You have a Dana 60 front and a Sterling 10.5 rear axle.

When did the 250 start getting Dana 60 fronts? I thought they had the bastard Dana 50, it looks like a 60 but has a smaller ring and pinion and more beef in the center section so 60 parts wont fit.

I also thought they had smaller hubs than the 60.

Well I learned something new. Superdutys had 60 fronts from 2001 to present. The exception being 450s and 550s, they have super60s up front.

Yes as far as I know, all superdutys with the 6.0 have the dana 60 front axle. The only difference between the 03-04 and 05-07 trucks was that the outer shafts are 35 spline on the 05-07 trucks and 30 spline on the 03-04 trucks. I could be wrong and their could be more differences but that was what I remember finding out in an offroad magazine.

Wow, so our trucks are 35 spline inner AND outer shafts? Thats great to know! I've always been worried about breaking a stub shaft doing boosted launches in 4 wheel drive ever since I broke a 30 spline stub in a Dana 60 under my Jeep pretty easy.
