    Does anyone know how much is a good price for a military surplus 10 bolt front and rear ends?

    Anyone have a website link to a place to buy new front or rear ends?

    Thanks.

    Email me if you can. scottnj@cfl.rr.com

    Check the for sale forum. There is a member selling brand spanking new, in the crate, 10 bolts for pretty cheap. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    A good price for them would have to be "nearly free" because all the military 10-bolts that I've ever seen have the very highly undesirable 3.08 gears. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif You're looking at spending a chunk-o-cash to swap them to something more useful.

    My blazer already has that gear ratio. I just thought since I was planning on buying all new brake components that this would be better being all brand new.

    Thank you for the link. Looks like the same one. Only the shipping will be a problem. So heavy

    Colemans is the first place I came across. Does anyone know of a surplus place in or near florida that would have these?
