As a side note to this tech, do not confuse a Dana 61 for a 60. Easy to do as they are identical from all outward appearences. The difference is the pinion offset in the 61 is off by .25 - .375 or so.

These axles came with either 3.07 or 3.54 ratios and making one work is more expense than it is worth. Some folks have done it with spacers and used the open carriers with welding them up or using a lunchbox for the regular 60.

The 61 was available for either front or rear applications. Pirate4x4 does have a few articles about it and what people have done to overcome their dilema of pruchasing one of these bastard axles.

These will have a BOM # starting with 610
