    I have a 78 Blazer. I already have a 14 bolt rear that I have rebuilt. I am looking to buy a 1 ton (Dana 60) front that is complete. Does anyone know where I can get an aftermarket 1 ton front from. Ive checked out Curries web site, but from what I could tell, they mainly deal with rear ends.
    thanks,
    Mike

    Find a complete truck, buy it, use the D60 and part the rest!

    Hey Mike,

    With your permission, PM me your email. I will pass it along to Rios, the gentleman I bought my Dana 60 from. I paid $1299.00 for it, and it cost $325.00 to ship to Fort Hood, TX. He rebuilds them with:

    New rotors
    New hubs/studs
    New wheel bearings and seals
    New Brake pads
    New Calipers (if necessary)
    New Lockout Hubs (Warn)
    Degreases
    Paints Auto Black

    I received mine and it was in excellent condition. My speed shop who re-did the gears said the job was done right. He specializes in Dana 60's. If you don't want to PM me, I can give you his email address. YOU need to let him know I referred you. You won't be dissappointed.

    Thanks!

    Manny

    Here are a couple of pics of my D60 I got from him:

    Most importantly,

    Thank you for shining the light of Christ. I appreciate your commitment to him. It inspires me. Manny

    I think I've found another one, need to get ahold of the guy and see what the deal is. I find them all the time, just don't have the money to get them....
