Dodge Dana 60's.???

Hey all I have a chance to get a set of dodge Dana 60 1 ton axles off an old military truck. Would they work in my tj? I have not seen them in person, a guy I work with has them. Is the front a driver side diff? I know they are full width and all but is there anything else I need to know about them. I figured if they will work I'll get them and slowly build them up till install.

That bigger diff will reduce your clearance. Are you going to run 40" tires?

I agree. If you a running a tire smaller than 40 inches, you better have at least 300 horses under your hood to get my approval on that heavy of an axle.

I figured they might be too heavy duty for my 35's. does anyone need some axles? The guy is probably gonna sell them for scrap metal with the rest of the truck.
