    If it has the right gears, and is in good shape, that could be a good price /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I have found you can call all over, and each yard has a different price. They can still be found cheap I hear, but in AZ I haven't found one cheap, but my darn buddy scored one from a pull it yourself place for dirt cheap. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Unless you are buddies with the owner a slavage yard is not a good place to start looking for cheap 14bolts.
    About the only way I would pay $300 for a used 14 bolt is if it had 4:88 or better gears, and a Detroit.
    I have gotten them for $50 but the norm around here is $100.
    Check the classifieds and see if your area gets the nickle ads. There are always rigs being parted out in those.

    I wouldnt even mind paying $150 for one, just $300 sounds way to high.

    I sold a 14 FF with 4.10 and open differential on ebay for $125. I had another listed that was 4.10 and a gov-lock but it received no bids. Maybe you could check on ebay. After you do your search there is a link to the left "find items near me", that way they will be within driving distance.

    Junk yards around here ask $600 /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    I picked one up from a guy that has his own private junkyard, payed $175 for mine. Some will say I paid to much, but everyone around here is asking a lot for them.

    I think I might have found one, this guy is selling one for 150 and it has 3.73 gears so I will have to upgrade the gears but it will be a fun project.

    Ive bought two for $100 each but I dont think a good one with the right gears and open carrier for $300 is bad.....

    I paid $400 for mine rebuilt with detroit and discs. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I wouldn't pay more than $150-200 for one that was open, and I wouldn't pay anything at all for a gov lock one. I would be sure it has the gears you want as well.
