Junkyard Score Today

Whewhoooooooo....

I found a F350 4x4 truck at the local junkyard, but finally one that actually had a front axle in it. It was put on the yard this week and no one got to it first. I pulled it and all the parts I need to swap it into my F250. It was a 95 dually with 4.10's and all. Hopefully a quick swap into my F250.

Best part was the 10,000 dirty looks I got while I was pulling it. I seen a couple people turn the corner and say "There it is" and when they got down to the truck they were very disappointed.

All in all I got the shocks, axle, U bolts, bracket for the drivers side, rear blocks and U bolts, every bracket and bolt for $204.95 plus tax and I get $35 back for a core when I bring the TTB Dana 50 back, or maybe an old 7.5" Mustang rear axle will go back.

You will need to swap over the outers to SRW too, right?

To my knowledge the only difference on the front axle between DRW and SRW for the front axle. Is they put spaces on the front so the front tires were out farther on the front axle. All he should have to do is remove the spacers.

But to be honest, he would have been better off to get an older Dana 60 that has repackable bearings. But not to the age of having king pins.

This way he can still pull his front end apart clean and regrease the wheelbearings. Also if the bearing needs replaced it only costs about 15 dollars compared to the 130 for the unit bearing.

I am looking for an old dana 60 to put under my truck.

Bearings on all the OBS axles are replaceable as far as I know. If it was a dually 4x4, it would have to have been a Cab & Chassis model since there were regular 4x4 Duallies in 94-97. The SD's had the unit hubs. Cheers!

A 95 axle will have regular bearings vs unit bearings. At $205, you stole that axle.

It was a cab/chassis truck. I got the front driveshaft also, IDK if I need it or not, its got a small dent in it from the forks on the loader. It was a 95 with ball joints and repackable bearings. It has auto locking hubs that are going away when I find some lockouts, any ones that work? Any dana 60?

I can tell y'all this much. I pulled 2 engines, front axle, and rear axle blocks. My arms are killing me, lol.

I didn't realize you got the older axle.

Warn Lock outs are the only way to go. You will pay for them, but they are well worth the money.

Depending on the type of transfer case, you may want to get the driveshaft yoke for that driveshaft as they can be a very hard part to find. Cheers!

if you are going to use the 350 driveshaft you need the yoke off the transfer case, otherwise you can use the 250 and shorten it about an inch. lock outs from the ttb will work as well and so will your hubs. rebuild it before you put it in and save yourself some trouble. and yes you stole it

The TTB 50 I have now is auto. I got the DS, but not the flange, I will have to go back for it. I am going to check it over good before it goes in, the truck only had 60k on the clock.
