2008 d60's???

Any negative issues with 08 ford d60's that I should know about in comparison to the older 60's?

Yes a real short side tube to work with and lots of cast section parts in the way. But I like the fact that the knuckles are huge and I'm pretty sure 1550 u-joints can be installed.

I'll be swapping a 05+ d60/10.5 into an LJ later this year. But the driver side tube is almost non existent because it's so short and there is A LOT of castings on it.

Run it. Run the rough stuff kit to build long arms for it using the bushings and a custom track bar and steering.

Other than the cast issue, is the labor involved on a Dana 60 super duty front axle the same for 99-04 and 05-2010? Should I pay a couple hundred more for an 05+?

I'm not sure.. I haven't built a 99-04 axle. But the 05+ d60 really isn't bad to build if you know how to use a torch, grinder, and a welder. It took me 6-7 hours to have that set done start to finish.

I just picked up a 99-04 axle today and will probably build it in the next few days so I'll post back and let you know.

I haven't got the truss put on yet. But to clean all the dirt off (wire wheel) and cut the brackets off and tear it down to just the housing took 4-5 hours.

So I would say the 99-04 and the 05+ axles take about the same amount of time. The 05+ axles might take a bit longer just because of the big cast radius arm mount.
