No, the majority of them came with a D-44 in the rear. That does`nt mean that you might not get lucky. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Check out the two you`ve found, Quick! Good Luck.

No J10s have 5 lug, only 6 lug and dana 44 front and rear.
The axle you mention is from 69-73 J4000 (4 thousand series) trucks. The J10 started in 74 and by then axles were switched to open knuckle and 6 lug as the 1/2 ton jeep truck. I have some more info on the 60-2 here:

That's what I'm looking for. So, if its a newer j-10 with 5 lugs its a d60? Or did they put a 5 lug dana 44 or amc 20 in the rear of these trucks too?

Kid did you not get it? There are NO, I repeat NO 5-lug J-10's with 60's. The only newer J-trucks that have them are J-20's with 8 lugs, they are 3/4 ton trucks. The 5 lug Dana 60 your asking about was only offered in the 60's, with 35 spline semi-float axles. Finding one is rare, and I personally don't think they are worth running because of their age, plus it's SEMI-FLOAT! If you want a 60, get a real 60, full-float 8 lug. I got a set of 79 3/4 ton J-20 axles sitting in my garage right now, if your interested PM me.

Re: Do All J-10s with 5 lugs have a Dana 60?

I'm amazed at how inaccurate the info on offroad.com is some times. Just to clarify the link above:
"The Dana 60 is only availble on Jeeps for heavy duty applications."
True

"It was an option semi-floating and full floating in the J-series pickups until 1981."
False. The dana 60 was offered as a full floater until 87'

"Some heavy 1/2 ton and early 3/4 ton J-series trucks used a semi-floating Dana 60 with 5 on 5.5" wheel bolt pattern."
True but the correct years for the semi-float 5 lug 60 are 69-73. This was in the J4000 (not the j10) and the dana 44 was offered also.

"Later 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks used a full floating Dana 60 with 8 on 6.5" wheel bolt pattern."
All 3/4 tons had the FF 60 with 30 splines.

"Shafts are either 30 or 35 spline."
All the full floaters are 30 spline and only the 60-2 semi float is 35 spline.

Anyway, look under the trucks for a 60, if it's 5 lug you scored.
