i have been told that some of the 3/4 tons had a 60 upfront, and that the tubes were just a little thinner..is this true, and which trucks had them??:D

'75-up the D60 front was available. 94-up is left-hand drop, has balljoints, small shafts, and the CAD system instead of lockouts.

yet to see a dana 60 in any 75-88 3/4 ton, only dana 44.. but i do know they were an option.. just not as popular option.
alot of 88-93 3/4 tons got dana 60's.. but mainly just the cummins models.
all US 94-02 dodge 3/4 tons got a front 60. Mexico 94-02 3/4 tons got dana 44's.
(if anyone knows a way to get mexican dodge parts, let me know, as i am tempted to change my front axle to 8 lug).

Really? Seems to me I've seen the 8-lug D44 under a number of 94-02 3/4-ton Rams.... V8 trucks that is. This is Canada though... damn spooky Canadian models ;)

Well here's something weird too. The 8 Lug 44 I have is supposedly out of an 83 1-Ton. I was told that they put D44's in 1-tons for a short while while they were switching to shift on the fly 4wd. Can anyone confirm this?

Yes, there were a few years ('82 and '83 stick in my mind, but I can't confirm that) where the 1-tons had Dana 44 fronts. Also, those trucks usually came with 208's instead of the usual 205.

ah, yep, it had a 208 also. Funny, I was running all "1 ton" parts but had a D44 front and a 208!

I feel bad for the guy I bought the parts off of because he bought the truck especially for the D60 front. That was W300_Dually off RCC by the way tv
