79 power wagon

Hello. Rick here from the jeep forum. I had a 79 powerwagon given to me. it is a 3/4 ton. I it has a dana 60 rear and I don't know the front. If I try to look up info on the internet it asked 3500lb or 4500lb axles. Any Idea how to find that out. Ive decode the finder tag and it does not tell me. Help if you could thinls.

As far as i know the 4500lb axle only came under the crew cab dodge trucks. Unless some one swaped it in. you should have the dana 44 under your front end too.

Thinks for the info. IS it possible for mine to have to have a dana 60 up front? It doesn't look like other 44's I've seen.

Re: 79 power wagon

i have been told that dana 60's have come under the 3/4 ton stock but the only one i have seen in person was swaped in. this could be the case on yours too. look on the front side of your diff. and on the passanger side on the tube there should be some numbers stamped there and it should tell ya if its a 44 or a 60.

I would have to say that this is the factory set up. I got it from the original owner. You know were the spindle bolts up on the ends. The 44 has like a two step on the bottom. Mine doesn't. If you don't understand what I mean the send me a email At [email protected] and I'll draw show you what I mean.
