D60 FS Van VS. F350

I don't know how "Hard Core" this is but I doubt "newbee's" would know the answer. I am getting ready to start a 4 link on my CJ with full width axles. I want to know if the Dana 60 out of a full size ford van (2wd) is the same as the one found on a full size truck such as the SRW F-350. Thanks

Save yourself some grief and money and go with a 14 bolt. Cheap locker, it's full floating and veryyyyyyyyy strong in stock form, alot stronger than a 60 for the rear.

There a lot of different Dana 60's. Some parts will swap, some will not.

I have also considered the 14 bolt. That is what I had originally set up to build but I am concerned with the clearance of a 14 bolt.
