    I belive the feerds use 5lug axels?? Don't they??
    I would also think the spring perch location would be wrong??
    I am going by memory so with that in mind I sure could be wrong!![​IMG]

    ah, no... period (for the front). The pumpkin is on the wrong side of the truck. However if you're talking about the rear... I don't know.

    NEVER been stuck... *yet*

    <font color=blue>You can use a d60 rear but it requires a little more work than a 14 bolt will. you need to weld on new perches and shock mounts and get a new driveshaft. If you are good with a brakeline bender and flarer you could make hardlines to adapt the drums but disks would be easier. I found one from a f350 and i'm probably gonna put it in</font color=blue>

    yeah cause I found that one off an F250 for $125, but I think that between this one and the 14 bolt I need to modify alot more with the Dana than with the 14, I'll think about it thanks anyway.
