    middle of the road. I have seen them with detroits for $400 or so, but if its a unit in good repair, that sounds fair.

    Yeah, it's not the best price, but I'd pay that if it were an axle ready to swap in (didn't need any seals, bearing, brake work).

    Well....like Heavy4X4 said, $250 is a good price if it is ready to swap in. If not, you'll pay about $100-$150 for bearings, races, seals etc.

    To put it in perspective, I paid $150 total for a 14BFF and 8-lug D44 with 4:10 gears. They were still attached to the truck, so I also got the sway bar, steeing box etc. I'll have about $315 in total rebuild of the 14 bolt. That includes bearings, seals, gaskets and disk brake swap parts. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
