    drive around, check the local paper, talk to people, and be patient. i am sure that's the cheapest way to get a set. i picked up a 3/4 for 300 buddy of mine picked one up for 400, i'm talking about a complete truck too. and there is another around there, just got to find it [​IMG]

    Living in rural wisconsin, we do things a bit different here. No garbage service, so it's dump runs and recycle to the max, so when I was doing my annual can run (yeah, it's a pickup load overflowing), i noticed a 3/4 ton @ the boneyard. Asked what ratio was in 'em, and he didn't know. Old farm truck, body shot, no bed, and tranny blown. Asked if they were in good shape, again, unknown, but said they should be. Asked how much and they were $100/each. Turned out to be 4:10s and a direct bolt in for my suburban! Had to go through the brakes however, but figured for that price, it'd be worth it!

    Keep lookin! they're there, but hiding real well!

    The easiest way, buy some off of for sale section of Colorado K5. It might not the be the cheapest, but it's one of the few places that always has a used set of 3/4 axles for sale (usually $400-$600). I don't know where you live but there always seems to be a set for sale within 500miles of my house.
