well, that's a front axle and if i recall, they only put front drive axles on their severe service trucks. so that thing has to be a pretty stout axle.

I'll talk to one of the engineers and see if there's any public info i can give out on those things.

They used them in their US Forestry trucks, my stepfather has a retired one. 3 ton truck, the diff is HUGE, with the stock 42's on his model truck there is about 12" clearance at the diff max.

i did not get any info today, never got arround to it, but do remember thease axles are usualy meant to be behind diesels... so the axle ratios are usualy way too low (numericaly) even for street use.

I went out and looked at his truck last night, he has a Detroit diesel, followed by a 10 speed gear box with a 2 speed splitter behind that giving him 20 high range gears forward. There was no axle tag, so I have no clue whats in the pumpkin, but the truck maxes out at 48 mph in top gear, so it seems its still pretty low geared...
