    I just picked up a D60 rear, as a basketcase. PO didn't know what year D60 it is, or if it's a Ford or Dodge. Can someone look at it and tell what model vehicle this D60 came out of based on it's appearance? Dodge or Ford, truck or van? 'Preciate it, gentlemen.

    What size is the u-joint?? I'd say a Jeep rear, I had a Ford rear and the pads were alot bigger than that. Dodge used a tiny goofy ujoint. I take it couldn't find the BOM??

    Never seen a Jeep J-20 pick-up?? There are a couple in a yard up here. The BOM is a Bill of Materail, you need the BOM when ordering certain parts. Check on the axle tube for a series of numbers, should be on the pass side tbe, facing forward. Get a peice of sand paper and go over the tube to ease in finding it. Should start with a 6, will have 6 digits, then a bunch of other numgers, one is the date.

    was the j20 a military one? what front did they have? a d44? so i guess they are wider than waggy d44's right?

    are the shock mounts ont he same side of the axle on both sides? (chevy have opposite sides, so that would eliminate it, and narrow it to a jeep, dodge or ford.)

    Well I can't tell if its a Ford but all the Dodge 60s that I have seen use studs and nuts to hold the axle in. I will put money on a Jeep rear end too. I have seen lots of J20s or 30s with 60 rears and they were FF. Most of the Dodge rear ends I have seen use straps not u bolts on the u joint too. The Jeeps used the u bolts

    Another way to tell it's not a Dodge is the hubs, Dodge's flare out at the axle flange. Does it say 60 on the lower right part of the webbing?? A friend had one that looked like a 60 but was some other wierd thing, a 45 or 55 or something stupid that only Jeep would do.....

    The little screw on the WMS makes me believe it was a disc brake axle. Some of the older ones held the rotor in place with a little screw like that.

    Yes, it does have "60" on it, on the diff housing.



    I don't know what came with. I think I'm the third or fourth person to receive this axle as a basketcase (hope I don't regret buying it).

    Does 1 of the inspection cover bolts have a long skinny tag on it? If so, clean it off and read the numbers off it.

    I say it out of a Jeep, GM trucks used either the Eaton style or Dana 60. Mostly GMC used the 60, and IIR the shocks mounted on the spring plates under the axle. My sub is like that. And the bump stops are on top of the spring, those are off to the inside. Being torn apart for so long, doubt the metal tag is still on the diff. Look for the BOM on the axle tube.....

    It is the Bill of Material. Mostly used when ordering parts for the carrier stuff. I have messed with alot of axles, and never had to the number for getting parts. Most of the time it varifies what the axle is, year, make of truck, etc. Like I said, get a peice of sandpaper, clean up the axle tubes, can't exactly remember where it is on a rear 60, but possible on the pass side facing forward. They aren't very big, and sometimes they are barely stamped to begin with, so if it's rusted good, might not be able to read it at all. Should start with a 6, and be 6 digits long. Go do that, and post the numbers!!!!

    Give me a minute....

    A'ight, here're pics of what I found....and nothing makes sense (to me, at least).


    This stamp is on the pass. side/front of the diff housing.... It reads "84-72", I believe....
    [​IMG]


    And then there is this cast on the pass. side/rear of the diff housing.... It reads "C-30255"....
    [​IMG]


    Also, on the diff housing, there are two places that have "60" casted, and two places that have "14" casted.... Hmph....
