Re: WTB: 10 bolt rear axle
The mascot saves yet another person. Good work, Mr. Payne.
I briefly looked on your website for these infamous more-than-my-truck-is-worth Dana 60 pictures and couldn't find them but then again it takes a decade to load one picture on 28.8.
I'll look for kingpin caps. From the driveway they didn't look like they had balljoints but I couldn't tell if they had kingpins (which is why I thought it might be a Dana 60). I should be able to spot the caps even though the axle is hanging upside down.
From the driveway it looked like the hubs were smaller at the ends and then tapered larger toward the axle itself. This is what had me confused. Of the two Dana 60s I've seen in my life they both had large hubs and weren't tapered. They looked like a "ten bolt all growed up".
I have a 3/4 ton 14FF but I'm not ready to put it in yet. I can't find a front axle with 3.73s in it for a decent price around here anyway. I'm going to go junkyard hunting Monday morning anyway and see what I can find. There wasn't anything in the Pile of Shame except for a lot of opened 10 bolts, 12 bolts, 14 bolts, and Ford 9". I want to build up a couple axles and have them ready to throw under my truck all at once.
Once I get my truck put back together and I'm back to my place I'll post about my ten bolt exploits.
Thanks again, Jason.
