    i was going to buy a d 44 as part of a package deal with a locked d 60 rear. the 44 was supposed to be locked. i pulled the cover off and found two big problems. 1.) open carrier 2.) lots of water in with the oil(can you say chocolate milk?) so im keeping the 60.
    and since all he could give me were excuses and won't take much less for the 44.... hes taking it back.
    so now im out looking for a 44 w/4.10's and 8 lug . basically your classic 3/4 sub front axle. what do think one of these should go for? how bout w/ a locker?

    i bought a set of d44f/d60r from a '72 3/4t. for $350(no wait,$375 cuz he threw in two front d-shafts and the rear shaft)anyway,with 4.11's and a rear l/s.i was going to use them till somewone gave me a complete '76 3/4t. 14bff/d44f,4.10's gov-lock.i used them instead and still have the other axels in a storage shed at work just waiting for the right buyer(oops!i mean recycler;) )but just for the d44f,i wouldn't give more than $175.i might go an extra $100 for one locked.

    The $400 doesn't sound bad. I paid $450 for a D44/14ff. I had to drive 500 miles to get it so I really spent more. When you buy this setup you are paying mainly for the D44. Sure the 14ff is king, but it is also fairly common. They were used in 2wd truck and are almost un-breakable. I usually see the rear axle for $50-$150. The D44 breaks so there will be less of them out there and more people looking for a replacement D44.

    Is the water really that bad? I guess after a wheelin' session most of us could end up with water in the diff. If you drove it too far with the water that would be trouble.

    I paid $100 for a trashed D44 with 3.73's but I have also seen people ask $400 for a good one.
