dana 60 vs.dana 61

I installed a dana 61 rear diff last year.Anyone know if I can swap in a dana 60 carrier with 4.10 gears.It presenty has dana 61 3.55's in it now.Do I need to buy dana 61 gears and a carrier or can I use the dana 61 carrier for 4.10 gears out of a dana 60? I used to know where there was a chart for carrier breaks anyone know where that might be?

Dana 60 could only gear up as high as 3.54 I think it is. Dana 61 was to take it above that. I do not think you can gear down a Dana 61 by using a Dana 60 carrier. You may need to see if there is a THICK GEAR set available for a Dana 61, or a Ring Gear Spacer to use with a Dana 60 R&P set.

AFAIK, all you will need is the correct ring gear spacer. This place should have them:
79 Cherokee Chief 401/T18/D20, MPFI fuel injection, hydroboost, otherwise stock.
Future mods: Caddy 500/NV4500/NP205, HP D60 front D60 smooth botom rear, 5.13 gears, 35x12.50's on H1 beadlock wheels. Warn M12000 winch.
93 Wrangler 4.6 stroker/AX15/NP231,SYE,CV, OME 2.5 lift, front hub conversion/big brakes, 31X10.50's Warn M10000 winch.
