I'm new to Dodges but have a chance to get a 78 4wd,318,4speed.Iwould like to know what front and rear axles and t cases came stock on the 78 trucks.V.I.N.#
W218F8S112691. Any help will be greatly appreicated.
The front axle should be a Dana 44, the rear axle is probably a mopar 9 1/4 but could also be a 8 3/4 inch unit. If you have a removable cover on the back of the pumpkin its a 9 1/4, if it has a removable unit on the front side, it s an 8 3/4. Your transfer case should be a NP203 full time unit.
Thanx for the fast info.If in fact it has a dana 60 rear and a np205 t case I'm gona buy it for sure.He says top speed on 31 in tires is only about 70mph so I'm thinkin 4.56 gears.Any guess's on the gear ratio?It's a 4 speed so an np435?
Again thanx for the help!
