2-speed rear axle

I was wondering if there has ever been a 2 speed rear axle for ford trucks? I recall a friend saying his old power wagon had a 2 speed rear end. Does anybody know? Make model, experience?

medium and large duty trucks, yes. pickups, no.
except for the model t.
the model t could be had with a 2 speed rear. if i remember correctly, it was called a ruxtle or ruxby rear.

The smallest one was the EATON 1350

It was used in the F6/600 trucks from about 1947 - 1960. (1.5 TON )

They're pretty scarce nowadays. replaced by a larger axle for F-600's in th elate 50's.

It would be way too big for any pickup..... PLUS, the highest ratio ws 5.83:1 HIGH and 8.11:1 Low


cheers,


Rick
