    55\" rear end

    Anyone know of a rear end that is close to 55" from wheel mounting surface to wheel mounting surface? Preferably a DANA 60 application.

    Yes. A cut down full width axle. They never put D60's on any thing smaller than a full sized rig. About as close as you could get is a 63" wms to wms 14BFF from a Cab & Chassis truck.

    Ok. I was taking my dads word on how wide this fawker is. And last night at like 2 am I went out and did the best I could to find out (the DANA 53 is still under it) And I came out with something closer to 64-65 inch range.

    So I feel like a complete moron. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif
