    (UPDATE) Well good news, I am getting one this saturday for $600 /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif, complete from hub to hub. I even know that is acceptable /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

























    Is $850 a good enough deal to pick up a dana 60, the only thing I need to get is the hubs. I am so excited, next week I will be joining the 1-ton club if I get this dana 60 /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif. And the guy at the junk yard is scoring me a 14ff w/4.56 for $450. What do you guys think?

    $450 is good for a 14bff in so-cal. Buy it and enjoy it. You might find a rusty one in detroit or some other god foresaken place for $150.

    Yeah, watch out for those rusty axles, they're worthless compared to a cleaned painted one. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    I havent bought it yet, I have found 14's for 250 at the bone yard but I figure this guy is going to setup some 4.56's for me so it might be ok. Oh and I forgot that is with a detroit. But my main concern is the price of the 60, I dont know how much a set of hubs will cost for it. I think 850 is good for the dana 60 minus hubs but I just want to be sure so I dont get bamboozeled /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    In hubs, do you mean lock outs? they are between $150-$200 for a set depending on brand, if you mean the bearings hubs, then the price is a little high, the hubs will run you about $180 ea for a SRW set not counting bearings and the other extras to actually get them on.

    hey man,id do the 60,but the 14 is a little steep if ya ask me.I would really check around before "scoring".I think he might be scoring on you if the 14 bolt is all old.Make sure and count the teeth,and INSIST on removing the diff cover....Jake /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Where do you live? I think the prices are just rediculous in So-Cal. I just paid 325K for a rental house, and everybody says that is a really awesome cheap price. Heck, gas is $2.17 a gallon here.

    That equity thang is sickening. I bought my first house for $220K 4 years ago, now it's worth 420K on a bad day. The rental I bought 2 months ago for 325K appraised during escrow for 340K because of the 2 month escrow. 2 months, 15K? Nice, but where's the ceiling?

    A D60 for $850 with no hubs is maybe a fair price if it's local and in really nice shape. Then you will spend probably $400+ or more on SRW hubs and bearings. Plus if it needs to be rebuilt, re-geared, brakes, tie-rod, etc. It adds up real quick. It's almost better if possible to bite the bullet and buy one that has the right gears, locker, and ready to bolt in and go even though it's pricey.

    The 14 bolt if in good shape with 4.56 gears and a Detroit locker for $450 is a good deal. If you buy one for a $100 bucks you'll more than likely have no gears or locker and those aren't cheap to buy and install.

    450.00 seems high for a 14ff. it might be cheaper to have one shipped to you. Also 850.00 seems high for a 60 with no hubs, They will run another 250.00-300.00. Is this off a dually? by the time you get new bearings and seals and everything probably another 100.00+ /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I gave $800 for my D60. It is torn down and needs all new seals and bearings, but it is complete. Its out of a single rear wheel K30 truck, and has 4.10 gears. Got the non matching 3.73 ratio 14 bolt with it for another $50.

    Thats why Cali is a suck-ass state. Robs you of your money and you are left with nothing in your pockets. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif Don't like it? Move out. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
