    Cool old truck. That's a real workhorse. Is that a belt drive hydro unit?

    I have to admit that I assumed this was going to be another thread started by some kid on moms computer asking for pics.

    That's awesome. You're starting off right. You have a capable truck and not too much work to get you going. :drinkup:

    I just replied in your Hiniker Thread. I love that '87, it reminds me of my old pick-up. Wish I still had it.

    Your posts are so difficult to decipher. :dizzy:


    And in 2003 Mopar dropped DANA as a supplier and went to American Axle Manufacturing, the AAM9.25 front was born and is a live axle. It has no CAD and is high pinion. Fact remains, all Dodge Heavy Duty trucks still come with a solid front (and rear) axle.

    the housing is solid but the axles are not the only manufacturer that make a true solid front axle is ford not to give them any credit or anything. a true front axle has lock out hubs not vacuum locking axles. :realmad:

    How many 2003+ Dodges have you been around?

    There is no axle disconnect, the axle shafts are solid one-piece inners and outers. They have unit bearings which engage with the axle shafts acting as though the hubs were always locked.

    Quit talking out of your ass.:rolleyes:
