Dana 60 semi float housing ends?

I have a SF dana 60 that I am planning on narrowing and am having a difficult time finding big bearing ends for it.
I can find ends for 3 inch and 3.5 inch tube but nothing for the 60s
Any suggestions as to where to go.

For my dads axle we got the 3.0" ballistic ends and turned the ID out to 3.125 for the d60 tubes. Still plenty of material.

Left a PM a little bit ago for them asking the same question.
looking at the pictures makes them look like they may be too thin.
I'll wait for their response.

Jsawduste, Thanks for the info on the Moser part #

Did you run these on a 60?
All of the Moser ends are 3 inch inside diameter so I was wondering if there is enough meat to trim to 3.125

Do you think I'm lying? You remove .0625" off the radius. If that makes it too thin than the parts are doomed as it is.

Ohh, we bored it deeper, to about .800" also and welded the inside of the cups also.

Yep and used the 8.8 brakes also.

95GEO knows his stuff. If says it can be done then don`t sweat it. Just do it.

No offense intended, I just wanted to check all options before jumping into this project.
Boring deeper on the balistic ends makes more sense.
I'll probably go that route.
I had planned on going 6 lug and disc with GM Dana 44 rotors on this axle so not sure if the 8.8 caliper brackets would work.
