    its got low miles. should i sell the whole axle on ebay or part it and keep the trak lock for my 60 and swap the side gears out for the 35 spline axles.

    If it's a 5 lug SF it sounds like it's out of a Mopar muscle car of some sort. Chrysler used D60's in the 60's and early 70's in certain muscle cars. I'm not a Mopar guy so I can't be more specific. I would think if this is the case with what you have, put it on ebay, some Mopar guy might pay good $$ for it.

    Ive got a tracloc in the front of my yard truck that I converted to 35spline,those side gears are a little pricey @ $40. each.
    Works great for snow plowing,full on posi is not always good!

    Could also be out of a BB truck. Either way it could bring some $$$$$.
