    I went to 3/4 ton axles becouse it was cheaper for me then regearing my 1/2 ton axles. Lots of people will argue then you'd have the costs of buying 8 lug rims, but I had to buy rims anyways, I just wasn't happy with the stock wheels with hub caps. Plus I like having stronger axles then the stock 1/2 tonners !!!!!

    Well you could buy a 3/4 ton front for the gears and put the 1/2 ton outers on it and sell the 3/4 ton outers to get some of your money back too. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

I don't understand why would change the outers ???

    The front will bolt straight in, for the rear you will likely need new ubolts, new ujoint for the rear shaft, and new ubolt plates (should come with the rear). A good set of 4.10 geared 3/4 ton stuff should run you no more than about $500, unless you start talking lockers and such.

    The cost depends on what deals you can find. The local junkyard quoted me $400 for a D44/14BFF combo. I bought a parts truck with the same axles for $150. Keep your eyes open for old beater trucks sitting in backyards and fields.....you never know what you might find for next to nothing. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Happy hunting! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I bought mine for $250.00 from a guy parting out a 78 3/4 Ton pick-up.
