currie 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 the selected bolt pattern, rotors and backing plates are machined to clear the full-floating hub. Calipers and e-brake assembly are OE direct fit

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 - Requires 17-inch or larger wheels for proper brake caliper clearance. Maximum recommended tire size is 40-inches

Center Section Currie 70 high-pinion nodular iron radius bottom center section
Bearing Caps Increased cross section nodular iron caps secured with ARP® fasteners
Pinion Bearing Large diameter front pinion bearing matched to rear bearing
Pinion Oiling High volume flow-thru recirculating oil system
Gear Set Currie competition-grade 9310 gear set with 35-spline pinion, custom heat treated for strength and durability
Differential Carrier 70 series high speed differential carrier (designed for low numerical gears) are used, enabling the use of stronger thick ring gears for all gear ratios
Ring Gear Load Bolt Eliminates ring gear deflection under heavy load (3/4"-16 right hand thread with Jam nut)
Pinion Yoke 1350 u-joint
Skid Plate AR400 hardened steel skid plate
Differential Cover Currie nodular-iron cover with gasketed fill plug with dipstick, Red

Brake Rotors OE Fitment Rubicon 13.50 inch rotors drilled for the selected 6 or 8 lug pattern with center boar clearanced for full-float hub
Suspension Brackets Heavy gauge 3/16” steel mounting brackets with multiple mounting locations that enable the suspension geometry to be tuned
Geometry Optimized for 4” lift kits with 5 degrees of pinion angle to reduce driveshaft angle
Width 70” wide (between wheel mounting surfaces), enables increased clearance for 37 inch and larger tires
