    I picked up a free D60-FF rear today. It has 3:73's, and I can just buy a 14B for less than the cost of re-gearing it. So, my question: How much should I expect to get for it if I sell it? I know a lot of Jeep guys like 'em. I just don't know what to ask for it. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    It looks to be in good shape... just the usual dirty housing from sitting. It's been in a garage/storage so it's not real bad.

    Thanks in advance for any help or opinions..

    well whatever you expect to pay for a 14 bolt is probably around the spot. Depending on axleshafts I guess. There is such a thing as rear 60s with really low spline count(aka weak) shafts. Pull them and check them out. 30 or 32(still not sure if there is a factory 32 spline rear) will be worth the most.

    I pd #150 for my 4.56 geared Power Locked rear D 60. It depends on your market and what people want. On here with all the hub bub about 14 bolts it seems as if that D 60 is crap, when in reality it is not.

    2-$300 should be a fair price, and remember to market it to drag racers and such too.

    A Dana rear axle gives you more gearing options, while having more expensive lockers. What gears are you looking for? I have two sets of 4.10's that could be had very reasonable /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I would say that 35 spline would probably be worth the most. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif I'll keep that in mind sub, but I'll most likely just go with a 14B. I have some propects that I'm looking at right now... ones got a detroit... (homer simpson voice)MMMMMMM (homer simson voice)

    I'll just have to see what happens.

    Wow, twice! Seems odd that you said 3.73, and they say 4.56?

    I think that's just how low the carrier will go, not the ratio, - up 4.56's. It says 3.73 on the tag.

    Twice- yeah, this firestation's computer mouse is easy to "double tap" ... /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
