Dana 70 Power-loc in a 60?

Will the power loc from my rear 70 fit in my front 60?
Something tells me no. Thought I would ask anyway.

If yes any reasons not to? Open right now, can't do locker yet.

No. The D60 and D70 use different diameter ring gears, pretty much everything but the diff cover on the D70 is much larger.

Yes, you can. It is a bit of work though. I have yet to do it personally, but look forward to doing it for a customer someday.

Yes, you can make one fit, but that's not exactly the same as just swapping one into a D60 like the OP was asking.

Thought of it at work today while driving around.

I think the spline count would be different on the axles any way.

I thought the gear sizes were different wasn't sure about the carrier.

Toyin with the idea since I have one laying around. Just occurred to me that is on the wrong side of the gear split for my 4.88s.

If I don't use it I have a bunch of extra parts to stick in classified.

I'm such a friggin pack-rat breaks my heart to get rid of stuff. Got boxes of extra parts from the jeep too.
