    Looking for a Dana 25 for my 49 truck. Would like with 4:88 gearing. Would like it a reasonable drive from the Dallas Ft. Worth area for pickup.
    Thanks

    Appreciate the offer but your right. Idaho is a tad far.
    Thanks

    The axle you are looking for comes in a 226 6 cyl pickup. 1954 1962. Most of them were 4.88. The 4 cyl ratio was always 5.38. Reason: the 4 cyl didn't have the horsepower to move that truck any faster. If you want you could get a 4.88 R & P and just put it in. Not a terrible job.

    I should have mentioned why I was looking for another axle. At some time in its life the left outside axle broke and damaged the axle tube where lower trunion bearing race is located. The race is sloppy in the tube. It was patched up and not obvious until I disassembled it. So I am not trying to regear the axle I want to replace it. Just thought the 4:88 might work better for me in this relative flat part of the country.
    Thanks again

    Well, that explains that. Finding a 4.88 rear should be on the list also. Can't mis match them.
    Well, I did that once, got away with it, but don't do as i did. Do it right.
