Front Axle

I was wondering the differences between the Dana 50 under 99-01 trucks and the Dana 60 under 02-03?

I dont know what year it changed but I know that the older danas had an ase bolt pattern and the newer axle is metric so you cant switch your rims form a 1994 axle to a 2002.

the difference between the dana 50 and 60 are the size of the axle shafts. they are similar to the dana 44. they actually ran in to that on xtreme 4x4 for one of their products. the bad side is there is no real aftermarket to support it and make it strong.

the u-joint the inner axles tapers down just before the inner seal, and the outter shaft at the splines are the weak points. I have broken a few front axles in my wheeler. but im running 40" boggers with a crawl ratio around 200:1 its not the horsepower its the torque that breaks axles.

yea as with all axles I can think of, the larger the number the biggier ie stronger.
