Which Dodge trucks got the 8.75" rear?

Im searching for 8 3/4" housings, so I can cut the ends off and weld them on the dana 60. Which trucks and what years did they come on? Only 2wd? I was thinking d100 and d150, about 1972 - 1985. I want to head to pull apart and search, craigslist isnt getting me far

Moser Engineering makes new housing ends for this. They are about $90 a set. That would save you a lot of work.

X2 on reman ends. Well worth getting them new - done many both ways. There are others besides Moser. Applied Racing Technology has them for $62.

I checked into both. Are the cheaper pair of housing ends the exact same as the mosers? I have a friend who bought a 'new' pair awhile ago from a locol shop and they didn't fit right. The mosers look like they are brand new cnc machined, and I can't tell if the others are new or reconditioned

The Moser ends are CNC machined and I've used many sets of them. They have always worked well for me. I have no experience with the others.
