    Default dana 60s swap

    normally i would look this stuff up myself but im deployed and have very limited computer time. so im hoping you guys can help me out here.

    my wife came across a really good deal on a set of dana 60s off of a dodge ram 1500 late 90s. im wondering what all will i have to do to make them work on my 04 unlimited. like how much wider will they be, what kind of fab work will have to be done, and anything else problem wise i might run into

    thanks ahead of time guys

    not possible, if its a 1500 its a front 44 with a 8.75" rear typically. anyways i would stay away. those have the D60's from the 3/4t diesels and 1 ton's have CAD (vacuum disconnect bs on them) plus they are a weird ass 32 spline inner so the lockers are more expensive unless you swap to 35 spline stuff.

    If you want to go 60's look at the ford 350 78-79 and like 85-91 I believe. pirate 4x4 has a really good write up on front 60's. As for the rear you might want to go with a 14 bolt.

    Goose you would have a full width Dana 44 up front that is wider unless you cut it down and a Jeep 44 out back which on the JK is a good axle, but still not a real Dana 44 strength wise...also need to look at the hubs, bolt pattern for the wheels, brake size, ring and pinion...not saying not to do it, just make sure you look at everything before you spend your money.
