The Dana 60 in my J20 has been sour for the last four months. As best as I can tell the bearing that the drive shaft goes into is shot. I might be able to have a friend repair it, but I've noticed that unlike J20 Axles, Ford Dana 60 Axles can be found. Would a Dana 60 rear Axle from a Ford bolt up to my J20, or would it require a lot of modification? Is it the same width?
1981 Cherokee Chief Laredo: 360 w/Holley Fuel Injection, Edelbrock manifold, NP219, 3.31, 33\'s, no fuzzy dice (yet)<br />1987 J20: Stock except for the gaudy red Durabak all over the exterior<br />1990 Corvette that get\'s driven anytime I don\'t need to haul a load or go offroad and the temperature is over 32F.

i have one in the rear of my jeep and it looks the same width of the front axle. The wms to wms is about 66"on the ford d60 and a full size front d44 is 65.5".
60\'s and 40\" mtr\'s

That's pretty close. Mt rear J20 D60FF
is 67.25 WMS-WMS. Only about 0.6" per side

I would try fixing your J-20 axle first though.
