Dodge Ram 19942002 (BR/BE)

Axles

The Dodge Ram featured a wide variety of axles. For the front axle of 4x4 Rams, a Dana 44 was used on all 1500 Rams and some, early, light duty 2500 Rams. However, most of the 2500 and all 3500 Rams used Dana 60 front axles.
The 1500 Rams and some early light duty 2500 Rams used a 9.25 Chrysler axle in the rear. A Dana 60 rear axle was used on heavy duty 2500 V8 Rams. A Dana 70 rear axle was used in 2500 Rams with a V10 or a Diesel/Automatic transmission combination.
A Dana 80 rear axle was used on 2500 Rams with a manual transmission and diesel engine combination and all 3500 Rams.
The front solid axles in these rams were unique in the fact they didn't feature Locking hubs, but featured a Center axle disconnect. The 2002 2500 and 3500 Rams saw the eventual phase out of the Center axle disconnect, in favor of front axles that were permanently locked in. Dodge continues to feature front axles like this for their 2500, 3500, 4500, and 5500 trucks.

--------------------------------------------------------------
i did find this on a forum for off roaders

I have a Dana 60 rear end, & took off the drum to check the brake-shoe linings. In doing so, I discovered that there is only ONE nut (hexagonal 2 9/16", not a "6 notch" nut) keeping the outer-bearing in place! (there is a small wedge, which friction fits into the key-way, to prevent the nut from loosening).

According to the manuals I've read, there is an inner
adjusting-nut, lock-ring, lock-nut. You torque the adjusting-nut to 50 ft-lb while rotating drum, back off the adjusting-nut 60 to 90 deg or so (so that the lock-ring will "mate" in alignment hole), & then tighten the lock-nut to xx ft-lbs (one manual states 65 ft-lbs, but that is for a 1 ton Dana 60 front axle. I never got a figure for a Dana 60 rearend locknut).

Since I only have 1 nut to work with, how should I install it? What I did was, tighten it to 50 ft-lbs, but I didn't back it off any. Then, I just put in the wedge in the keyway, to keep the nut in place.

Is the above OK, I'm concerned I don't have the locknut too tight to damage the outer-bearing.
I'm also worried that if this wedge ever came loose, the nut would come loose, then the tire/drum/axle could conceivably come loose during driving. There's about 1/4" left of threads on the axle-housing, so I think I could go & buy an additional adjusting nut & lock-ring.
Question: Have any Dana 60's come equipped like mine, which have only 1 nut? This doesn't sound right, it needs the redundancy of the adjusting-nut, lock-ring, lock-nut.

answer was
howdy / thats the way newer dana 60,s are / that nut with the little lock is all you need / I never had one fall out / the only way it can is if the lock nut wears out from taking it apart to many times / if you set the pre-load right and the lock gets a good bite in the nut your all set / PRE-LOAD / snug it down tight and then back it off a little till you get a tiny bit of free play / doing wheel bearings is an art form to get it right / not to tight not to loose / good luck
