    Which would you go with if you were to go wih one? Just a thought, looking to sell my Chevy 60 and if I do I was thinking about using the money for a ProRock or Rockcrusher center section.

    Why not get the complete axle built with all the parts you want?

    I don't know which one it is but its all aluminum or maybe they both are but they are just pressing the tubes in with no welding. That scares me a little on a full size rig.

    neither, thats the Currie Tera 60. err thats the Rock Jock center section actually.

    Rockcrusher, is imported by Mad4WD
    ProRock 60, is Dynatrac

    the currie aluminum unit. It seems to have plug welds. Lots of small ones rather than 2 big ones.

    Yeah, but if your going to the expense of getting a strong, high clearence center section, your (I think) going to fill it out with high quality parts too. So the price will be pretty close in the end.

    the rock jock kicks azz, and only weighs 27 lbs. Using the currie-made all steel skid plate, its plenty tough enough to bash on rocks and that weight/clearance is unbeatable.

    The Crane D60 center section is by far the best on the market. It looks to have the same or more clearance than a Pro Rock, is made of 8026 cast alloy for more strength, and will be about the same price as the Rock Crusher. It also has mounts cast into the top of the housing for link suspension mounting points in three places. The also come with a diff cover too. I saw a set of these at Supercrawl and was floored. Definately more quality than any other on the market, not to mention the price is right too. They will for sure be the next set of center sections to go on my comp buggy. Wish I had pics, sorry guys. Ran over the digital camera.

    I have no affiliation with Crane, but I do run their knuckles on my comp rig. I had the opportunity to get a free set of the "other" orange high strength knuckles and turned them down to instead pay for the Crane knuckles after comparing the two.

    I agree 100% on the Crane stuff being the SHIZNIT. I recently saw an axle the is being built here in town that had EVERYTHING Crane on it...It was INSANE....

    Bahahahaahahaaha

    Have you priced a complete pro-rock 60 lately? Try 7-9k for a front. And more like 4-5k for a rock crusher...

    I hope he just meant the center section alone...

    Center Section alone is $795 for a Rockcrusher and $1100 for a ProRock. That was what I was talking about. Didn't bother pricing a complete axle, no surprise its so insane.

    I'd want to see it tested more before using it.

    There are a few comp rigs running the center sections with no problems as of yet...
