\'70\'s IH PU axels??

On my way to work yesterday I saw the truck from the little wrecking yard up the street pull in with an older International Harvester pickup on their flat bed. The flat bed truck has a great sign on it that says "We Buy Wrecks"
I was behind it and saw that the rear end looked like a centered D44.
Are the axels on this old PU worth further investigation? If so, what model years would be ideal?

Re: \'70\'s IH PU axels??

While I can't comment on all 70's axles that came in the Int'l Pickups here is what I do know. The axles I am currently running under my CJ came out of a '76 Int'l PU and like you stated, are both Dana 44s. I forget exactly what spline count the axle shafts were (somewhere between 27-31 splines I think), but the axle tubing is what caught my attention. It is one of the thickest axle tubes I think I've ever seen (for a Dana 44 application). While obviously wider than a Jeep axle, they would work well for many swaps. The front steering is different, but with a little fabrication, it's really not that big a deal. So far, I've been more than happy with my set of axles that I scored for $75/both.

Depending on the year of the truck, they should be d44's front and rear if it's a 4x4. Some of the 70ish models have 5 lug dana 60's under them. IH built everything super tough. Good luck.
