    All depend's on how the truck was ordered. Most truck's of the 70's were ordered with 3:73 for gas mileage. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I'll assume you mean the 14 bolt rear-end. They didn't have dana 60 rears. And, the 3/4 ton's didn't use dana 60's up front either, only the one-tons.
    Anyway, to answer your question, it depends on what tranny/options the vehicle had that it came out of. Rough estimate, I'd say 60% have 4.10's and 40% have 3.73's. There is no good way to know unless you pop the cover - not a bad thing to do anyway especially if you're buying from a junkyard.

    Well I looked on the back of the axle, on the right side of the cover and it had the serial # and it said 60 right below that. I got it for free so it might not be a 3/4-ton /forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gif. I though it was . it looked like one. How can I tell? If it is a ton that is better /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    it can be anything....ive seen one with 3.23's pop the covers and look. if your lookin to buy one its stupid to buy without takin a look at the gears. If its on your truck, its a good time to change the gear oil
