So I'm doing some shopping around and found this axle. What are your thoughts on it, is it a good axle to swap to my 1987 4.9 f150?

D44 6cf

4.09 D6TA AAD
603762 1

I did use the search function and did not find anything on this axle.

One concern I have is whether I would be able to swap my rotors and calipers from my 1987 f150 to it.

Here are some pics:

Not a good candidate for the swap! By the time you convert over to disk brakes(your 87 stuff will NOT work) and either change your trucks frame to except leaf springs or cut the leaf spring perches off the axle and weld on coil spring perches you could have just bought a Dana 44 from a 78-79 f150/bronco that would just about bolt in!

I know why I would do a sas on one of these trucks but I'm interested to hear why you are wanting to?

is that 5 lug axle or an 8 lug?? and what year truck is it out of.

and i can tell you this this about it. it is a 4.09 gear ratio.

and that is a disk brake axle your just looking at the dust shield.

Hmmmm.... Well, dependability mostly.... I go up to the high sierras often and don't want a ttb to fall apart on me up there in the middle of nowhere that's not my idea of fun... Have you been up there to 4x?

What do you use yours for?

78-79 f150 is the easiest swap you dont have to mess with the coil mounts on either all you have to do is drill and mount the radius arm brackets. and a pan hard bar.

and use the springs for a 78-79 truck...
