    Don\'t you just hate parts vendors??

    So I called PORC from the pirate board to order a couple tow straps, tree saver and some d-ring shackles. We get done with my order and I ask him again what the price was for a Detroit locker for my D60. Before he gave me the lowest price I've found (as of then) of $470. While he's looking it up he starts telling me about Warn raising all their prices 5-27% due to rising stel cost and how an elctic locker he sold was higher than it was before. I'm thinking, "Oh crap, how much more money do I have to save now before I can buy my locker? " He says the price will be $449...$21 less than before and this price hasnt been raised yet...SOLD!!!
    So now I have a Detroit locker, 35 spline outer shafts and my Warn premium hubs to install

    All I need now is a Doubler and I'm all set

    Got my rear yoke in just a few minutes ago (thanks Randy /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif ) and the new 57" rear springs are scheduled to arrive tomorrow... happy, happy, joy, joy

    Although I would love a detroit up front, I couldn't resist my $304 lock right.
