    today at a parts yard i just spotted a full floater, srw, 4.56 non locker from an old army truck. its been sitting for who knows how long without tires on the truck and about 5 inches in the dirt and mud. it appears to not be leaking anywhere and seems to be in good shape on the outside. they want 300 for it, and my question is whats the going rate on 14ff used? oh im in south texas if it matters?

    Take off the diff cover if you can. It should have a Detroit Locker if it came from a CUCV. Why would it not? If it does not have a locker, its a little over priced, at least here.

    $100-$150 tops as you will have to completely rebuild it if it's been sitting that long.

    I just sold a 14bFF with 4.56 gears open diff, $150. I had it listed for $200 but I was motivated. I only had it listed 1 week. I've had 2 more inquiries since, if that gives you any idea.

    I agree, $300 is high. Although it does seem to be somewhat to find 4.56 equipped 14b unless they came out of a CUCV. I would expect to pay about $500 for a 14bFF with a Detroit out of a CUCV M1008 or M1028.

    Like shane74 said about rebuilding it. If you're going to be doing that, you might as well find a cheaper 14bFF, rebuild it, and add the gears you want.
