Look to see where the ring gear is mounted, most of your GM rears it was "straddle mounted" I.e. it was right in the middle of the rear end. On your Dana's it would be off to the right. If you could find a Dana 60 from a Chevy single wheel 1 ton, I bet the Dodge third member will fit right in. My guess is the Dodge uses a Dana 60 in the back.

Another thing you will probably find it that uses the same front brakes that Ford uses. Chevy 1 Ton duallies used Midland brakes on the front, like Ford, the single wheel 1 tons used Delco brakes on the front.

I had a 1984 Chevy 3/4 ton with a 6.2. It had 3.73 gears and the straddle mounted ring gear.

Also of the Dana 70, the axle tubes come out of the third member housing, and then taper down in size.

Ray

Have you considered adding a direct/over two speed in the center? Not often done with automatics but it does give the best of both worlds when it comes to gearing. With a little practice it's just like shifting the old spur cut transmissions without a clutch.
