    Stupid question. Ive got a 14 bolt 1 ton rear end. Im looking for a tough front end to compliment the massive 14 bolt. I have done searches on the dana fronts, but i cant figure out which one im looking for. Can someone please let me know which Dana front end is a strong 1 ton? Im looking at putting 5.13 gears, and a detroit locker in it.
    thanks,
    Mike the rookie

    looks like your looking for a dana 60 front. Make sure you get a kingpin chevy axle to make your life easier. Dodge 60 work but require some modifications.

    When looking for an axle just ask for a GM 1-Ton Dana 60 model front axle housing . All GM front Dana 60's are of the king/pin open knuckle design. These front ends were offered from 1977 to 1991 in all solid axle GM 1-Ton 4WD trucks.
    Good luck on your search ! They can get exspensive but there are deals to be found.
