    I am currently running on the stock corp 10-bolts with 3.73's.

    I recently purchased the following:
    A DANA 44 (rough) for $15.00 from a late 80's Chevy Pick up
    A DANA 60 (pretty nice) for $80.00 from a late 80's Ferd /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    Wanted to stuff these under my rig, but wondering if the lug pattern is the same? One axle is in storage at a friends a few hours away, so I kint measure it (D44). I'm just hoping because they have the common manufacturer they will have a common bolt pattern. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    If anyone has ARB lockers with say 4.88's I'd be interested in your location so I can steal them from you (i'll put something back in your diffy so you can git to work).

    Is the Dana 60 a full float or semi-float? If it's a semi floater it's not worth swapping the 10 bolt for it.

    It is a FF. I left the drums there, planning on going disk from the git-go.

    Anyone?

    A dana 44 is not from a late 80s gm anything so there's no way we're going to know the lug pattern

    The dana 60 from the ford is going to be 8 on 6.5...but I'd ditch the idea of that and get a 14 bolt with detroit. Easier to disc, cheaper, and if all you want is 4.88s, they're available for the 14 bolt.

    Yeah, but if it's a swap, there's no telling what the lug pattern is without checking it.
