    how much would gears and a locker put someone back?
    i bought a 79 gmc k35 for $500 and sold my d44 front and 14 bolt from the parts truck for $250. That means I got all my parts for $250.... now i just need 4.56 gears for my d60 front..... /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    Gears and a locker would probably cost about $900 if you did the work yourself. Figure on $500 for a detroit, $200 for gears and $150 for the master install kit. If you wanted a selectable locker then add another $500 to that. And most 4x4 shops will charge at least $300 to do a gear and carrier install.
