    I bought a running CUCV for $2k, used the axles, driveshaft, and tailgate then sold it for 1200 as a 1/2 ton.

    Installed a D60 Detroit ($475) and upgraded to 35 spline with flanges ($400)

    ~$150 to upgrade the rear to discs...

    so about $1825 in my axles... uhg, you had to ask.

    You're lucky. My D60 needs new bearings, kingpins, and brakes. Not to mention a 4.56 and down carrier, lockright (the cheapest way to be locked up front w/o welding), gears, u-bolts, studs (top and wheel), spring plates, and a new yoke. I don't even WANT to think about cost.:1zhelp:

    So far and not finished with either.

    D44: warn shafts 450, looking at another 150 for gears, 100+ for HD cover, 100 for master install kit, 200 for u-joints. Ack - 1000.00

    14 bolt: paid 75, gears with locker were 400, probably sink another 150 in disk brakes. 625.00

    Adds up quick but most of it has been purchased over a year and a half so that lessens the impact. :doah:

    my 60 I picked up for $400 and put about $500 into bearings and seals right away. Then another $275 for a loc-right (got from a friend who bought it used, blew it up and they waranteed it and he didn't wanna deal with it anymore). Another $75 for a stub I blew up and I have a few spare hubs laying around from dana 50/60 fords on the ranch for when I blow them up. (One day will upgrade to 35 spliners). I got my 14FF for free off the farm junkyard and have about $20 into the disk conversion and I got my detroit for free (swapped out with a friends blazer before he sold it)
