Is a 9.25 diff. the same as a Dana 60 ??
Life is confusing enough, if these are the same why must engineers make so many different names for the same thing ?

no.

a 9.25 is the light duty axle used in 1/2 ton pickups and ramchargers. it has a C clip design axle retention and comes in a 5 lug patter. most common is the 5x5.5 and the early (70s) 5x4.5

the Dana 60 is the heavy duty axle. it is used in 3/4ton and 1 ton applications and features a full floating axle design. it is most common to be a 8 lug however rare variants have it in a 5 lug. the D60 was also used to back up Hemis in Chrysler Muscle cars.

2 different axles

These are two very different axles. One is built by Chrysler, the other axle is produced by Spicer / Dana Corp.

Easy to tell the difference. 9.25's differential cover looks like a stop sign, and has 12 bolts. The Dana 60's front and back are 10 bolt. So are the dana 44 fronts and dana 70 and 80 rears.
