I don't, it's probably a NOS, junkyard or dealership item.

Well, they should be the same or similar up to '93 at least, maybe even the 94-up will work. They are all solid front axles until '03, when the half-tons got IFS.

The last time I researched these they were all their own part numbers for the full time front axle. The later years and axle types changed dust shield part numbers a dozen times.

You won't find these at Dodge, maybe NOS but we need more info.

Is this the original full time D44(3500#) or the optional D60(4500#) axle? Or something else?

Most dust shields are removed by the monster mudder type guys because they dont want mud getting caked between the shield and rotor , so I would recommend posting in the classifieds at many of the dodge forums on the web. ramchargercentral.com is the most active for used parts classifieds but try them all.

W200
D44 rotor would be around 12.82" (1 part number) 3736760
D60 rotor would be around 12.88" (2 part numbers) 3821520(R) & 3821521(L)

RC(AW) & W100
D44 rotor would be around 11.75" (1 part number) 3736760

You might try www.junkyarddog.com and put in a request. Even if you get a cracked one you can have it welded.
