    My buddy has the oportunity to purchase a 1980 suburban. I went and looked at it and the body is totally rotten. It has the 14b s/f rear end and a dana 44 with 8 bolt outers. Standard tanny and I`m assuming a np205 (didn't feel like laying in the mud to see) I don't know what kind of motor (small or big block) but it does run and drive.

    My question is he can get this for 800-900$ canadian. Is it worth it? If it was a 14bolt F/F rear end for sure but a S/F?? What about the front end? He would probably buy it just for parts.

    1980 would have the slip yoke 205, they all did. It is a 205 but it has the slip yoke...
    if it seems to run good I'd snag it for sure. The price is damn good for a functioning, running 4x4.

    Whats the market like to sell the running gear? I wouldn't want it for my blazer and my buddy has a Ford, it is just one of those "I can't afford not to" deals.
