Looking for vehicles equipped with a dana 60HD

I am starting to put together ideas for axle swaps. So far I've decided on a cherokee dana 44 switched over to
5 on 5 1/2. The more I read, the more I've decided to put a 60 in the rear. Now, I would like to find one with
5 on 51/2 also. With that in mind I'm thinking Dodge or Ford. I do want the full floater so that's the HD right?
Does anyone know widths of 60's installed into dodge or ford vans? Thanks guys!

Hmm... I believe it would be easier to find a 44/60 8-lug set. Check out one-ton vans of nearly any manufacturer. IF you see a hub sticking out of the center of the rim it is a Full-floating axle.

better try and find that in a 8 lug pattern.. you can switch them to 5 lug.. but it wont be a full floater.. and also.. when going with 8 lugs.. if you plan on running big tires.. with little air.. you will need bead locks.. since 16.5 rims dont have much of a bead to seal a tire on.. also look at those utility trucks.. and all 3/4 ton vehicles.. some may have the hd upgrade.. old chevys.. pre 76 will have 60's also..
