If something works and works well why go through the expense to change it?

Some things do change on them. Brake types, spring pad locations, brake line locations, abs sensors, differentials, axle widths, etc..

Like the Dana 44's & 60's. Have been around since the 1960's but there are literally thousands of variances.

Lol like they've never changed anything that was good. 4.9 300 straight six 7.3 powerstroke. Just to name a couple.

But those few things like stuff you have listed was probably changed to make it better for the specific application it was being used in.

This is true. But they probably had their reasons be good or bad as to why they changed them. Maybe less weight, looking for better fuel economy, trying to find better ways to get the same or more power. As to whether they successfully accomplished any of this is a different conversation.

I'm pretty sure the 7.3 was dropped because of emissions but I've got no idea on why they dropped the 4.9

What do we like to buy? New things. Newer is better according to most (dumbasses) consumers. Innovation is not only based on improving, but on sales as well.

Finished another scholarship day at the elevator. Apparently I busted *** because the manager said he would be sending me a paycheck for these days even though I an getting the equivalent of $500/day throughout the year.
Just a nice little bonus!
