    i always have my digital camera in my truck... well we towed it with a buddies truck and then parked it about an hour and a half from home. So, no pics :( the body is rough. dented quite heavily.. but the drivetrain is complete, and unmolested and in great shape.

    only thing that sucks is its 3.73 gears, open (F&R).. but Id plan on re-doing the front anyway with a detroit... 4.10's would have been a bonus. thats what I run in my '77 gmc...

    the 205 has a slip yoke rear.. Im pretty sure that the fixed yoke is a straight forward swap, is it not? Ive never worked on a slip yoke 205 but I know the fixed yoke 205s like the back of my hand.

    feels good to finally have my greasy paws on a d60... theyre kind of elusive, you know.. and pricey.. i gave serious consideration to buying just the axle for well over $1K before.. glad I didnt..
