Custom Differentials


Dana/Spicer Differentials
Here at Hicks 4×4 we believe that the superior design of the Dana differentials makes them the most durable, strongest, and most widely used differential of any other manufacturer.  Vehicle manufactures seem to think so as well.   Dana differentials were used at one time or another by all of the major manufactures including some that do not even exists anymore.  They were used on the front, on the rear and on both ends in a lot of applications. They were used by Jeep clear back in the early 1940’ all the way up to the present in 11/2 ton pick-up trucks and Motorhomes. They ranged from the small Dana 23’s all the way up to the big Dana 80’s with many sizes in between. We prefer to modify the Dana 44 and Dana 60 differentials to your specifications for your S.U.V. application. We will assemble them with your choice of width, brakes, ratios, differentials, axles, and pinion off-set and angles. 

FRONT DANA 44 Custom-built Dana 44 front differential to fit your S.U.V. We will build one to your specifications and options. We offer them in different widths and pinion angles.). You can order just a housing and axles or one complete with Disc Brakes, locking hubs, your choice of ratios, (2.73’s to 5.89’s) and differentials ( standard to ARB’s) assembled ready to install (complete axle shown above). We use Dana axles with the large u-joints and Dana gears (standard ratios) with all Timken bearings. We also offer standard width differential for full size trucks with the same options.
