    I am hopeing to be out of Iraq by Christmas, and want to do a little winter wheelin. Before I left, I messed up my 60, any one know of a quality rebuilder in Colorado? I know its gonna be expensive, because the hubs and axles are f-uped, so where would be the cheapest. How much will this run? Any help would be much appreciated!

    What do you need to fix on it? I would do the work yourself..It is really pretty easy. Hell I could help you for the cost of a few beers...

    Thought about doing it myself(haven't let anyone touch the truck but me yet), but don't have the time. I am stationed down in GA, so I will be going to CO on leave when I get back. Here is what is wrong: the front drivers side axle shaft has some play, enough so that the 4x4 wont work. I bought a spring and put it in between the hub and shaft for a temporary fix(but managed to f up the hub) the pinion oil seal is gone, and I can't seem to find the right replacement, the one that I get from part shops is wrong. I don't have a huge budget to drop into this, so I may end up doing it my self, but I just wanted to be able to drive it when I was home. Thanks for all offers, I still might take you up on them. Will probly be up in ft collins a bit, but mostly in the Denver & conifer areas.
