    So I've been lurking on the board for a while now and have done searches but haven't found anything relevant. I have an 83 blazer and just scored a d60 14ff for 700 bucks. I would like to get rid of the axles currently under my Blazer but have no idea what they are worth. They are both 10 bolts with auburn lockers and 4:56 gears. The rear end has a 1350 yoke and the brakes are fairly fresh. Its only been offroad a couple of times since the lift/gears/lockers upgrade. You can see the truck at http://www.jeepster.org/83blazer.htm

    The 10 bolts aren't the most favored diff's for these trucks so that's gonna hurt resale wise. However it sounds like they've had some valuable goddies added. I'm sure someone that isn't into hardcore rocks could benefit by having them.

    As a comparison for pricing...14 bolts with Detroits and 4.56's can be had for about $500. Open 14 bolts with 4.10's seem to go for as little as free and up to about $250. Front 10 bolts with 4.10's can also be had for $200 or so. Personally I'd pick a number that seems fair to you and post an ad in the for sale forum. You can always adjust your price based on the response you get.

    Don't know if that helped any...[​IMG]

    BTW...great score on the one ton stuff![​IMG]

    You guys don't waste any time!! I posted about 7 minutes ago.....thanks for the response. I guess All I'm looking for is some money to offset the cost of new tires and wheels. I think the axle install will be fairly straight forward. I don't plan on going crazy, Just the same tire/wheel combo that I have on it now but in the 16.5 flavor. Has anybody run one of the new 37 inch tall radials yet, like the BFG KO. I have been looking in the mags and online for pricing and definate sizes but they are to new. I spoke with the owner of muddytires.com and he says that they are less than 200.00 each because BFG hasn't fixed the price on them yet.

    I bought the whole truck from a friend for 2500.00 It had a blown motor and had been sitting in his parents driveway for almost 3 years. The stroker motor cost me more than the truck did but I had to have a shop build it. It was 700 miles away when I bought it. I figured instead of spending 500 to trailer it up north I would pay a shop to drop in a new motor and drive it up under its own power. I'm very happy with it. Its actually my 3rd Blazer. My first truck was a 74. I got hit and it was totalled two weeks out of the paint shop. My second was a 72. Very cool truck.

    Welcome to CK5 officially.........another Oregonian, cool.

    The guys are right, if you get $500 for the pair you will be extremely fortunate.

    Ever get up to Sand Lake?

    I've been to Sand Lake once to ride quads with a friend and I made a trip to Tillamook with the Oregon Bushhackers. Other than that I haven't had much time to wheel. I live about 45 minutes south of Sand Lake. Just don't have anybody to go with.
