2002 Dodge Dana 60 and 70?

Has anybody used a front dana 60 and rear dana 70 out of 2002ish dodge 2500?
Just wondering what downsides or issues there might be. Found a awesome deal on a complete set and they already have disk brakes front and rear so that's a huge plus.

Low pinion and 2 piece passenger side axle with CAD. Not sure of JK specific issues.

They are cheap and common though. Seems like the going rate around here has been around $500 or a little morefor a pair.

I would think that if you were to replace the vacuum system with a Posi-Lok cable it might be a cheaper alternative to the more desirable Ford axles.

They are 32 spline and I believe low pinion....


Super Duty axles are plentiful, no reason to bend around your elbow to scratch your ass.

2010 Mountain Edition: 35 Spline ARB'd front and rear. RCV front, Superior 35 spline rear. 3.5 RK w/Bilstein. Superwinch TS9500. Dynatrac Big Brakes.

32 spline inner -> can be upgraded to 35 spline with a new differential
1 piece longside inner axle shaft -> Replace with one-piece longside and gut the CAD. But you'll always have a weakened housing where the CAD goes into the axle tube
Low pinion -> No way around that

You'd be way better off with Super Duty axles, especially since you can easily make them work with the JK's intelligent systems.
