82 Dodge 3/4 ton military truck

I tried a google search , but didn't come up with the info I was looking fer.


My uncle is wanting to sell me an 82 dodge military truck. He said it was a 1 ton. But I looked at the front axle and its a D44. And the engine is a 318. The bolt pattern is 8 lug. So I am assuming its a 3/4 ton.
Question: What axle did they have on the rear.

Yeah I could have looked. But I didn't think about it at the time. And the truck is 30 minutes from my house.

I would think its the 8 lug Chrysler 9.25 with a Detroit.
Right?

No such thing as an '82 model Dodge military truck. could be an older model M880 series, but if it's an '82, it's just a civilian truck that was put into military service. It wouldn't be a special model from the factory and if there were anything special installed on the truck it would have been done by the military. Most likely a Navy or Air Force base maintenance truck. If it's 8 lug and has a D44 front, it will be a W250 3/4 ton. Rear will be a D60, most likely open. Might have a SureGrip of one type or another but if it has a Detroit it was installed by an previous owner. If it has round headlamps and if fulltime 4WD, then it is definately a 1970s model and could possibly be an M880 series. If it has two square headlamps and is part time 4WD, then it will be an 1982 and up civilian model.

It would have a 1.25 ton rating have a 44 front and a 60 rear with 4.10 gears engine would be a 318, 727 tranny, 203 T-case

OK I asked him about it again. Its a 77 or 79. He doesn't know. He bought it for a deer lease. Its a full time 4x (no locking hubs) with a 203 under it. And a 203 spare in the bed.

Sounds like an M880. As stated before, it's a 1 1/4 ton military truck. Basically a heavy 3/4 ton with a D60 rear and D44 front, both open.

sounds like a wonderful truck to put a lockright up front, and weld the rear... slap some 35's on it, and give it to your red headed stepchild...
