Re: OT - Xcase in 84 chevy
If it has a 1 ton rear it is probably a 14 bolt. The dana 60 rear was very rarely used in chevys. That truck should also have a 10 bolt front. This is about the equal of a dana 44. They both have the same size ring gear, ujoints, and inner axle shafts. The 10 bolt has bigger stub shafts.
The axles are about 69" wide front and 66" wide rear. You can use hummer wheels to effectively narrow it about 7". And they only cost about $80 each with the bead lock. But hummer wheels aren't a direct bolt on. Search on here or POR for info on using those wheels if you want.
I prefer the 208 over the 205 because of its lower gearing.
I'm thinking about doing this same swap.
