    Is there any way to tell the gear ratio on a Dana 60 (rear) without popping the diff cover or spinning the tires? I have one on my garage floor right now and I want to sell it but I need to know the gear ratio for the ad. Thanks!

    unless it has some kind of tag on it i don't think so .your probably going to have to pop the cover off.

    you can do the tire spining method even off the truck and it should get you close.

    Right now it is flat on the floor with no wheels or tires on it. It is just too heavy to try and spin the axles. Do you guys know where the tag would be on this thing? I'll try to see it I can find that and read it. Thanks again!

    Dana's will have a tag. The Dana 60 I dug out of a '72 3/4-ton Longhorn had it. Was bolted on with one of the cover bolts.

    Of course, the last guy who changed the diff oil may have kept it as a momento /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
