    Last night while plowing i broke a gear in my front axle causing a lot of damage. My mechanic says just about everything in there has to be replace. Parts alone are $1100. I found a used dana 60 for $1000 but my truck has a dana 50 in it now. Does anyone know if the 60 will fit?? Any help will be appreciated.

    if it is a dana 60 from a superduty from 99-04 everything should be the same.

    Yeah it came out of a 03 super-duty. My truck has a dana 50 in it now so i guess they started putting the dana 60 in those trucks in 03.

    Just make sure that the gear ratio is the same, or you'll be trying to stretch or squash your truck !!!

    It must of totally destroyed the housing and everything? Junk yard parts can save you big time. See if someone in the area can put you in the system to find what you need. I have save 2/3's over what it would cost for rebuilt or new.

    Yeah the housing is what broke sending metal chunks through out the rest of the gears, its quite the mess.
