Default name, that, axle!!!! PICS NOW

it's in my fiance's late 70's ford f-150; 8 lugs. it looks like a massive version of my 8.8, but i didn't think a 9 inch was that big. what were the axles that ford put into their pickups in the late 70's? thanks!

The 9" looks absolutely nothing like the 8.8.

I'd bet either Dana 60 or 70, but it could be a Dana 61 if it came from a van or 2WD F250.

i'll try and get some pics; of the trucks underside, not hers.
i didn't check to see if it was 4wd or not; it's just an old truck her dad's got rusting in a field. it may be early 80's at the newest.

the 8.8 comment was that it has the pretty much exactly the same shaped cover; just a TON bigger.

FORD 10.25-INCH
Ford's biggest axle comes with semi-floating shafts in 1983-and-newer F-250s, and as a full-floater in F-250HDs and F-350s. Applications are similar to the big GM 14-bolt and the Dana 70.

Gear ratios are somewhat limited. Also limited choices in lockers. Seals and bearings are easy to get.

The aftermarket is smaller than the comparable axles from the other manufacturers, but its still a "current" axle. You won't have problems finding replacement parts at all.

Actually, did they use those that far back? All the F-250's I've come across from the late 70's have been HPD44/D60 combos. In looking at the truck, the rear looks like its sticking out, but its hard to say with the aftermarket rims on the back. I'm wondering if someone swapped it in, not that it really matters much.

Look at that picture, thats NOT a 1970s ford, clearly 80s vintage.

My 78 F250 had a Dana 60 in the back.

now its rotting at matts dads place...

anyway, yes it is a 10.25, and an 80's truck.
very strong, also locker choices are limited in the cheap/pos/worthless locker category, they make both detroits, and miller/lincoln lockers for them.
