    Clicky

    Check that out... a dually D60 axle for $150.00 but must be picked up in Northern Wisconsin... No pictures, but the description is adequate.... out of a "short bus", sandblasted, painted, 4.10s, and complete hub to hub.

    I'm considering getting it myself, since I just asked my friend what he would think of a Dually Blazer, and he said "WTF!!!!?!?!?!?!!" in not so many words. =)

    I wanted to do it. For mud I think it would be cool. More tire, more floatition, more traction. I wouldn't do it and expect to a tow rig though :D

    There was one in my home town....looked bad ass coming up in your rear view mirror with 35's or 38's and like 6-8" of lift.

    But then when it passed you, you realized it had a 6 lug 10 bolt front and a 6 lug 10 bolt rear with POS axle truss and like 50 shocks, it kinda lost its appeal.

    If you do it, i say do lots of trimming and little to no lift. Short wheel base + dually rear + lots of lift would look kinda goofy.

    Because you wanted to tow with it and from the way this sounds he just wants to do something goofy.

    I Saw one this winter. It was had a dually rear with fender flairs. It was being used for plowing so, I can see the use of a dualy k5.

    What's so special about this "dually Dana 60"??? Couldn't you just pick up a dually 14-bolt out of the local junkyard for $100???

    That may be one of the elusive 35 spline dana 60 rears. I have heard that they only came under GM van cutaway chassis (which is what that bus would have been based on). Maybe email the seller and ask him/her to pull a shaft and measure it.
