Questions: I have a 63 Lincoln Continental that has the Dana 53 axle. Can the 4.09 work in my car? I noticed the gears say for truck application. I cant imagine why they would not work?

Questions: Is this the same gear set that would go into the Dana 53 installed in a 1959 Jeep FC170?

If you have a Dana 53 with the 4.09 ratio it would be the same.

Questions: Are there gears available for a dana25 to match your Dana 53 4.09s?

Sorry, I don't believe that is available for the Dana 53. We do sell a SATURN overdrive that would give you more top end.

Questions: Hello, I have a 1947 flat bed 2wheel drive Willys truck with a clam shell type rear end. I can find no tags on it, I have put a V 8 in the truck and I need to change gears out in rear end. I am running 4500 RPM's to go 55MPH. Any suggestions? Thanks

That is a Timken rear end. On that rear end there really are no different ring and pinion options other than what is stock.
