The biggest problem with Dynatrac axles is the $5000 to $7000 price tag for a pretty basic front axle. They build great stuff and have a lot of options, but you need pretty deep pockets to play that way.

Don't know if you just stumbled across Dynatrac, but they've been in this business for many, many years. They're very well known in the sport.

Dynatrac D60's are plenty stout. If you have the cash and don't want to build your own then go for it. Plus, I believe they warranty thier axles don't they? Something you don't get when you build your own.

It's like engines. You can go buy a 500HP 350 Crate engine for XXXX dollars, or you could build it for XXXX-1200 dollars. Is the money you spend over doing it yourself worth your time and having somebody to blame for problems?

To add to what I said, I think the winner of last year's TTC sported Dynatrac Pro D60's. This was against a field sporting rockwells and I *think* maybe one mogger? Don't quote me on the mogger, but I was surprised that the D60 guy one. He just had the stuff to get it done.

I have one under the front of my bronco, was installed by previous owner. Seems good and beefy and the truck drives like a dream. Can't comment on the durability as I haven't been able to wheel it yet but seems like it could take a good floggin and be none the worse for wear.

I have their Dynatrac 60 rear end with the detroit locker. Haven't had any problems with it. Very sturdy.

Actually, my Dynatrac 60 was originally under Eric's bronco (SuperMotors founder, I believe). If you go to my superMotors, he left a comment about it. I believe this is the 3rd or 4th vehicle it's been under, so it's seen its fair share of abuse and hasn't disappointed me yet.

I've heard of them just never seen one before the price might have somthing to do with that. For my 96 FSB the price was 1985.00$ thats with no gears or lockers in it thats where they throw the MEAT to yah im going to call them up today to see what total price is, they look pretty tough and look good. As far as building it my self im a pipefitter and welder by trade gears are either right or wrong to close a tollarence for my trade i'll leave that up to the person who knows what there doing cause when it blows up like a gernade i can't kick my own ass.:rebelflag

lots of other places build axles too. im sure you can find an axle of equal strength for cheaper, without having to pay for the dynatrac name.

You could probably find somebody locally that could build you a damn nice axle for alot less of a "premium". There's always a local hardcore guy within 100 miles that you could bring a bunch of boxes and parts to and have him assemble it for you for 4 or 5 benjamins.

Ok, maybe not EVERYWHERE has one of those types of people, but they're out there. I know of a few around here that fit that bill.

My buddy in Jacks. F.L. called me and asked about the dynatrac axles he's got a 76 ford highboy with the 44 closed knuckle front end. the front has worn the knuckles down in size so it's shot, i came on to ask everybody on here about the dynatrac axles since i didn't know that much about them. they are very $$$$$ for me but he's set on gettin one, im in N.C. i got guys right up the road that will build me a axle or motor or race car Motor head city around here. they always joke me say bronco looks SWEET but it's to quiet need some noise comin outta them exhausts.:goodfinge :rebelflag

I dont see the point in paying them the highdollars. Like Zach showed, a ball joint is aball joint, and a knuckle is a kncukle. Unless you are running aftermarket knuckles, who cares what the name on the diff cover says. Yeah, their center sections are nice on the prorocks, but does the common wheeler, DD machine need the extra 1" of clearance? I dont htink so. For the money of one axle, you could build both front and rear/.
