    I have the option of purchasing a set of axleswith aprox 30k miles on them D60/14B FF ...the rear has a Detroit Locker in it...from a military surplus auction. They are asking $1200 for the pair.
    I think it is a good deal but due to the large investment I continue to ask myself if its worth it. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    <font color="green"> Absolutely! Go get them they'll have the 4.56 gears in them since they're military. I've seen those axles go for as much as $1900 for the pair. </font color>

    Buy them or post a number so one of us can. $1200.00 is a damn good deal in my opinion.
