Dana 44

I'm sure you're talking about the front axle. The F-100 4 x 4 would have had a Dana 44 front axle, with a 9" Ford rear axle, with 5 x 5.5" bolt pattern. The F-250 would have had a Dana 60/61 rear...

Only trying to help

In my posts I mentioned all kinds of things that would improve gas mileage. Tonneau covers or lower the tailgate or use a net tailgate; highway tires over lugged off road tires, compression ratio,...
