    well you can make just about anything fit on a vehicle with enought money and know how. Is the truck free? The only thing on the truck that I personally would want would be the 205. You probably already have 10 bolts so the front axle is no good to you but alot of people rune 12 bolts and love them.

    Hope this helps

    well you have to figure out what you want out of it and see if its worth it. Does it have an engine?

    do you think a 12 bold and 205 are worth $500 to you? Personally I wouldnt get it because Im going 1 ton really soon and I already have a spare 205. But youolol have to make up ur own mind if its worth it. Wait till tommorrow and see what everyone else thinks. But if you think its worth it go ahead and get it.

    I would pass. It's probably an SM 420. 205 is worth something, and the axles are worthless.

    To me, I wouldn't use any of that stuff, but to some people the SM 420 and 205 are worth it.

    If it's a 69 then it s a D44 front. It is probably the small u-joint front end as well. Not very desirable except for the flat top knuckles.

    12 bolts are worth about $75.

    The trans mission and case....Ehhh. 69 was the first year for the 465. They still had Dana 20 transfer cases. Yeah it's all gear but it's not as strong as a 205.

    The price is fair if it is a 465 and 205 I'd offer him $300 and see if he bites. It's hard to sell a frame like that. He's probaly had it a long time.
