 you need to do some measuring up to work out the prop lengths, i have a list of most of the prop lengths that were available, on the 2wd dodge 50 the rear section was the same on all vehicles which were not seo, ( prop driven generators / compressors for example) the rear section on yours should be 125.4 cm / 49.37 inch BUT might have been fitted with an early 128.5cm / 50.61 inch though the chances are slim, you might need to get your rear section cut and balanced to size, i don't know if the flanges are the same diameter as your prop, i know the front prop is thinner but think the flanges are the same size as the rear on a 4x4 but don't know if a 4x4 is the same as a 2wd, i sold the only 4x4 prop i had a couple of months ago.

Best thing to do is to work out where you are going to mount it and get some measurements of what you need, i have some prop sections and i have a new and really strong and thicker (bus special) front section that might be of use to you, try to work out the lengths you are gonna need, there were so many variations on the 50 series which includes the 4x4 versions, the transfer box you have, is it ex mod stock? the mod had a different box from the civilion 4x4 version, so is your starter vehicle above ex mod or civilion, thats a good place to start, if ya not sure, pop up the chassis / vin number here.

 Ummmmm looks  civilian to me, the chassis cross members look standard, not mod spec by the looks of it, also looks like the end of a lockheed Load sensing valve and am sure the RB44 had a midliner one with a different attachment to the axle....oh bejezus i am a nerd

Greg / Joe  if you have a look at pic above of my transferbox can you confirm is it a transferbox for a rb44. I am looking at the parts manual on the dodge website and the hi lo gear is cable operated and if you look at my picture I can't see how a cable would operate  the hi lo gear

Air activation was the standard on s75's and the RB44s i have driven also had air actuated systems, not sure if the standard was cable though,

 Dont know if you have moved on a lot  since this posting , from looks of the box I`d say that there is a Vacuum operated diff lock actuator . I think that heavier Utility company trucks were Air operated as with brake system ?  This may well be a MOD RB 44 transfer box.   They are useable with slight mods as detailed on this website years ago by one member who fitted one to his RB75.

 Probably too late. !!   I also confirm this is a Vacuum operated diff lock .   On photo you can see the diaphram housing top left . If you are searching for the missing parts,   try Range Rover classic, years 1970 to 1980, they had the same  knobswitch  and the 3 vacuum pipes.        rgds  lr exporter
