    hey guys there is a guy that e-mailed me about my front and rear 6 lug 10b's that I still have sitting in the garage. He said that he has an '84 Jimmy that he put an 8 lug D60 rear in and an 8 lug d44 front in. He said that he doesn't want 8 lug and wants to go back to 6, (rim conflicts, restoration, iono) but he said he wants to trade.
    The D60 has a limited slip but he didn't mention gears. I have no use for them but is there any point in trading? At least value wise?

    What are the axles out of? If it were me I'd trade them and sell them.

    Ill take thoe axles off of your hands if you do the trade. I would really like a D60 rear and a 44 8 lug front.

    ok...I'll e-mail him and inquire about the swap.
    Oh btw I looked at the e-mail again and he mentioned that the front d44 has drums...what year did they go to discs?

    Those axles might have come out of a Dodge. IIRC Dodge used drum brakes up until 1973 on their front axles.

    I figured it was either a Dodge or a F250. He didnt specify if it was a high pinion or low pinion front axle.
