The front has ball joints. Its prolly a d44. I get some more pics tomorrow.

I have the fenders off as well as glass.

Im getting a high speed body saw from the china tool palace and going to slice this pig up.

It wouldn't be nearly as bad but the is no exhaust system on this truck. Also this is a plow truck. Just didnt get the plow with it.


Been though freeport a few times, small and quiet.

Kinda stalled out here, i pulled a muscle in my back. Going to finish this job this week.


In my vacation from everything, I have realized I need a VSS option on either the axle or the tcase which I may use this np205.

Anyone come across something that may help me?

Also that is a D44. I just bought another one similar to it but its a big hub 1977 F250 D44. That is a small hub.

Ty for the info zach.

What is the size difference from small to big?


The guy i got this from may have another d60 in a 90's e250 van. It should have the tone ring in the rear. I need to look at it further.

I may just sell this 60, not sure yet.

i believe its strength but i am not sure how much stronger. the small hubs are known to have some issues, like what 99ranger4x4 has. The larger hubs I have not seen too many broken myself.

Also that maybe a LP but I am not sure since I cants see it.

How about some thoughts on this steering box. Will it fit or is a yoda box better sized?
Keep in mind an explorer 302 is setting next to this f250.

Not a big deal.

Heavy sob out. Trans jack made the event easier. I still had to separate the 30 year old marriage.

Truck is cut up and gone.

My take d44 front 8lug, d60 rear 8lug, NP205 tcase. and the front drive shaft.

Axles are in need of some work but they were free to me minus the labor of cutting this up.
