Well, you kinda need to find out what they are, where the front diff is located (dr or pass side), etc. for us to know if they are a good swap...

no sh*t! that's why I was asking the question the axles are military surplus and are all boxed up, so I have no idea what they look like. was hoping some of the "old timers" who have gone to something other than a Toy axle might know what these are. I'm just being lazy and hoping someone could save me the research time will let you know what I find out.

Please do let us know....


Seems like it could be 1/2 3/4 or 1 ton stuff since the military used it all.... Being early 70's though, could possibly be drum front brakes, and since I don;t know much about Dodges, could be driver's side diff too...

DRM, I didn't know you were that thick headed. I'll spell it out for you.... I don't know what kind of axle it is - that's why I asked if anyone knew what kind of axle it was. I know the diff needs to be on the (US) pass. side, etc... I was hoping someone would be able to say - oh yeah, those are D60's go for it. once I know what kind of axle it is, I'll know if it's usable for a Toy. I know the M-880 is a 3/4 ton military pickup made by Dodge....

ok f- all of it, just got a reply from the Dodge boys. here's the scoop: Front is a D44 with unit-bearing hubs, 4.09 gears in most if not all. Rear will be a D60, 4.10's and 30 spline shafts

NOW, what would the interest be in these axles???

...And 6 or 8 lug, and where is the front diff? I assume they're a ~62" Fullwidth, right?

Yota_San,

I'm trying to figure all of that out, since I can't get to the military base to look at them, only if/when I buy them. right now, I don't think I'll be getting them, since I can't find any info on them anywhere. I just spent the last 3 - 4 hours searching the net and have only managed to find 3 pics of the M-880, w/o any specs. Also, one pic labled the M-880 as a 3/4 ton and the other said it was a 1.25 ton truck. neither pic showes the front axle well enough to determine if the diff is on the pass side for sure.

Post the links or pics you found - can;t hurt to have a separate set of eyes lookin'...


Did you ask about the diff side on the Dodge board? This should be a pretty easy question for Dodge heads to answer.... Try here, or ORC, or 4x4Wire maybe for more Dodge people....

I know - ask over on the general board here - more exposure....

DRM - you're just full of good suggestions today you're right though, the Dodge board is a little slow. I'll try posting everything to the general board and see what happens. soon as I get some space on a server, I'll post some pics. why can't we post pics off of our PC's anymore?

don't know if this will work, since it's from a secure gov't site.



that's why I don't know what I'm potentially buying...

make sure you find out if they were FULL TIME axles or PART TIME axles. the outers are VERY different, and the unit bearings are a PITA, since it's damn near impossible to install maunal hubs without a few lucky trips to the junkyards.

they are full time unit bearing fronts, read only good to a dodge person. Also if anyone cares, (not a 100% sure)thats where the Lock-rights got started. They used them in the rear axles. Can't remember if the front was D44 or D60, I'm leaning towards D44. Not really much of a find unless you get a really screaming deal. I know that the M880 was an underpowered, non-powersteering POS. I managed to crash two at the same time, never tow an identical truck with an identical truck, bad news trust me.

I think that auction closed today at 4:00pm est... I have a friend who was bidding on them. Think that they are 60's, five front and one rear. Chevy side drop. Should know in the morning if he got them.

Thanks for all the feedback and help on these. I didn't bid on them, because I wasn't sure enough about the specs on them. Didn't want to spend $1700 on axles that wouldn't be usefull, not to mention I'd have to rent a truck from Boston to pick them up in MD.... Let me know if your friend got them, and if they're the same ones I was looking at. The lot I was looking at was supposed to be 5 front and 6 rear, but the pic didn't show 11 axles. Oh well, maybe next time
