Just changed the rear differential oil and the transfer case. Need to do the front axle as well, but am not sure if I have the dana 50 or 60 axle up front. Main concern is oil capacity. Owner's manual shows for both, not sure which one I have. I think it's the 50. Also, same basic procedure as rear? Thanks is advance, Mike

One of the sites that breaks down your vehicle using the VIN will definitively tell you. Another site I use had a thread that stated: The "60 will have the number "248" cast in the web on the center chunk (248mm ring gear). The 50 will have a "229" cast in the web."

Buy 4 quarts of gear oil and change it. When it starts coming out the full plug it's full

Thanks, I'll look for the number.

Such an easy answer. Guess I wasn't looking at the big picture. If I don't need the extra oil I can return it. Thanks. I was too focused on the amount of oil. I feel inadequate.


One more thing, anyone know the torque settings on the bolts?

I don't know the torque specs but definately don't over tighten them. That one bolt with an Allen head is a pain to get out if the previous person tightened it way down.
