    I found a junked late seventies-to-early eigthies Dodge (what Dodge isn't junk??? /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif)
    I can probably get this thing for next to nothing.
    Besides cutting and rewelding the spring perches, will these things fit my truck ('89 Jimmy) without too much hassle?
    The front is a D44 (passenger diff) and the rear is a D60FF. I'm not sure about the t-case, but I'm hoping its a 205.

    Does the front D44 have protruding hubs or does it look like your current rear axle? If it has the common Dodge only flanged front stubshafts it is not very desieable and came in a truck w/ a 203. Unless it has the gears you want I wouldn't bother w/ the front from a 203 truck. It should fit w/ the Atron bushings. The rear is the same old move the shock mounts and spring perches.

    It has the manual locking hubs, I think. I'm tryin' to make do with these cuz you can't touch the one ton axles for less than $1,500 for the pair. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif

    If it is the 203 are you saying I should probably stay away from it?

    I plan to go through both of these and stuff in lockers and 4.88's to run 36x14.50's on 16.5x12 wheels (the tires may grow to 38's before its all said and done)

    Thanks for the help!
