Old Skool 1 Tons...

Do you think the axles off a 1960 Ford F-350 4x4
are too much trouble to install in my YJ?

I'm not even sure what they are, but i'm
sure they're 1-Tons.

And I would have to do a disk brake conversion,
cause it's probably 4 wheel drum.

I'm gonna say it's probably going to have coarse splines on the rear axle shafts. Just my first thought...

Re: Old Skool 1 Tons...

I am guessing that the front is going to be closed knuckle, and I am not sure how that will affect you finding parts to make it disks up front (or even if you can??). As for the rear, I am not sure what they had way back then (Ford 10.25?? Whats it look like??)

The rear will probably be a 60 or 70. Ford didnt have there own one ton rear until the 80's. The front has a great chance of being a 44 but could be a 60 and it should be closed knuckle.

If it is a closed knuckle set up, look around for parts before you install. Some closed knuckle front ends are a bear to get parts for. Particularly the seal.

Re: Old Skool 1 Tons...

and usually those older axles came with coarse splines... and keep in mind are 40 some odd years old.. thats a lot of fatigue and what not for the steel... id steer clear of them.. plus parts will be hard if not impossible to get and more likely expensive...
