    I have never seen or heard of a front dana 80, only dana 70's.
    All dodge 3500 from 94 up uses the dana 80 rear. I have seen dana 80's in older vehicles as well but they are dually, and not very common.

    IT'S A 1 TON THING.... IF I HAVE TO EXPLAIN IT, YOU WOULDN'T UNDERSTAND!!!

    Never heard of a factory offered Dana 80 in a light duty truck (maybe in some big 1.5 ton or bigger commercial applications????). I have seen a custom built Dana 80 front with Dana 60 outers on a show truck (my first reaction was "why?").

    Dodge started using a hybrid Dana 80 rear axle behind their diesels engines, and maybe the V-10's. It's a Dana 80 centersections (pumpkin, ring + pinion, differential) with Dana 70 tubes and outers.
