44 swap

Hey guys i have a 1997 f250 7.3 4x4 and i am trying to find a dana 60 to swap into it. But so far i haven't found much of anything. (except for a guy who wants to sell a ford obs gasser duelly for 4000$. uhhhh no.)
I have however found what i believe is a dana 44 from a 1978-1979 f-250.
The axle tubes are 3" in diameter and according to my research are 1/2 " thick. It has disc brakes, 8 lug, and is high pinion. I found some numbers cast into the housing: 44-9f 3856.

Its in good shape and the guy only wants 100$ for it. Can I use it in my truck? Or would the weight of the motor be too much for it. As i understand the axle tube diameter in a dana 60 is 3 1/4" and the thickness is 1/2 ". Or am i reaching for the moon here.

1997 F-250 4x4. 5 speed, 6637,exhaust,dp-tuner,dana 60, 33's

The only way it will work is if you lift the truck as the pumpkin is closer to the inside of the axle and will hit the cross member

Won't work..its not rated for the PS.

You should buy it and resell on Pirate 4x4..you can fine 60's for $1k...

If wanted we can get you whats needed to use SD axles frt and rear in your truck.
