    Chev doesn't have the central brake line splitting from side to side like that.

    hey, that looks like almost the exact same dana 60 that I found in the JY. Good news is, its a d60. Bad news is, it has the external hubs. From what I have researched, the only new hub you can get for that is the MM Selectro brand. I have not heard many positive things about the hub. However, you can covert to GM SRW bearing hubs, but they are $$$.
    Lucky for me, my stock drive flanges were intact, so I am going to have them broached for 35 spline and run d70 stubs.

    One question I have, are all dodge hubs painted white like that? or was it to match white steel wheels? i thought it had something to do with the Sno-Fighter pkg, but I'm not sure. Oh well, congrats on your find.

    EDIT: your WMS should be 67.5", mine is. Also, there is a bracket on that central brake line attached to the long side tube, and the hole is threaded and goes all the way thru the axle tube. I thought it was a boneheaded PO steering stabilizer bootyfab, but its just crazy Dodge chit.

    No it doesn't...it's doesn't have hubs at all and looks just like my Chev 60 without hubs. A Warn hub or any brand of slug would do just fine in there.

    As for slinging it under a Chev, the perch width is a little different. Two methods to overcome that...one is to pull the springs apart a little and forget about it. The second method is to get some offset spring bushings from AZ-kickin.

    is that a dual piston caliper? is that on GM axles also? I would have guessed dodge by the brake lines and I didn't think the GM calipers where that big /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    The pic doesn't offer a really good look at the calipers, but from what I see they look like the same big Bendix calipers used on the GM D60's.

    Hmm...sure does look like external hubs to me. When I said hubs I meant bearing hubs, not locking /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
    Here is a pic of my Dodge D60's stock drive flanges on the external bearing hubs.
