My friend recently bought a 1981 GMC 7000 series 4x4 flatbed.
It has a 366 Big Block, 5spd trans, Rockwell X-fer case & front axle, Eaton rear axle.
We're trying to identify the front axle. We searched the net & found no info.
The previous owner stated it's an old Forestry service truck.
The truck was converted to 4wd (4wd on a 7000 was not a factory option)
There's a chassis builder tag on the cab (I'm waiting for a pic of that)

Here are some pics... (I'll post better pics soon)

Not a top loader style, this is what the Rockwell tag says (the ratio is 7:17!!!...)



It has the standard Rockwell 6 lug pattern, brake drums & Selectro lock-outs.



Here's the truck, 2 stick X-fer case, the levers are on the passengers side.



Anyone know what type of Rockwell axle this is?

This was the best I could come up with but it doesn't match the tag.

Thanks for the help...
Found out the axle is a Rockwell F-106.
The same axles used in monster trucks!!!
My friend was happy to find that out. Very Happy
