Ford rear Dana60...centered pumpkin?

Just like it says.... do the ford rear Dana60's have a centered diff or is it offset to one side(if so to what side and how much)?

Re: Ford rear Dana60...centered pumpkin?

Larry, when I installed my rear D 60 I got one from a Dodge p/u. It was also centered. I thought that is just what the Doctor ordered. It turns out that my jeep and probably everyone else's needs a off center pumpkin about 2" to the driver's side. You can probably get away without doing this, but I want my stuff to be close to right. I had someone cut and re-sleeve the axle down 2" and I had my driver's side axle replaced with a new one just 2" shorter (Dutchman). I could not narrow my axle shaft 'cause it necks down in the wrong area. That was another bit of bad news. Well, they are in and I am very happy with my conversion. If you want some more info let me know..Ricky...seeya...

Actually, I've swapped in a fuel injected 350 and my drivetrain sits a little more centered than stock. I dont need the offset in the axle.
