    Does the military dana 60 front axle shaft have 35 spline outers?

    Or are they the same as a regular 1 ton with 30 spline outers?

    Thanks

    No 35 spline outers.

    They are the same as the standard civilian 30 spliners. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    30 spline. the only big difference between a military and civilian truck is the price tag. LOL if you don't believe me, PM me and i will tell you other things that we (the military) over pay for. hahaha

    I have an M1008 I got thru bidding on a gov. site. Won it by bidding $500. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Go ahead and tell all of us how the government overpaid for a K30. We can all use a good laugh. (or cry /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif)

    That's not the bad part. The bad part is you, me and all the other tax payers paid for these trucks!! /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Funny how I "paid" for a $32,000 truck and then bid $500 on it and won it!! Seems like it's missing all the Silverado equipment for $31,500. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif
