    $75 for a complete Dana 44 with selectro hubs(need all but housing,gears and carrier), all the rear brakes setup for my 14 bolt axleshafts and hub assmebly and a nice bench seat out of a 90 pickup that folds forward really nicely. If it fits right should be the perfect seat for my K5. Like my dad said his 90's seat wore like iron.

    most yards think the same its just this one yard. Hes great. He has a Cellphone tower on the property so he gets a couple thousand a month so he doesn't need much business for him. The majority of his business is steel. We take all of our scrap stuff to him to be nice. He takes care of us we take care of him.

    One of my local yards just sold me a Dana 60 and 14 bolt from a military truck for $400 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Then I got new seats from a '91 Blazer for $30...

    If this guy had 1 ton 4x4 I'd have a Dana 60 and I doubt it would cost me more than $250. Too bad he doesn't /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif. Military Dodge though, haven't looked might have rockwells.

    It should have a d60 or d44 front, with 4.10 gears.
