I would be down to join you. But I'm planning on doing an 8 or 9 rating trail to push the truck. Not sure your wanting to do something that aggressive, are you? I was also planning on heading a bit farther south, not that I couldn't go north.

Thinking of running Carnage or Holy Cross. But have to see how my day goes tomorrow. You guys want to do one of these? Not easy trails.:goodfinge

i dont think there are any bypass's on there..:rofl::histerica


my cv shafts and aluminum dana 35 are shaking in fear :histerica


i think i will pass,

but while i got you over here Chris, will your Dana 60 kit be compatible with the more popular/easy to find super-duty dana 60? (99-04)
i know the perch width is a little wider, (36.5" vs 38.5)
thankyou,

I have a idea for a build am i am just brain storming right know :toothless

Yeah, sorry. Been wanting to do a tough run for a while. Usually I would say let's do something we can all do, but not this weekend. We'll hook up another time.
As for our kit, it only works with the 86-97 style 60's. The 99-2004 are probably the least desireable. The 2005 and new (radius arm style) are becoming more popular.
But the older 86-97's are the best as there are tons of parts for them and they are the standard 8x6.5 bolt pattern so swapping in the 10.25" for the rear is super easy.

No problem,

yeah i was just asking i want to do a dana 60 SAS and i have a 02 f250 with the 60/10.5 already in it and if I pick up a 05+ axle it might end up under it instead...:histerica
and the 86-97 are getting harder to find/most people want $1200 for them vs the 99-04/05+ that go for around $500. ($1500 for a rolling chassis)

and the 99-04 have high steer arms available now so the only downfall is the balljoints/ unit bearings/short driver side tube. the 10.5 comes with disk brakes vs the 10.25 drum brakes. the metric pattern is kinda null and void now as there are a ton of rim options, and the 99-04 still allow you to run 16" rims.


1 of many.


and i know im running a ranger now but i plan on picking up a new frame this winter :) to use for my sas
i have no want or desire to modify the 2000 frame/run the 4.0ohv long term

The mid 90's balljoint 60 should not be $1200 these days, no where near. They should be pretty available, and I'd think somewhere around $600 max for something in good shape. More and more 1 tons of this era are in the JYards. They have always been discussed as inferior to the older axle, and I also forget about the ease of putting one under our trucks with difference in diff offset.

I'd put a BJ 60 under my truck in a second these days if I was keeping the build mild, maybe 38ish tires max, no major HP, and if I actually would use it for moderate to light/heavy trail use.

i guess $1200 is a little exaggerated(but i have seen them on craiglist for that),

but there are going for $650 up to $900 in the junkyards in colorado

the 99-04 start at
$300- $1200 from the junkyard and are more ready available, im over at powerstroke.org and have seen a few people swap them into the 92-97 f250s. (along with the 05+)
and can be had for under $500 with 4.30 gears....

And i have no problem with a ball-joint ford axle, i figure if it can support my 7.3l (my truck weights 8k lbs CCLB) and people are running 35" tall tires plus on them it should have no problems with a mild 5.0/5.8l.


i been starting to put a budget together for a build, I got my superduty paid off/built to where i want it for now, now i want to start building my Toy:toothless.
