    i was at pick-n-pull yesterday and i thought i found a d60 because people on here said that they only use 3 ubolts...well i was looking at an axle with only 3 ubolts but the axle tubes were so skinny, it was about the same as my 10b...is that right? what size ring gear is in a d60 and a d44?

    What was it on? I think some of the old dodge Dana 44s had only 3 ubolts go figure. Did it have king pins or Ball joints that is the dead giveaway. Also a Dana 60 has like 3.5" axle tubes.

    the tubes on the Kaiser M175 military pickup also had small diameter axle tubes plus a closed knuckle design...STAY AWAY!
