Default Question about D60 axles

I know that the ford dana 60 king pins are really popular axle but what is the difference between that and a dodge dana 60 king pin? I know that dodge axles seem to be cheaper and I know there has to be a reason for it.

Dodge and chevy are both low pinion, ford is high pinion. The fords are more popular for the jeeps because they are driver side drop= same as most stock jeeps.
