    Jeez. I got bored the other day and called Dynatrac to get prices on some of their new, badass Dana 60's. Holy moly, it was way worse than I thought it was going to be. Check this out. For 35 spline, Dana 60 rear with a Detroit locker and disc brakes: $3100. Here is the bad part. 35 spline inner and outer, Dana 60 front, ARB air locker, Warn hubs, etc: $5200.
    Ouch. If money was no object, I would definitely buy from them, but when its time for new axles I think I'll stick to the junkyards. Anyone here actually bit the bullet and got a couple of these???

    Dana 60 Front axle for $300? In your profile it says Humble, not too far from Houston where I'm at.
    You know of an actual d60 for $300 near you? Email me at kyu4@netzero.net and let me know.

    Man, they must be proud of their stuff........boneyard shop for a 14 bolt and build it right might set you back $1000........Brian on this board (look on the parts for sale board) has a complete set of 1 ton axles front and rear including a Dana 60 front with 4.56 gears for $1500 +/-. Dynatrac cannot be that much better!!!!!!!!!
