    I am seriously thinking about saying screw this building an axel thing and buying a rebuilt one from Dynatrac or Boyce Equipment...Has anyone ever dealt with eaither of these companies? Boyce has their prices online, Dynatrac has a long distance # I need to call..Any idea what kind of damage they can do to a checking account..or a second mortgage for that matter? Fourwheeler had an article that said Dynatrac has a dana 60 that will directly replace the stock 10 bolt, same lug pattern, brakes ect...I dont want to call them thought someone here may know

    I seem to recall reading other posts here about Dynatrac being way pricey -- two to four grand for a built D-60. 'Smore than I can afford anyways ;-)

    Try the "search" thing on your toolbar (Main Index... Search... Edit Profile) and look for Dynatrac.

    Yea. For 6 lug Dana 60's, 35 spline axles, and everything else they quoted me 2200 for the rear and (gasp) 3700 for the front axle.
    I called Boyce and got a free catalog. Their stuff is tons cheaper.

    I bought from Boyce 14-Bolt $1050, Dana 60 $1700. Add $ for lockers. Great service, always have an answer when I call. Everything inside is brand new - seals, gears, axles, etc. I think the only thing they "reused" on mine were the spindles. Had to have a new spindle sent out cuz of a groove worn into one side. Haven't had a problem yet...

    Dynatrac claims that thier axels are made with ALL bran new parts No rebuilds!! That is most likly one of the reason behind the VERY high prices!!

    I just cant justify paying as much for the front axel as I did for the entire truck!!! I can understand the GASP!!! So It is safe to say Dynatrac = 2nd Mortgage...:-)

    A big reason why the Dynatrac axles (the 6-lug Dana 60's) are so expensive, is that they have to be custom built as they were never offered from the factory.

    Something to consider if buying the 6 lug front Dana 60 from Dynatrac is that if you damage your hub/rotor you have to get the replacement from them. You can't go to the local auto parts store or a wrecking yard and pick up a new part.
