    Yes stupid doodys until 2004 had D50s. There not that great. They have a smaller ring gear, BJ, unit bearigns which are prone to failure after installing larger tires, Driver side drop, hmm, what else, dont remember at the moment. Also is the rear axle out of the same truck? If so its a Sterling 10 1/4". Id say hold off.

    Hold off, my dad runs a 2004 SD and I believe it's driver's side drop. Besides, you prolly don't want a 50 anyways.

    A D60 with control arms and a coil springs in the front, same setup as '04 in the rear. The front is still driver's side drop though.

    I'm wanting to put a locker for the rear and limited slip for the front and gears but I don't want to put any money into the stock axles so I'm going to be looking into some better one's very soon.

    Probably your best bet is to look for axles out of a Chevy CUCV (military 1 1/4 ton truck) They ran 14 bolts in back with 4.56's and detroits. The fronts were all D60's with 4.56's. Some came with trac-loks but from what I hear they're pretty much junk anyways.

    E-bay is key, although the prices are a little high. I paid top dollar for my pair but they only had 16k on them and nothing needed to be touched. They were off a National Guard truck that had sat at a local armory for years.
