    Not in Tucson! They want about 800 for a 14ffer! The guy I asked didnt even know what gears were in it, but he new he wanted a bunch of dough for it. A friend of mine was telling me his brother lives in south Utah and they are giving dana 60's away they're so common. He wants to make a trailer trip up there to buy a bunch.

    That jeep thing? Yah I understand it....... Like my Blazer? <a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5>http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5</a>

    Go look in your local classified ads for someone parting out a 1981-1987 half ton pickup. More than likely it will have 3.08's in it. Realistically no one wants these rear ends, except when theirs fails, so the cost isn't that much. I'd pay no more than $100 for an open differential 10 bolt (1/2 ton) axle, complete, in good shape.

    As long as its from a truck, you can swap axles easily between a 2wd and 4wd axle assembly, so 2 or 4 wd doesn't really matter.

    Why insist on counting when the ring gear has the tooth counts stamped in?

    We picked up mudhog's 14FF from a local guy that Powermad ran into for $100. Had to remove it ourselves but worth the hour for that price. Keep looking, calling, asking around.

    Got mine from a yard here in w/central Wisconsin (body gone, but drive train good) @ $100/end. Tried to check with my buddies back in Colo, and they had 'em too.. but more like $375/550 for them. (plus shipping!).
    They're out there. just have to hunt 'em down!

    Here in So Cal I got mine for 70+15 core. it was a junkyard so I pulle dit myself and saved. Some SALVAGE yards charge you more cause they pull the parts themselves and put it on a shelf for you to come and get. The Junkyard just puts the entier vehicle on the ground and first come first serve.

    I got mine from pick and pull in Oakland, CA for $120 drum to drum with e-brake cables. It's a 1980 2WD 14FF and bolted right up.

    Try Wes(ThatK30Guy)...he might have a 10 bolt rear lying around. If he doesn't he may know of places that do have em.
    He's only an hour and a half North of Wichita...

    Thanks Rene! [​IMG]

    Yeah, I have one 10B rear axle laying here. Its got 2.73 gears anyways. [​IMG] Buying it cheap and re-gearing it would be the best bet.

    Wsudu, you never told us which rear you were looking for.

    I have picked up a few 14FF's, complete hub to hub for $75, each. [​IMG]



    I'm not picking my nose...I'm just pointing at my brain!! [​IMG]

    what went in your axle? It might be easier and cheaper just to fix it. There is enough people on the board that upgraded from ten bolts tha prob have part kicking around taking up space.

    Our local yard has the 14ff/dana XX/sterling for $125....catch is that you have a core plus you gotta pay for the drums.....so whopping $29 each for drums + $30 for core.... I really dont understand the whole drum charge but whatever.....everytime we pull'em we already have the disk brake brackets ready to mount so the boat anchor cores just stay there....its easier on the back not to mention easier to get the thing out of the yard.
