    I'm currently building a FF 14-bolt to replace my 10-bolt (I had a lock-right that sheared it's stop pins and mangled the rest, and I don't want to spend any more money on it). I want a dana 60 front to match, but I don't know what differences there was through the years. what years and vehicles can I grab one that fits. If shock mounts or spring perches need to be moved, thats fine.
    Great Site, thanks in advance.

    Look at older 1 ton dodges too they are almost exactly alike.

    Hey thanks, just picked up 60 out of an '88 K30. does the spacer for dual wheels come off to allow you to bolt near the rotors? or is there more to it?

    I always wondered about that but never had the chance to look at it closely, but I think you should be able to.
    I am sure that not everybody can find a single wheel 4x4 one ton to get the axles from so there must be a way.

    <font color="green"> The hubs need to be modified to get the single wheel trank width. Wagoner machine will do it for about $100 each. </font color>

    Is that the only way? doesn't a single track width piece bolt on where the dual spacer is now? It looks like it might, but I honestly don't know.

    <font color="green"> You can replace the hub with a single wheel unit, but they're hard to find and pricey when you do fine them... </font color>

    Just the bare bearing hubs to replace the dually bearing hubs go for around $250 for a pair, on eBay.

    Thanks shaggy, when you say "replace the hub" are you refering to everything from the spindle out, or just the external piece that covers the hub and bolts between the rotor and wheel?

    <font color="green"> The peice that houses the bearings, the rotor is attached to it and it slides on to the spindle. </font color>
