    Hi i am new to the forums here. I am going to buy aa 1979 1-ton 4x4 to play with. My main ? is right now is what are the front and rear gear ratios? It has a 350 with a 465 trans and 14 bolt with a dana 44 in the front and i am unsure of the t case also. What normally came in these as far as the gears and the T-case?
    Thanks,
    MJ

    Tcase: NP205

    Front axle: Dana 60

    Gear ratios: 3.73, 4.10, 4.56 - with a 465, I would say probably 4.10, but it could be any of those.

    Gear ratio will depend on how the truck was ordered. 3.73, 4.10 and 4.56 were all options.

    If that truck does have a Dana 44 in the front, someone robbed the best part out of it. I've seen alot of 1 tons get the Dana 60 taken out and a Dana 44 put back in its place to be resold.
