    there is no best way to do it, you could go out and find a 300 dollar junk k30 with 4;56's in it, or you can call Boyce equipment and have one set up with the gears you want, locker if you want, but its gonna run i think Upwards of 2 grand, its been awhile since i talked to them so i dunno, What gears are you gonna want in it?

    well I was thinking on doing 488 gears
    and a set of 38.5 swampers.
    Is there anyone else other than boyce
    for a D60?

    there really is no best way, everything depends on variables /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    such as: some here have paid 1000 or more for a 60 only to have to go through it and rebuild it, others have paid 500 or less and bolted it up and run it, then the gears, 4.88's were not a factory option, so that will cost no matter which way you go, also how much of the rebuild and gears and locker set up you can do, how patient are you, if you can wait, you slowly build up your axle, if you want it now, maybe buying is the way to go, doesn't really answer your question, does it /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    usermember wayne on this board sometimes has 60's for sale or has a line on them, give him a shout /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
