I'm looking to get a fullsize Bronco, preferably a 78-79, and I am going to swap in big, hurkin', axles, and was wondering what F-series truck has Dana 60's or something around that nature. I like to get all my info before I jump into things.
The only front Dana 60 that will fit into a 78/79 Bronco is one from a 78/79 F250HD or F350. Expect to pay over $1000 for this axle. You also need to do some nifty fabricating to convert it to coil spring as the F250 and F350 were leaf sprung. Most Dana 60 rear axles from the early 70's-80's will fit as will Dana 70 SRW and the later Sterling 10.25"
Come on over to www.projectbronco.com we specialize in 78/79 Broncos and OX has a tech article on putting a Dana 60 front in his 78.
I think the biggest benefit of owning a 78/79 is that it comes stock with a solid axle. If you are going to the expense of swapping out to huge axles anyway I don't think It will make much of a difference what fullsize Bronco you buy. One added benefit of those years though is that they come stock with a 351M or 400M while these motors aren't the best that Ford ever produced The Big block C6 that follows it will allow you to bolt in a 429/460.
