Fj Cruiser Dana 60 By ECGS East Coast Gear Supply.

First and foremost, special thanks goes to @shannon67 we were texting emailing and talking back-and-forth on the phone since as far as I know he is the only one that has a DANA 60 Lowe pinion, Also special thanks goes to Curtis at ECGS he's extremely knowledgeable and worked very hard to make this happen, so thank you Curtis and Chase. and long story short, I was contemplating for a very long time which way to go and what axle to get, They are many great axle manufacturers out there and all make good axles but the company was also very important for me to consider, specially when it comes to warranty and after sales service. I have my share of dealing with crappy companies when it comes to after sales service and warranties, and I am sure you guys as well. I know Chase the owner of ECGS for few years, and a lot of my off road buddy's have dealt with his company and including myself, and when it comes to off road drivetrain, he is the go to guy. Few years back when we talked on the phone, he told me that he had built a D60 for the Fj and that was that. Fast forward to a week ago I spoke to Curtis at ECGS and some one faster than me pulled the trigger on that D60. So after taking to Curtis and Chase they came up with a quote to build a complete axle for me. the Fj60 will be a complete axle, and when I say complete! I mean with all bearings pressed in and with the baking plate to hold the parking break and calipers and using the stock sway bar and to put the cherry on top, it will also come with the hydraulic steel brake line tubing. The center section will be a Dana-sourced smooth-bottom 60 housing that has more clearance than the 14-bolt (and typical junkyard 60) that you find. Officially this will be serial#1 and it will take two months to build and they do have a full-time engineer on site and he will draw up on the CAD/CAM the axle and all the brackets that need to be welded to the housing.

I have copy and pasted the following from the axle build sheet.

Good to see ECGS is moving ahead with this. Last I heard it had been shelved.

I hear you. And yes, it was shelved and now it is resurrected. I guess it wasn't much demand for it. I told Chase if you build it they will buy it. With $4710 shipped to my doorstep I couldn't refuse.

Re: Fj Cruiser Dana 60 By ECGS.

Looks awesome! You'll have to let us know how fitment works out with the low-pinion on the D60. I'm worried it's so big that it will hit the panhard bar on the FJ. Are you going to be running this with some sort of long-travel rear?

Re: Fj Cruiser Dana 60 By ECGS.

Is this a new, complete out-the-door product going to be sold by ECGS now? Or is it still a one-off for your FJ?

Re: Fj Cruiser Dana 60 By ECGS.

And @HERSOG I thought we were planning a Diamond axle, what made you choose this over the Diamond?

As far as I know any one can order this unit. That is the whole point lol. I know Chase and his crew do top-notch work, and with 5 years warranty this is an unbeatable deal. If you guys have any question for the Fj60 you can call and ask for Curtis he is a good man and extremely knowledgeable about our trucks and the Dana 60.

I hear you. Diamond will leave me with 30 spline axle shaft and can't go 35 spline.
