d60 WMS to WMS?

I was looking at a Ford rear d60 today. I need one to go with a Chevy front 60. The rear I looked at measured about 64" WMS to WMS. Is this the right measurment for a Ford rear. My buddy has some GM 14 bolts that measure about 67". The Chevy front 60 is more like 69.5" right? I'm fine with the front being a couple inches wider. But is the Ford 60 just that much shorter or should I keep looking for another one?

If your interested Ive got a empty D61 rear thats 67in, and D70 sized spindles came stock. No shafts, except the long side 30 spline.
$155 shipped forward air.

Mix matched wheels Schmo? That makes it harder to rotate. I'll keep looking for the right rear, 65.75". Thanks.

That's about the same width as a D60 from a old body style Dodge pick-up.

My 1974 Dodge W200 rear (BOM 603236) was about 65.5" wide before we hacked it up. It's housing is marked HD and has some extra ribs compared to a normal d60; if we wouldn't have had a normal D60 sitting next to it, we probably wouldn't have noticed. Searching on here showed it was used from 71.5-75.

Searching on car-part.com showed it is an interchange from 72-88; although I can't say that 76-88 are HDs, only that they will interchange.

Not at all. I bought this Jeep with 4.88s a lock right and Super35 w/ detroit. I sold the thuper thirty five and put in the 8.8 with detroit. I rode hard all year with no problems. I was happy with the d30. But now I'm ready to step it up a little.

the front axle wants to be about 2" wider than the rear............just what i have found to be designed by the engineers

i have a matched set 44/60 out of a 78 3/4 ford. the front measures 68" and the rear 66".

I too have a D60 HD. It is from a late 70's Ford F-250 2WD CREW CAB.
Extra ribs and the width is 66" although it still has factory 30-spline shafts.

603196-4 is the BOM....... If memory serves me right I think its from a 72 Ford P/U

Anyone good with the BOM look up... I did convert from 16 splines to 35 and got rid of the Drums (went to Chebby discs)

Dale,
I think I might have one. I'll look and measure and e-mail you but might be after X-mas. I thought you already had a 60 frt???? The best way to go is cowboy up and buy a legit military take-out. Although a little more pricey they are usually a LOT NICER than civilian stuff I've seen.

on second thought I wouldn't even run a rear 60 and go through the hassle of drilling spindles etc etc. There is what I think is a better choice That is strong(redneck tested) better clearance and it already has 1.5" 33 spline semi float axles. It's getting tough to find the right 60 rr that has the correct bearing to dictate enough material to drill and run the 1.5" shafts. PM me if interested it's super top secret info

OK I'll confess. I've been running the smaller 9.5" 14 bolt- not the tater plow 10.5" 14 bolt. You can lay a 44 gasket on the back and you only loose an inch or so over the 44. they're lighter than the 60 and trust me they are BOMB PROOF. We've tortured mine with 37" red labels and have yet to break one. You don't really need a full float axle in a 4K Jeep!!!! Unless you're going to run 39" + tires. Ride up next week sometime or go to my website where they're pics of the Jeep. I've used/sold all mine but my buddy has some for reasonable $$$

Yep the baby 14 bolt is a great axle. You can get full case detroits, lock rights, ARB's or spools for them. They also came from the factory 6 lug with rear disks.
