    get it from JKW , VERY beefy plates and very quick turnaround on them as well. pic....

    cheaper than factory plates, optional anti-sway bar attachment point, and they do custom plates as well if you want to relocate your axle (like i did) etc etc.

    as far as ubolts go, check yahoo yellow pages in your area, search for "spring" and find a spring shop. I just did this and found a great shop in portland that makes em for $8 each and they can make a set in under 10 minutes. fast enough for ya? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I'm pretty sure a driver side spring plate from a GM 10 bolt axle will work, because I think the axle tube OD is the same. U-bolts on drivers side works too.

    i just assumed that the axel tube was larger on the d60 - i will measure it in the morning. anyone what to ring in? is the 10 bolt tube the same diameter as the d60?

    no, 10 bolt plates do not work on a d60. contact jkw and all your problems will be solved.

    Off the top of my head I think the 10b is 3" and the D60 is 3.125" (3 1/8"). You might be able to make it work, but you will likely have to squeeze the u-bolts to make it in the holes. Do you need the sway bar mounts? If not I might be able to help you out fairly cheap.
