Picked these up the other day, FF Dana 60 rear and eight-lug external Dana 44 front with drilled and tapped flat-tops from the factory, the rear is just under 50" WMS to WMS, and the front is like 51" WMS to WMS with a passenger drop LP housing with no cast in spring pads, and it's almost centered on the axle.

5.89 Dana gears, cut on 2/22/74, front axle BOM 604347 2 27 85 A

Any guesses? The only modifications made to these are the previous owner ground off the spring pads that were welded on the tubes.

I'd have to guess that they are off a Zamboni
ding ding ding, we have a winner!

100% factory, unaltered, Zamboni axles, complete (shafts are out in the pic but I have them)....and complete with a snapped off front pinion....somebody's been taking the Zamboni out on cruise night and doing 4-wheel burnouts.

Not sure what I am going to do with them, really just wanted the flat-tops and hubs off the 44, I guess I could use the 60 in my YJ.....and make it a dually.

So the guy was parting out a Zamboni? Even in very shitty condition they bring big bucks.

So what do I win :D Just sell that back axle to a willys owner, it's just the right width to swap right on.

They are a little wider and use non-steering 60's front and rear ;)

Wow, it's not very often that Mr. N (should be Mr. Dana 44) is off, but those are pre '76 Chevy 3/4 ton knuckles out, and I think the housing is either teh centersection from an older Dana 44 front (like the closed knuckle J-trucks, no spring pad on the housing) or it's a center section meant for a rear axle.
