Axle Question

What years (if any) did the Superduty F250's come with a D60 front? Also, how can you tell by looking at an axle whether it is a D50 or D60

I don't think the 250's ever had a 60 front in the superdutys that I know of....but the easiest way to tell is the size of the pinion nut (1 5/16")

ok. Thanks.
Next question. I hear that the Dana 50's can be converted to a D60. How tough is that conversion? is it worth it?

I've never heard of that but I am not saying someone hasn't tried/done it. It would seem impossible to me since the center chunk is different and the gearset is smaller.

'02up F-250s have the D60 ('01down is D50)

Yes, pinion nut size is the easy way to tell:

1-1/8" (IIRC) = D50
1-5/16" = D60

This.

Also, all F350 duallies got the D60 from '99 and up.

Ummm, no....

They had their head up their ass yet again from '99-'01 on F-350 SRW trucks too.

Not sure that is right, I ordered a new one every year starting in 99 and they had 60's in them.....in fact we changed the gears in the 2000 model and used a set of 4.10's from a 79 front end.

One thing I know for sure, no one can say they never made it a certain way....I have been proven wrong too many times with the 70's model trucks I mess with on that.

They were not 60's. 1999-2001 F350 SRW trucks had 50's in them.

Most '02s I have run across are actually D50s...but I have seen it go both ways in that year.

Then how do you explain a gearset from a 79 truck going right into a 2000?

Negative? Show me an 80-85 with a 60 in the front from the factory....(I've never seen one)

In the meantime I'll track down my 2000 model I sold locally and take a pic of the front for you. The worst thing you can do is say they never did do something when dealing with ford trucks. I have had over 40 of them over the years and just when you think you know it all, you get one that puzzles you and goes against everything you had previous thought.

Negative to this - "Actually every F350 has a 60"

99-02 most of the D60s came from duallies. If it wasnt a dually, and it wasnt swapped, then I dont know what to tell you...but not EVERY F-350 had D60s, quite the opposite in most cases I have seen. Seems the D50s were pretty scattered, especially in the later years.

Nupe bought a brand new 99 and 2000 single wheel ton and both had 60's. Started buying duallys in 2001. So, judging by that you can see why I said what I said. In fact, I haven't seen one without one, not that I look at each and every one I see. I stay away from anything newer than a 97 for my own use....not a big fan of ball joints and unit bearings.
