Rear 14 bolt , Dana 60 weight

I've been informed that a rear 14 bolt weighs about 500 lbs

Anyone know the weight for a Dana 60 ?

how about the weight for a rear Dana 44.

Thanks

Yup, I can assure you that a rear 14b is one HEAVY S.O.B. I used my engine hoist
to pick it up and move it. You can get rid of some weight by ditching the drums
and going disc brakes.

I don't know the spec's on the 14b, but I know the rear 60 does NOT weight 450 lbs. Whoever would post that has no idea either about the 60, or a weak fawk. I have a 60 in the rear of my rig....and without the brakes, I picked it up and moved it from one side of the shop to the other. So I know it doesnt weigh 450 lbs......even with those heavy ass drums on it. With disc brakes on it, and the axle shafts in it....your probably looking closer to 250....max 300lbs. Hell, the front D60 is 450lbs....so I'm certain the rear doesn't weigh that. As for a 44....200lbs ready to wheel.

I shipped a 60 that came out of an old Jeep pickup a while back. The shipping weight was 319 lbs with the drums on. T
