    Are you sure that is a D60 and not a D61? I thought the D60 didnt go higher (numericly lower) than 3.73 gear ratio and that the D61 came out to fill the higher gear ratios.

    i'm sure that it's a dana 60 because it's cast onto the housing. it surely does have 3.54's in it as well.

    Whats the difference on a Dana 61?

    I've seen Reesers axles and it looks like every other Dana 60 I've seen. Hmmm... I wonder if 3.54 gears would give my plow truck better mileage on the highway... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    The D61 is a slightly modified D60 that they moved the pinion over to allow more room for a higher gear ratios that would not fit in the D60 case. The down side to D61's is they are very limited in gear ratios but all the outer parts are the same as the D60's.

    Why would a plow truck need good mileage on the highway? What size tires, engine, tranny? 3.54 would probably be a decent gear ratio for a stock size tire like 235/85R16 and no overdrive.

    Well... my '87 fuel injected 454 plow truck is getting about 5 mpg on the highway (with the plow though). I know it won't get good mileage, but I think some sensor has got to be out of it, cause it's running too rich. It used to have a Dana 60, but I robbed it for another rig. Now with the wear and tear of plowing, I have it set in my mind I'll eventually put a 60 back under it.

    I hope you can sell the axles for cash... so you can re-invest in something and get the right gears and everything you want for the Blazer. But you know if you don't sell them...I'll be bugging you about them. I have 4.10 gears I could swap into that 60 and put it under the plow truck. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    But I don't think you'd want me to get ahead on the Dana 60 competition we have going. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
