Dodge Axles

What Axles would be under a 1995 Dodge 2500 with the 360 v8? It is a regular cab, and i think had the snow plow package....but not sure. Where would one look to find out what axles they are?

Thanks

your id sticker under the hood should tell you... front is a 60, rear is either a 70u or an 80... a bud of mine ordered a 2500 5 spd 360 and had an 80 in the rear... allways f'ed him trying to get parts because they are uncommon with a v8... supposidly.

standard setup is 60's front and rear with that setup. only the v-10 and cummins with autos got the 70's. again, 'standard equipment'. upgrades were available

a 44 barely holds up to a 1/2ton, your talking about a 3/4 ton. no, they didn't have 44's.

side note- what do you sail? I work at a sail boat yard and sail on a racing team.

Yes they did put them under 2500s with a v8 gas motor, but hopefully you got the 60.

Well I know i have a full floating rear axle....and it looks like that wasn't an option with the chrysler 9.5 or whatever its, so i guess its safe to say i have at least a dana 60 in the rear, and and a 60 up front?

That is correct you have atleast a 60 rear just look at the dif cover on the rear and than the front if they are the same you have a 60 if not you might have the 44 but I don't think so with the plow package

The axle models are stamped into the differential housing on Dana units. they are not on the covers, they are in the housing "webbing" and should have a "60F" stamped on the front one.

I got my axles out of a 1996 2500 and they were both D60's FWIW.
