'93 F-350 hp D60

Would this axle be something that I could use on my truck to swap out the d44 with this?

What all else would I have to do to get the axle to work with the spring set-up I have now? And does $750 sound like a decent price for that axle?

it wont work with your current spring setup. You need to change the spring mounting points. That axle has a 36" spring mounting width compared to your waggy spring mounting width of 32". And a 93 axle is a Balljoint D60 compared to 91 and older are Kingpin setup. The only Ford D60's that would fit your mounting width are 78-79 F250 and F350 Dana 60's. (F250's with the Dana 60 were Crewcab trucks and Snowfighter packages. F350 is only 79 cause there was no 4x4 F350 in 78.)

ya but the weight of a ranger would probly never wear out wheel bearings or break any internals on a dana 50. i know it could happen with the right jack hole behind the wheel but its gonna take alot

Better choice of wheels as any 8x6.5 wheel will fit (16" and larger)
Serviceable Wheelbearings, Huge aftermarket.

i dont need to worry bout it, i have a king pin D60 in my F-350 nananana.

finding wheels for the 8 on 6 1/2 is getting harder and harder but the serviceable wheel bearings, real hubs, etc...is worth it. they do offer conversion kits but they are like $2,000
