Got my steering box drilled/tapped and painted. Ordered this little guy too.

http://www.ttora.com/forum/showpost....62&postcount=9

Googled that part number and it came up with a Prius steering shaft so I ordered it

Anyone running a Sky pitman arm? I've got a flat one on the way.

Vacuum disconnect would have a box type thing on the long side tube. Look up vacuum disconnect on your favorite search engine and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Sure looks like a vacuum axle. Note the big cavity to the right of the diff.

Not without drive flanges with manual hubs you will still have to get out the truck and lock in the hubs. My push button works prefect at the T case but I would still have to lock my hubs in to have 4WD.

Well and that will be fine with me

IS there a way to take out the vacuum deal? for $150 it just seems like a great buy.

Or should i say "pass" and my hunt continues

From the limited axles I've seen or looked at, the "ideal" axles are gonna cost more. Most people selling used axles know what they have and they price it accordingly. If you looking at a d60, check the d60 bible on pirate for a crap ton of information regarding identifying the axle and where it came from. Also tells you the "ideal" vehicles to pull them from. From what I can remember, there aren't too many dodge trucks on that list.

Ah, I see. From Mr. N's Dana 44 page:

This is a 1989 Jeep Wagoneer, a Full Size Jeep (FSJ) axle. (He was referring to a picture that I didn't copy and paste as it was fuzzy.) Notice the pumpkin on the driver side which was ran 80-91. It is much narrow than a full size pick up axle, thus using this axle or just the axle shaft is a popular option. See axle shaft chart for lengths of axle shaft. Vacuum disconnect ran 83-85, avoid these years.

This may be what you're looking at?
