    I've been looking for a D60 front for almost a year now and haven't found the right one in my price range. A local guy posted on one of our websites that he had 2 Chebby D60 fronts for sale, advertised as 4.10 open and he said they needed going through. I went over there and the axle looked alright and I've been looking for so long I decided to take a shot and give him a low ball offer. $$$$$650 SOLD I brought it home opened it up and it's got 4.56 w/welded spiders and turns smooth as silk. New locking hubs, X-over and I'm golden :D :D :D :D Just had to share my good fortune with the CK5 crew :D Pics coming soon

    Yeah, we're planning a trip to Tellico/Grayrock/WITC (haven't decided which one) the 7/8 of OCT if you wanna tag along.

    My girlfriend thinks I'm nuts, when I popped the diff cover and started jumping up and down she thought I'd lost it :D :D Women just don't get it ;)

    I think I know what you're thinking is based on, however, if you would have gotten it for free... you would have it, and ALL the money from the others in hand. ;)

    Know what I mean, Vern .. :D

    Still anytime you can get one, and sell the other stuff .. it's "like" getting it for free, or rather a trade. :thumb:

    I got mine for $150 from the junkyard. It's a '78 Dodge unit, 4.10's, open, external drive flanges.

    I even talked the guy down from $200, but I didn't have the cajones to try for cheaper. Probably could have, but oh well. He didn't know what it was.
