Default 2nd Gen Ram 4.10 Axles

I'm looking for a set of 4.10 geared axles from a second gen ram 2500. I believe anything from '94-'02 will work. Must be a d60 front and d70 or d80 rear. I think that means the donor has to be a v10 or diesel.

Ideally, I'd like to trade the 3.55 geared axles currently in my truck for a set of 4.10 axles. My truck is an '01 2500 with a v10 and an auto trans. I know a lot of the Cummins guys prefer the 3.55 ratio, so maybe someone wants to trade.

Wouldn't it be easier to just swap gears?

Swapping axles is easy. Installing two ring and pinions I wouldn't consider easy. I've never done gears. Plus I'm pretty sure new gear sets and everything to install them would cost significantly more than a pair of axles.

Owner truck has to be a V-10 Manual trans or a Diesel Man/Auto to get a D70/80

If you get a V-10 Man trans you will get a D80 Hybird axle which I came across... They are rare but possibility... Otherwise it will be a D70 more then likely...

I'm reading these two pages:
http://www.dodgeram.org/tech/specs/Ramspecs.htm
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dodge_Ram#Axles

And what I'm getting for second gen 2500 trucks is:
- all v10 or diesel trucks will have a 60 front, regardless of trans.
- all v10 or diesel trucks with an auto trans will have have a 70 rear
- all v10 or diesel trucks with a man trans will have an 80 rear.

All second gen 3500 trucks are drw.

Right?

That's what I thought too... Till I came across this... I was pressing new bearings and races into my D80 and turns out it's a Hybird 80...
