    D60\'s

    I found a guy up here in the desert has D60's from millitary trucks. He only has two right now, but says he will be getting more. They come with 4.56 gears. He wants $1000 for a used one or $1200 for a rebuilt. I know these are not great prices, but they are lot better than the $5600 quote I got from an axle place. If you are interested, send me a private and I will give you his number. If you buy it and are not in the area, I can go get it for you and store it here at the house till you can come get it.

    I'll still help you. If you want to get one, you can send me the money, but I would prefer if you deal with him and I will just go get it.

    Re: D60\'s

    I really wanted to get the axles from Matt before Hollister but I think that is impossible now. Does he not check his email often? He doesn't reply back to me too quick... he's got a heck of a deal going, but I really need to know when as to plan budget wise for it.... I do like the ones he's selling. For my use they'll work fine... plus they weigh less and have all the toys with them! So anyhow... let me know if you heard from him.... if not and i can't figure out what he is doing then I will think about a Dana 60....

    Boyce must have recently jumped up the price. I had no idea they went for that much now.

    Pro'ly worth it with those gears. D60's sell for 'round $850US up here (in Canada) but with 4.10's or worse gears.

    You got it, Dynatrac. That was the quote I got for a D60, Detroit, 4'56's, and a 1350 yolk. Can you say rappage??

    Any way, sorry for the delay. The number of the guy who has them in 760-244-8060. As i said before, anyone who buys one, but can not pick it up right now, contact me and I will go get it and store it for you.

    Re: D60\'s

    Just to set the record straight, 5,600. is from Dynatrac, I think Boyce would be around 2,200 for 4.56 open, still expensive but far from 5,600.
