    I use to know a bit about the Power Wagons in my Mopar days. I believe a closed knuckle Dana 70 front and a Dana 70 rear, but, you might want to do a search to verify that. I was going to buy a 61 years ago (like around 1985) and decided against it ... parts for it back then were hard to find.

    Hey, you forgot to post the phone number from that ad! ;)

    Good Luck,

    I think it's a closed knuckle D70.

    Closed knuckle, no doubt. Which Dana series I do not know.

    Long ago co-worker had one of those. Stock ex-utility Co. truck. Wore out the stock tires. Put 36's on it. They lowered the truck. Gave me a ride one morning, pulled up to a light and next to us was a lifted yota on 36's. I looked DOWN into his truck. :D :D :D

    I don't know the model of or gear ratios of the axles but I have owned two dodges from the 60's, 70's both had full time 4x4 and could pull down a building with out trying. They were completely indestructible off road. I litterally ran into a concrete retaining wall at 40 mph, droped the front tires over the edge and did not hurt the truck or myself at all. It also pulled itself back out of the mess on its own with two diagnal wheels in the air and the other two in mud.

    They were 1/2 and 3/4 ton trucks. I don't think anything but rust could kill a 1 ton or bigger.
