    Just got back from roadtrip up to PA. I picked up a D60 and 14ff 4.56 gears from Wayne's friend, Rodger. No matter what Wayne says, you wouldn't believe this guys parts inventory. It was simply unreal. Must have seen 10 different D60, and twice that many 14ff sittin around, not mention drivetrains (1ton) and everything in between. Even got some door panels off a K5 for cheap. Just to let you know how good of guy this Rodger is, he not only loaded the axles up, but gave me plywood to reinforce the floor of my trailer, helped me nail down some wood to anchor the axles in, and then gave me his hammer, nails, and some wood to nail them down some more, if they moved around on the trip back. There is something to be said for good ole country folk.

    If you ain't hurt, you ain't playin' hard enough.

    I am just glad it worked out for you. I have to head back over soon to pick up a few odds and ends I need. I am just glad I live so close to the redneck parts outlet!!!!!

    $1500 for a open Dana 60 and $500 for a 14ff with a detroit. Also you can get a 60 with a trak lock for $1100.

    Its a clutch-type, 2-pin spider gear traction-adding differential.

    The CUCV military trucks used these as standard equipment.

    You can buy these at any axle and gear dealer. They cost approx. around $200.

    Oh BTW did you take the full tour of the place. His wife bought a pro street Nova a few weeks ago and there is always something new to see.
