Default front axle

Taking the front axle apart on the buggy.
Trying to figure out what it came out of.
It is a Dana 60. With ball joints. Nut on the end of the axle.
That's all I got so far.

Don't worry there's still two tires on the ground.

Going through it to try and see if any thing is broken or hurt before I take it out again.

Dodge I would guess. Ford unit bearings ran lockouts on them.

Does anyone know what the toqure specs are for the unit bearing abd the axle nut?
I have look around on the internet and the only thing I have found is 175ft lbs for the axle nut.

If I'm reading it right looks like 50-70lb-ft but not guaranteeing anything
