    Don't know where you came up w/ those axels but that combo was never in a stock Blazer civi or mil-spec. As stated they would have 10B front & rear. The only military truck I know of w/ a D44 f & D60 r was the Dodge P/U (M880).

    I was in the Seabees for 6yrs working on these trucks and I never had one that didnt have the D60 rear and D44 front! My 86 K30 has the 14FF rear and D60 front, both locked with 4.56 gears. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    Man I hope you were referring to the old Kaiser 715. I just got my (twenty year) letter, still have CUCVs floating around my motor pool. M1009s (K5) came with 10bolts F&amp;R with a gov-lock in the rear. M1008 series (K30) came with D60/14FF with a No-Spin (locker) in the rear. Only the M1031 and certain M1028 models had a limited slip up front. If the CUCV series (or any other mil-spec vehicle) was fielded differently (with different axles for example) the parts would have to be documented in the TMs made available through the logistical supply system. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    Jeff-Closed knuckle D60 front IIRC. I was just under one a couple weeks ago and don't remember seeing the big lip that is noticable on the D70.
    Txstuck-Like I said before, M880 for the 44/60 combo.

    seeing as i have an 86 cucv blazer and 2 m882's in my yard, im gonna say 44/60 on the dodge, 44/60 on the cucv p/u's and 10b on the cucv blazer, the M715 has 70/70. the one you were under may have been changed. im not an expert but look at my web shots, i like the military stuff, and own and have owned a few along with my father. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    yes, this page says 60/70 for axles http://www.m715zone.com/techspec/techspec.html

    sometimes they all run together /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif need to purge my memory and just keep the important stuff /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Cool stuff, but...
    1st, I didn't see any CUCV P/U in your web shots. I do have one in my driveway, have hauled another, and robbed axels off two more- all were D60/FF14B. M1008's did not come w/ the D44/D60 combo.
    2nd, Had an M880- agreed they have the D44/D60FF.
    3rd, Hauled an M1009 Blazer- agreed they have 10B/10B.
    4th, This one I will not say absoultly, but I am 90% sure on, the M715 has a D60/D70FF. The rear has the larger center section and theirfore more metal below the cover than the front. This is because the the ring gear on a D70 is 3/4" larger in dia than a D60.
