    Yes, these were in the M715 Kaiser Jeeps. And yes, its spelled "Kaiser", too. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    These axles in these big Jeeps are a 6 lug pattern, but a larger pattern and the front D60's are the weakest of all with the closed knuckles.

    The Kaiser D70 fronts are not the application for the Dana 35 spline stubs. As Wes said these are not as desirable as the D60's commonly seen today. The 35 spline D70 front axles are extremely rare, probably the most common application would be in a fork lift or some other equipment rather than a truck.

    If all you need is a part number for the stub the Billavista D60 article should have that.

    What I'm really looking for is the NSN for the stubs! I might have to Fed LOg the Part number(382-871) and see what I come up with... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
