A buddy wants the Dodge 4.10 Dana 60 axle assembly thats sitting under my trailer.
Is there a straight axle front with 8 lugs that might be a bolt up replacement?

What's this virgin & complete Dana 60 worth anyway?

I have actually read the first post nearly 30 times to determine if I am being an ass and do not get it. I think now that I get it. Just because the axle is under his trailer, does not mean it is bolted to or a part of the trailer. I could still be wrong and then would agree with all comments made by redmist. :flipoff:

Well it must be bolted to the trailer if he is wanting to replace it. This thread is making my head hurt.

Maybe it's a wagon style trailer? Since he's asking for an 8 lug front axle to replace it I would guess he's selling a Dana 60 front axle.

All I got to ask is... If you are rowing Upstream and your saddle falls off, how many Pancakes does it take to shingle your doghouse?

craze around here is to cut the front off of your 2 wd truck,right behind the cab mount bolts and turn the back half into a trailer.just bend the frame ends together and put a tongue on it .they call it a pickup box trailer.must be one of these is all i can think.i could post a pic if anyone still doesnt get it.

Yes, It is a pickup bed trailer.
Yes, A buddy wants the Dana 60 rear end out of the trailer to put under his rock crawler. Of course I still want my trailer, so the thought of replacing it with a front end from a two wheel drive vehicle came up.
In theory, a 2x front should be cheap, and we just weld it so the wheels don't steer. The buddy claims I would also get less drag with the Diff gone.

The dodge truck I pull it with also has 8 lugs so I want to keep it 8.

Is this Dana 60 rear end worth very much? Seems like a lot of work, and the trailer is working just fine for me so I hate to screw with it.
