    Tell me if this ain\'t B.S.!!!

    I've been calling around town looking for 1ton axles and I must of called about 40 salvage yards. I cant seem to find any d60 fronts. After about the 20th person I talked to, this guy tells me that a local guy buys every d60 he gets within a day of getting it. So I start asking the rest of the people I talk to about this after they tell me they dont have any 60's and they tell me the same thing. Is that not a crock-o-crap or what. I also was finding the same problem on the 14bolts, but occasionally I would find one of them for $800 or so. ......Still cant find a D60 to save my life though..

    I don't want to give up any of these until my rig is complete. He did have 3 sitting there that didnt have the drums on them. I didn't look at them to hard to notice there condition, he wanted $125 for them as well. I'm going back there tomorrow to haggle on an s10 body that I want. If you want one of them I dont mind picking one up and shipping to you for no extra cost. I'll take another look at them 2morrow and see what kinda condition their in.

    Re: Tell me if this ain\'t B.S.!!!

    Yer right, it's B.S. I live in Ohio, and I called at least 15 junkyards in the tri-state area, and a couple of them also stated that someone buys them up as soon as they come in. I believe that somehow those big aftermarket axle companies (Boyce, Dynatrac, Currie, etc) have an early (computerized?) lead on these things and buy them up before the little guy (me and you) have a chance. That K30 guy is right, you have to look in farmers back yards, industrial yards that use heavy equipment, and someone else said ya gotta keep searching and bartering. I got lucky, I found one in a junkyard one state away, paid 450 for it and had it shipped to my door for 100. It appears to be in ready to roll condition, but I plan on replacing joints, seals, and bearings as required before I install it under my truck.

    <font color=blue>I found a whole 1 ton drivetrain from an 83 GMC K30 behind a barn. The guy sold everything for $400, I got the trans and the rear and my dad has the front and t-case. Find some hillbilly that doesnt know what he has

    Re: Tell me if this ain\'t B.S.!!!

    Yep Sam of Sams Offroad. Rumor is it that he found abut RC 60 Fronts and swiped em for about $75 apeice. Then wouldn't sell one back to the guy that showed him where they were for les than $2k!!

    If we've got two guys doing it, then we are screwed.

    I wouldn't normally take that stuff to heart, but I don't give a [censored] about Sam Patton or his crew. After one of his counter dicks called my wife a liar, I've got no use for em.

    Re: Tell me if this ain\'t B.S.!!!

    how do you know what a dana 60 looks like? I know where a truck is that has a 14 bolt rearend. I just dont know what it is. its in a 70 c-20. I just know it looks heavy as hell. I could go check it out if someone wants. It might take a day or so.
