    rear is 9" or the 8.8 depenting on year for 1/2 ton
    3/4 and 1 ton is 10.25 sterling on just about everything ive seen

    front is d50(?) TTB on a 3/4 ton and a d60 HP on 1 ton.

    im not much of a ford guy so i might be wrong on a few of these

    you are right except early 80s late 70s Ford F250s/350s had Dana 60 rears. There are two different Dana 60 fronts as well. newer and older style. Older style has narrower spring pad widths and is a direct bolt in to our K series Chevy trucks(I have one of these axles, as does Cybrfire). Newer 60s(1980+) have a much wider spring pad width and just aren't compatible with K Series Chevys. Oh and newer(super duty) ford F250s and 350s have Dana 50 and 60 solid axles. 250s have the Dana 50 and I think all 350s are Dana 60s but don't quote me. Those newer axles have a different bolt pattern than Dodge and Chevy. Dodge and Chevy are still 8x6.5 just like they've been for 20 or 30 years(and ford was will 1999), but Fords are now like 8x117mm or something along those lines.

    ... I need to get out more often...

    I thought all Stupid Doodys had D50s, up until 2004. There crap axles anyway with unit bearings, ball joints, a smaller centersection and a metric bolt pattern.

    I was waiting for someone else to say it. I think all Super Duties have the Dana 50 unless they are dually. Duallys are Dana 60.

    Ford had some funky stuff going on with their axles.
    The F350 used a dana 70 rearend until the 10.25 sterling was released, EXCEPT for '79 F350 4x4's which had a 30 spline dana 60 rear.
    some F250's also used the D70 into the 80's, usually the 70u.

    The F350 4x4 had a HP60 in '79, then in '80 got the d50 ttb. in '85 or '86, the HP60 came back (so we still have hope for Chevy, lol). They switched to balljoints in '91.5.

    IIRC, all dually 4x4 Super Duty's have the D60. Then in '02, all super duty's got the D60.
    Somewhere along the line, they switched from the 10.25 to the 10.5 rearend.
