Going 60 shopping tomorrow...

So, I'm going Dana 60 shopping tomorrow... I heard that many Dodge FF's had 1.6" spindles (for 35 spline axles). Any advice on what to look for?

I'd love to just get a Dana 70, but don't think I'll find one easily in a JY. Anybody have any advice?

Get a 14bolt
For a 70 look for extended cab fords and some 250's.
Don't forget vans.

Down here there are always a dozen of one ton rears from 14b to d-80's. So if you don't find one it could be worth the trip down.
The only thing that suck is the prices have gone up. I picked mine up for $26 and now they go for $100

I want to run an ARB so the 14 bolt is out...

How much bigger is the 70 pumpkin? A 60 is already a plow, don't need to make it any worse.

Thanks for the responses!

i think the 70 hangs down an extra 1/4" or maybe an 1/8" a little grinding and you are good to go.

Just pick up any 60, and if the spindles are 1.4, you can have them bored to 1.6 at Lincoln Welding in Sacramento for $150. Once you figure in the price of gears,locker,35 spline axles, what is another 150.

I can tell you where to get a D70 , If you are familiar with Livermore , Go to the Davey Tree office . They have a boneyard . The trucks we used in 92-95? are passenger output open knuckle D70's . Later models used a funky ass MH axle and it aint worth a shit and I know some of the 97's used a D60 ford . These are originally Fsuperduty converted to 4x using at least three different axles , both left and right output

A sterling.... Is that a 10.25? Do they make ARB's for them? 35 spline full floaters?

Really? He said he wants an ARB.

So tell us, how much more expensive is an ARB for a D70 than a 10.25? I know what I paid for my 10.25 ARB, but I'll let you tell us since you're the expert.

Oh, and go 70, it's the best of the bunch IMO! 14 bolt if you can give up the ARB!

John Deere, do you have conclusive measurements that the Sterling actually has more clearance than a 60? I'm very skeptical........
