    Go Big or Go Home?

    I was just offered a pair of Dana 60 and HD Dana 44 axle with 4.10 gears for a "good" price . The only downside is that it's on a 72 Ford chassis, so it has a driver side drop.

    In order for me to use the front, I would use an NP205 ONLY if I could find a precious SM transmission so my low range would still be useful. If I did that, I would have to fab a t-case/transmission mount and get some driveshafts made for around 300-400 dollars around here.

    Or I could buy them, sell the front and hope for a passenger side Dana 44, spring over, reuse my Dana 300, and again, buy driveshafts.

    What do you guys think?

    Lot of work for a DS front axle. I'd buy them and sell the front.

    Are there any PS drop front axles with a high pinion? If you're going through the trouble, get a HP. Or swap out the center chunk from a HP axle.

    That's what I was thinking.

    If I understood him correctly, the front might be a HP. I was just googling and I saw a 70 f100 fwd with a hp44.

    So the diff can be fitted with new tubes? How messy is that feat?

    Any thing can be done. But all my CJ friends use Scout Dana 44's
    you still need to do work to them.
