    There\'s a D60 and 14 bolt in my carport...

    My daughter and I just got home from Tacoma WA. We brought home a D60 front and another 14 bolt rear both with 4.56's and a detroit in the rear. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif /forums/images/icons/cool.gif /forums/images/icons/cool.gif /forums/images/icons/cool.gif /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    The only miserable part was getting them out of the pick-up without a hoist of any sort... /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif I got home too late to rent an engine hoist. /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    I'm really stoked!!! Now i just have to clean up the front, move the perches and shock mounts on the rear and chuck em under the truck. The rear has brand new drum brakes, new backing plates and cables etc and the guy even cleaned it up and gave it a coat of black /forums/images/icons/cool.gif The front is a little dirty but had less than 40,000 miles on it, and it came complete with hubs and spring plates.

    Now the hunt is on for a set of 39.5's... /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    I'm right there with you /forums/images/icons/grin.gif Just put the Detroit in my Dana 60 last weekend. Still gotta put both of them under the K5. They are now in the shed on a pair of floats I made out of some scrap steel and castors. Got the front end torn down to put crossover steering on and some new brake shields.

    God it feels good to have the 1 ton stuff at the house.

    About time you got some 1 ton stuff!! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Right now I'm looking at buying an '80 K20 Suburban for parts. It runs and I'm thinking of putting the motor into the '82 I got from Shawn. Might even drive it for a while.

    If it gets to the point where I'm gonna sell this truck, I may pull the D60 out and keep it. Just slap a 10 bolt back under it and "bye bye". /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    <font color="green"> Excellent, Rene! I feel your pain on moving those beasts around with no hoist, I had to do the same thing when I unloaded my 1 tons at the house. The guy I bought them from forklifted them into the truck but unloading them was a real bitch. So are you going to try out the Detroit now instead of the welded rear? It would be interesting to have a perspective from someone that has had both on the same vehicle. </font color>

    Yeah it sure does...no dough for crossover stuff yet. Time to start saving I guess.

    Evan, I am going with the Detroit and I'll let you know my honest impressions of both./forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Mike, my ability to wait is inversely proportionate to the bank balance...Donimator hooked me up with the deal and I went for it before my wife could talk me out of it/forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Now I have to hunt for a good deal on 39.5's.../forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Re: There\'s a D60 and 14 bolt in my carport...

    Well Steve...I had to get rear ended by a drunk for this to happen/forums/images/icons/shocked.gif So I'm not so sure about the luck part...I didn't get near enough to compensate for the damage to my truck or the time I missed at work due to the injury, but I made sure the minimum I was gonna settle for would allow me to go one ton and pick up some 39.5's.

    I find myself just going out and looking at the diff's every once in awhile... /forums/images/icons/blush.gif /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif
