A e series van should have a 10.25 instead of a 60....some early 90s had 60s but nonetheless they are all way wider than the front will be

edit.
For the purpose of putting something together, a 14b is gonna be easiest. More info and readily available parts out there. Case & point - I tried getting caliper brackets for this rear, they don't fit cause it's some weird 60. Reading afterward, I think d80 caliper brackets might have bolted up but who knows.

Fairly sure the light duty vans are sterlings. The 60-ISU is in the E350.

Mine has drums. I know there's later model ones with discs out there. If you want any measurements or whatever off it, lemme know it's in my shed.

I'm going with a Snowfighter D60 up front and I'm on the prowl for a Dana 70u with disc brakes for the rear. The 70u has a smooth bottom side on the Pumpkin. Although the 14 Bolt and D70 share some characteristics the D70 is beefier but in the case of the one I'm after is a bit harder to find especially up here in Calgary. As a side note I know of a lot of builders that are starting to shy away from the king pin style D60's mostly because I figure parts are becoming rare up here, unlike the proliferation of ball joint type D60's, they are everywhere up here. This and the fact EMF Steering Components are soon if not already building ball joints for the D60, with EMF ball joints you'd never have to worry about blowing them.

Oops, sorry but I messed up some info, it's not a "Snowfighter D60" Snow Fighters were D50's as well as the fact I'll have to do a disc brake swap on the D70U seeing how none actually came with disc brakes except a few applications that had Dual Rear Wheels.

Well you were more correct with your first statement than the one above. A snofighter had a 60 front, but all the 60's I have had came from standard trucks. The Dana 50 wasn't produced until the late 80's and was IFS....the first straight axle Dana 50 came out in 1999.

Here's some more info:

Want full width axles? Here's some starter info...

As far as 70's go, they are ok. Same pinion strength as a 60. The worst part of the smooth bottom ones is most of the time they are 71's and use an oddball case, so its really hard to find parts for. You would be better off using a 10.25, they are pretty smooth bottom, tougher than woodpecker lips, and cheap.

Nope, D60 FF were still running around in late model E350's. have one sitting in my garage with 3.5in tubes, and disc bakes. They didn't change these to the metric bolt pattern until 04-05 which is a bonus I think. Mine is 66.5 WMS which isn't terrible.

Beast - How would you say the D60HD you have compares to a 14 bolt in strength? Similar? or does one have a clear advantage?

Heattreater - I see that being similar to the "final design" of my YJ, though I'll likely just jump to 44s because they are cheap around here. Lots of guys in the south buy 44s for their mud buggies, they get very little use and then get sold second hand for a fraction of the cost. It's not uncommon to see uncut boggers here in 44" with less than 1000 miles on them for under $500 for all 4.

I can't voich much for either as i have never wheeled them in a personal rig, i picked up my 60 from a guy selling his project and it had 35sp axles and 5.38s already. I got a good deal on it and saved money going this way due to factory disc brakes and not having to shave my 60 compared to a 14b. It looks like pure beef and i dont plan on having any problems with my 40 mtrs.
