me too :hehe: check your local craigslist.com out.



youll want to buy one with a matching gear ratio as your rear end. It cost quite a bit of money to change the gears out.

hey do you think i can run a dana 50 solid front end? also,

Rock Crawler Axle Assemblies

this is a sweet deal already geared down but do you think that Its a little extreme. Will i even be able to get up to high way speeds with these axles???

Hey can you can check out this link. its sounds like a good deal but so you think the gear ratio is to extreme for a truck on the street. I am looking at complete Dana 60's in my area for 900-1500 dollars! This link has front and rear re geared axles for 1000 bux a pair. what do you think

ive heard the 99+ (dana 50&60) are the wrong width on the spring perches just like the pre 83 dana 60's :( good luck on the search. im also currently looking at spending about 500 bucks on my front end and thinking about just doing the d60 conversion instead.

those ones you found have a goofy gear ratio and look older than the hills. their probly not ford and would need more money dumped into them than you want. id look into that 87 f350 thats being parted out. offer the guy 500 bucks for the front and rear axles and offer to pull them your self. that way you can get the steering componants and the brackets to hold them to the springs and every thing.
