    Um, I think I have some bad news for you. I doubt that the axle you linked us to is the coveted FRONT dana 60. Since it's from a motorhome - I'm thinking it's not from a front 4 wheel drive application. Maybe I'm wrong though...there's always the chance.

    Now that would be fun. A 4x4 motorhome. I wonder how you'd keep the pots and pans in the cabinets? We've got an old airstream, and everything falls out if we hit a rough gravel road.

    OK. Here's what we do. We get about 10000 pounds of heavy tubing and make a full cage. We make it as round as possible so that if it rolls over, It will just keep rolling until it gets back on the wheels.

    One of the 4WD mags did a story on a 4WD motorhome several years ago. It was a big Class A that was sitting on 38's. It was an odd looking beast for sure! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Anything would be better than hittin my head on the back seat when I'm sleeping in the back of the blazer when I'm somewhere I couldn't get the trailer to. I saw some picsa of a unimog on here a while back. Anyone see the dodge 6x6 in 4x4 mag this month? we could probably make something out of that.

    If it's a rear d60 from a motorhome, it has probably lived it's whole life at maximum GVMW (whatever) and you should probably pass on htis axle for one that has seen an easier life.

    That's OK. My entire driveline has spent the last 30 or 40k with my foot on the gas pedal. It couldn't be much worse. Is it just me or do youall get a little more merciless on the truck when you've got new driveline parts that you're dying to put in?
