The Currie Extreme 60 front and rear axle set for the Jeep Gladiator Truck, is designed for severe off-road use with tires up to 40-inches and V8 horsepower. The high-pinion design features Currie's exclusive rotated center section with ring gear load-bolt, a combination that delivers superior obstacle slide-over and unmatched gear strength. If you seek out the most challenging routes and toughest obstacles to conquer, the Extreme 60 axle set is a natural choice.

The Extreme 60 high-pinion axle set for the 2020 and newer Jeep Gladiator, includes complete bolt-in front and rear axle assemblies with all required brackets and mounts in place. The vehicle's factory driveshafts will require modification or replacement to accommodate the larger 1350 series u-joint and 60 series housing

Extreme 60 Axle Features


  Extreme 60 high-pinion nodular iron center section is the strongest 60 series casting we offer, with heavier main caps, ARP® main bolts, more reinforcement in critical areas over the already strong Currie 60 center
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 extremely high torque loads are applied
  Extreme 60 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
  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 more than three times stronger than the factory Dana® 44 (right) without being overweight or sacrificing ground clearance
Powder Coat   Black satin powder coat finish adds long-lasting protection against rust and corrosion to keep your Currie Extreme 60 looking its best

Extreme 60 Front Features


  Front axle steering geometry is optimized for large tires and lifted vehicles with increased caster and pinion angles
  The included heavy-duty tie rod features a 1.375 in. OD x .375 wall heat-treated chromoly tube and 1-ton forged rod ends that are designed to withstand off-road abuse and large tires
  Massive forged 1-ton inner knuckles (right) are designed to stand up to the severe punishment and large tires without flinching
  Upper control arm mounts feature rebuildable Johnny Joints® for maximum suspension articulation with unsurpassed durability
  Rock-proof Currie 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
  13-inch diameter vented rotors and dual-piston calipers provide the increased brake capacity required for stopping large tires
  Warn® premium manual locking hubs are the industry standard for durability and reliability

Extreme 60 Rear Features


  Desert race-inspired 2-inch heat-treated 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
  Currie Performance double splined full-floating heat-treated chromoly axles provide superior strength and durability over traditional flanged floater axles
    Modified JK OEM backing plates and parking brake assemblies provide reliable operation with broad availability of serviceable wear items
  Rock-proof Currie nodular iron cover protects expensive internals and adds structural support to the housing's face flange for increased rigidity

ABS Sensors: Does not include ABS sensors, the factory sensors from the stock axle must be retained and installed on the Extreme 60 housing

Computer Programming: 2012 and newer vehicles require a computer programmer to reset the gear ratio and tire height in the vehicle's computer for the proper function of the vehicles stability control and transmission shift points

Brake Upgrade: The big brake kit included with the Extreme 60 uses 13.25-inch rotors with dual-piston calipers to provide the stopping power required for 37-inch and larger tires

Wheel and Tire Size: 17-inch or larger wheels are required for proper clearance of the brake calipers. Maximum recommended tire size is 40-inches

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: The Extreme 60 Ram assist bracket requires an aftermarket stud style trac bar bolt to accommodate a steering stabilizer. Trac bar bolts are available from FOX Racing P/N 803-02-028 or Synergy Manufacturing P/N 8806-01

Differential Carriers: Carriers provided by Currie for the Extreme 60, 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
