    So, there I was walking out of the store with a Mt Dew and a red bull. This guy was walking by me and I go to get in my Jimmy and asks if this is mine. Well after a few minutes of talking to him, a 3/4 ton set of axles pops up. He says he is fixing to move and has to clean out his yard to move to a new house. (Wife tired of looking at it) Anyways he says 500 for the 14bolt FF and 10 bolt front and he will throw in a set of 15x12 Alcoa wheels. I haven't seen anything yet. What do you think? He also mentioned he had an 85 Blazer he has got to get rid of as well, minus motor. Let me know and Spence I might need your help in the near future.......

    Around here 14 bolt ff go for about 150.00 a 10 bolt is a P.O.S. Take the 500.00 and save up maybe another 500.00 and get a pair of 60/14 axles........

    I bet you can talk him down a bit....Look them over closely.

    The right set of Alcoa's would be sweet /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The pair of 3/4 ton axles by themselves for $500 is about top dollar (not counting what some junkyards are smoking when they set their prices). I'm not sure what the alcoa's are worth but they help make it a fair deal I think. Not a killer deal but a fair one.
