    I found a set of 2 1/2 ton axles out of a military Duece and a half for $600. They are top loading style axles. The gear ratio is 6.72 to 1. So, the bigger the tire the better with these. The guy said he has almost all the parts to mount chevy truck caliper and disk brakes to the axles. He also said the axles would probably need some new seals. He doesn't have any driveshafts and there are no spring perches of any kind on the axles. He said he could throw in some 8 to 10 leaf spring packs for another $75. Does this sound like a good deal? Thanks!!

    No. It's a rip off. Where were they again?

    Not a bad price. Lots of work to put them under anything, though. Clearing the toploaders=lots o lift.
