Need information on the rear ends under 2001 E250ís

I was looking at the rear end under an E250 in a salvage yard today. The date code is 11/00 so I am assuming that means 2001. The axle code on the data plate said 35. I thought it was going to be Sterling. Nope, when I looked underneath I figured it was a Dana 60. It had Dana stamped clear as day on the cover. But it looks different. It does not look like the 60ís I have and have had. I could not find 60 stamped anywhere on it. So, what is it? Also, what lug pattern do they have? I did not have a tape measure on me so I could not verify if it is the same lug pattern on the truck I want to install it under. I was looking at it for a 96 F250 with the old standard eight lug pattern. Oh yeah, this rear end did not have the hubs sticking out like 60ís and Sterlingís. I have seen that on the smaller 14 Bolt but I have not seen it on a Ford. Can anyone bring me up to speed on what this van has?

Sorry, I should have been more specific. I meant the rear end was a semi float eight lug. It also had disc brakes if that helps.

Should have the 8x170 bolt pattern the vans switched patterns the same time the trucks did... it may be a regular dana 60?... I thought the E150s had the small axles and the E250's & E350s had the bigger axles?

The kug pattern is what realy concerns me. I have heard the vans kept the old pattern for a while. I wish I had my tape measure when I went out there.

Sounds like your familiar with the Sterling and Dana 60. The Sterling was semi-float 9.75" The 60 was either semi or full float. Its probably a 70 that you saw, Dana 80's were in the duallys.

There were 2 D70's ( 70-2U & 70TR ) TR is the heavy duty version. The 70-2U is nearly identical to the D60. The 70TR has a big cast rib that goes from axle tube to axle tube across the top of the pumpkin, it also has 5-bolt flanges for the backing plates vs 4.

As far as I know the bolt pattern for the E series never changed and its still 8x6.5 ( 8x165mm ) Maybe it changed in the last couple years but back then.

Axle code: 35 — 4.09 ratio, non-limited slip (E-250, S-250, E-350, S-350)
Code 35 — 4.09 ratio, non-limited slip (E-250, S-250, E-350, S-350)

Cool, thanks. Now I have to decide if I want to go with a semi float rear.

I just re-read your first post, I missed the part about the hubs, looks like its the semi-float 60. The complete axle is identical to all other 60's other than the hubs/axle shafts. The cover on the Sterling will look the same as the bigger ones but it is semi-float too and with smaller guts inside.

Being since it will be going in a 3/4 gasser, I think a semi float 60 would be fine.
