The Dana is slightly stronger, but also slightly heavier. The 9" has he drop out gear carrier, which is nice. I don't know, both are good rears. I have a 9", but only because that's what I am familiar with.

Yes, Dodge trucks, Dana axles are common in all domestic trucks in 3/4 ton or heavier.

The Ford nine inch is what they use in Top Fuel for 6000 horsepower cars. Your chances of breaking the center section are very slim, if you break anything it will probably be an axle shaft. The Dana 60 is more apropriate for a tow vehicle. That is what it was designed for. But because the 9inch has a pocket bearing on the pinion, the pinion gear doesn't try to walk away from the ring gear, when you step on the gas. Only the Ford 8 inch, Ford 9 inch and all Toyota drop in's have this pocket bearing. The best recipe for a tough rear-end, Ford 9 inch with whatever gears you use and some 31 spline axles. You can buy some Moser axles too for between $100- $200 a piece. Add a locker and you won't be disapointed.
