    Re: Another good deal or not post...1 ton stuff

    To confirm the ratio you can count the teeth or most of the time there stamped on them. If by "locked" you mean detroits, I would go with number one since a detroit for a front 60 is in the ballpark of 460-520. But I guess it also depends on what your using your truck for and if you need a detroit in the front.

    Re: Another good deal or not post...1 ton stuff

    I would go with number 2. But thats just me. Oh, and to find the gear ratio, look at the stamp on the ring gear. There will be a long vin number thing, the date it was made, and two numbers that are the r&p. Divide the high number by the low one, and you got the ratio. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: Another good deal or not post...1 ton stuff

    for 2 hundred dollars more i would definitely go for number one.the detroit for it is like said 400 dollars and then you have to reset the ring and pinion.so anether 400 for that.so for 800 dollars you will be locked front and rear or spend the 200 dollars now and be done with it.if i had the cash id go with #1

    Re: Another good deal or not post...1 ton stuff

    He says all his stuff is military (definitely explains the low mileage) so I believe they are all Detroits /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    # 2 is what I'd choose unless the front is a selectible locker. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Re: Another good deal or not post...1 ton stuff

    I hear ya, I've never had a locker before (let alone a front locker)and I'm pretty sure the first time I drive in the snow there will be some casualties /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
    Truth is I don't think I need a front one.

    Re: Another good deal or not post...1 ton stuff

    #1 would be the better deal if the 60 locker is a Deeetroit but since you said that they're military surplus it's probably a 60 w/ a TruTrac(I think) that came out of a M1028(military K30 shelter carrier) or a M1031(cab/chassis).

    I thought the military D60's that were 'locked' were Trak-Locks (Trash locks)/forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Re: Another good deal or not post...1 ton stuff

    If they are military, then I would definitely go with #2. The front in a military is usually the trac-lok, so unless you're ok with an LSD front...

    Non locked military fronts are...not locked, as in open diff. Throw a Lock Right in there and call it good./forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That is my plan anyways.
