D60 help!

I found a donor truck for a d60 swap. It is an 89 f350. Going to get rid of the ttb junk on my f250. Looks like the donor truck has 3.55's. My f250 has 4.10s. Is it best to find another donor truck with a d60 and 4.10s or could I find a set of gears to swap in????? What do you guys think? Thanks!!

Be easier/cheaper to find one with the rite gears than to swap them, but hell use both axles in yours instead then

I agree, if you found a good deal on the one with 3.55s just use both diffs.

Thanks for the replies! Yeah that's what I was thinking, but I do tow pretty often so if I put the the 55's in I don't want it to be a dog while towing.

How heavy do you tow is the main thing, if it's pretty light then it won't matter much

personally i wouldn't ever use 3.55s, i don't even like 3.73s. but it's what is available so sue them if you want working 4x4 instantly. or save up and find a set of 4.10s personally i would rebuild the axle before i out it in and if you go that route swap the gears then. and add a locker

you have the donor truck so you have everything you need which is a big plus.

Yessir! I'm thinking I may do that. I'm also thinking about selling the whole truck and finding another 350. My f250 is just eating the tires away. And I'm getting tired of it. Thanks!

We tow pretty heavy sometimes so I don't think the 3.55s will benefit me. Thank you for the reply

Rear end tag. Is there any way to tell the gear ratio? Thanks!
