    Oh boy! Great write up and 6 months of wait was quite tedious I suppose. Thanks for the eye candy shots and making me feel J of the setup you have.. Really liked your efforts in translating the learning to us

    Looks Awesome! Great timing, I just received my 68.5 width XD 60 Friday and it was nice to see how it will look once its all bolted up. Thanks for all the DTD info as I was not aware that there is some rub issues.

    I suppose it depends on how you wheel your Jeep. For sure, the hubs are a bit more expose but not so much that I'd loose any sleep over it. While my rear rings typically get beat to all hell, it's because it's a lot harder to get a rear axle to do what you want and more times than not, your rear tires can fall off a good line and end up getting dragged through an obstacle. Up front and if necessary, with the help of a spotter, it's a lot easier to get and keep your tires on top of a threatening obstacles. At least, for me anyway. Of course, I don't even run an oil pan or transmission skid on Moby so there's that.

    After reading up your difference between rubicats setup and the dynatrac jeep....since I have been curious about this and our stupid ass fender issues, The standard width PR60 combo combined with 5.5" backspace would work with bolt on coilovers and be the only real way to keep the wheels/tires from sticking out too far correct? I do understand that the mopar highline fenders are wider than stock.
    Unfortunately, I don't think you can run 5.5" of back spacing on a ProRock 60 unless you run a 20" wheel. The steering arms on a Pro 60 knuckle will get in the way of a 17" wheel. If I'm wrong on this, maybe Dynatrac will come on and correct me.

    I hope to see you guys out on the trail sometime soon.
    Indeed! Been way too long. We were hoping to catch you at the last suds-n-grub but I'm sure there will be a next time

    The wait was tough but oh so worth it especially being that we got to learn so much. Fortunately, we have Moby so it wasn't like we were without a Jeep to wheel

    Yep, unless you're running 3.5" of back spacing, you will rub the bypass shocks up front even with a 68.5" axle. Going 72.5" allowed us to run 5.5" of back spacing while keeping the EXACT same width as we were and not have any rubbing issues.

    Sorry about that

    So what is the BS range for the PR60? I have 17" wheels with 4.5" BS. Will this work?
    Am I perfect? No. But do I strive to be better person every single day of my life? Also no.

    Go Gamecocks!

    Unfortunately, I'm not 100% sure. I know that it'll work with 4" of back spacing but you might want to contact Dynatrac to confirm that 4.5" will work as well.

    Our earlier Pro60 wheel end that is still available will also accept most 5.5" BS x 17-inch wheels. Some wheels and some steering configurations may not apply, so this is not a blanket answer for everyone. But if you you have a ProRock 60F (XD or Gen-1) with our earlier Pro60 wheel end with our crossover steering for a JK, most wheels should not be a problem.

    Even with the 5.5" BS wheel the Pro60 does not offer the reduced scrub radius of the new 1550 wheel end.
