Thanks to Jim Forbes for the wonderful information on rear end choices.
This is just the type of information that I have been needing. I still
have a question.
What is the widths of the original rearends of AD trucks. Specifically
for a 1951 1/2 ton and a 1954 3/4 ton.
Neither of my trucks currently have a rearend and there are not a lot
AD trucks on the road here in southern Louisiana to look at (and it is
whole lot easier to ask than to crawl under an old truck amongst the
brush/weeds at a junk yard here in swamp country - I'll crawl under the
trucks when I know what I am looking for).
51 AD 5 Window 1/2 ton
54 AD 5 Window 3/4 ton
