according to this site, axles should be around 61" http://carnut.com/specs/frear.html

another site with good info
http://77cj.littlekeylime.com/Dana44.htm

61" is good width size for YJ or TJ.. just slightly larger than stock

It's a rear dana 60 , 5 bolt (5 on 5 1/2) 1967 f150 (Heavy half)Narrower the a reg F150 but still 31 spline axles and he has 4 more sets of axle shafts

The front he has is a 74? Early Bronco D44

some of the early bronco stuff is still drum brake, and the early bronco 44 is low pinion and uses smaller u joints than a regular 44. id go with a 31spline 8.8 out of an exploder over the 60(unless the 60 is full float, just thinking for weight, the strength difference you wont notice)

The early bronco after 72 are high pinion and use the larger u joints ,


Also the rear 60 is nice because it's cheap the convert to disc brake. the explorer is also the wrong bolt pattern for this appication as it's 5 on 4.5 instead of the 5 on 5.5 that Kevin is looking at to match up with the front

id re check your information, they are not high pinion unless its a cut down 77-79 fullsize 44. and the u joints are smaller than the regular 77-79 hp 44, and before 72 they were only a dana 30, not a low pin 44
