    I just found a 1986 crew cab 4X4 1 ton. Dana 60 oh yea, First one I have seen in NY after looking 14 months and its single wheel rear. I was just wondering what every one else had paid to have the Dana 60 dream come true.

    You will probably hate me for this and I have witnesses too but I only paid $50 to get my D60. I lucked out and found it in the junk yard the day that they were having a 1/2 off sale. the guy that rang me up didnt know what it was. Normally, if you can find one at the junk yard, they can sell for $150 to $300. But you have to go through them. I only had to do the brakes and replace the ujoints on the axle shafts.

    Aside from Mr. Luckydog...........xtrmwhlr (spelling is wrong) expect around 1000-2000 for the D60 alone...........if you can find one. Brians60's was selling new in the crate D60's for $1500...........of course he no longer has any [​IMG].

    Buying a K30 truck seems to be the way to go, plus you get the tranny and tcase to boot. Then add another 500-1000 for the 14BFF (with a Detroit installed, etc.).

    All of this adding up to around $3500 in reality with new wheels, tires, brake lines, raised steering block for the D60, blah, blah, blah. But probably worth every penny...........and the coolness factor and peace of mind will be worth it.

    Just rationalize it as if you are "re-newing" your old truck. That's what I use for my justification...........lol.

    I just paid $1300 for an 85 1 ton 4x4. The guy was asking $2000 but cash in hand can do wonders when bargaining. I bought it just for the axles he rest of the truck is really rotted out not a salvageable piece of sheet metal on it. The motor is shot, tranny seems ok, and the transfer case is in 4 hi with the linkage disconnected. Hope this gives you an idea. Depending on the condition of the truck I was willing to spend $2500 but a 1 ton for that kind of money can be hard to find.

    I just bought a dully 4X4 for $400. dana 60 front and Dana 70 rear with 4.56's. I know of a truck that has a single front and a duel rear. I am going to ask him if he wants to trade.

    I just bought an '88 V30 (w/ D60 and 14bolt ff) for $1750. Asking price was $2600. Has 454 with auto trans and 45K miles. No rust. Pretty good truck. I bought it for the axles and then plan to either sell it with my old 1/2 ton axles on it or part it out, whichever is easier. Book is much higher. Have seen $5K asking price in my area.

    I just looked at the truck again today. Its a 1986 3
    +3 4X4 with a steel utility bed on the rear. The truck has a standard and a np 205. 4.56 geared dana 60 and a 14 bolt. 350 with headers, intake, carb, ect. I think I will try for around 1,500. I have seen a few dually styles around but the cost to upgrade is way to much, I already have one at the shop and don't plan on using it. Also thatK30 guy I have a local salvage yard that I do business with for my shop and I personally Have counted 37 np 205's of all different spline counts in one of the yard storage vans. Also a few more in trucks. I can get a deal on a package.

    Where are you located extreme, I live about 2 miles away from 3 different wrecking yards and I'd probably be lucky to count 20 t'cases. That reminds me, I need to go look for a FF14 bolt and a D60.

    A broken 84 k5 and lots of mud, it sucks to be me
