    what front axle does that have? i know ford started using the dana 60 solid axle up front in 1986. does that have the dana 50 independant front axle? it looks to be sitting a bit tall up front for it to be a dana 50. maybe someone swapped a 60 into it.

    Well thanks everybody im not really sure what front axle is in it, the truck has had 4 tons of stone in the bed and pulling a 20' flat bed trailer with a 773 bobcat with bucket and forks and it did really well i was surpised with it grant it is not a race machine buy any means but it got the job done. with sellin it i had thought about it but sence it is paid for i think im going to run it till it dies :dizzy:

    hahah, "keep it till it dies" lil hint......It wont haha. And you know what really cool if the trucks in great shape after time and you have some more money and feel as if you need more power, they have full turbo kits for those at reasonable prices. Mine was slow as heck but it always would move forward.

    Where you get that info?

    1980 to 1985 were TTB front axle not solid axle on F350.

    1986 were first to have dana 60 on F350.

    I am sure that preview owner upgrade to dana 60.

    Nice F350 Never see those in good shape here mostly it end in junkyard for rot frame.

    It looks to be in better shape than my 2000 f450 with 21k miles on it.
