    I found a matching set of Dana 44 and 14 bolt FF at a salvage yard for $600.00. Is that a fair price ????

    Being that most 14 bolts I see go for 150 - 200 a peice I dont think a D44 is worth near 400-450....
    I'd keep my 10 bolt up front long before I paid that much...

    If you lived in CA that would be a good deal the 14 bolt f/f goes for $500.00 and up.

    Not really true Brad. DuneRunner pulled a 14FF with 3.73 from the Newerk Pick N Pull for $134.

    I'm in South Dakota, that's the cheapest I've found. The set is mostly running around $750.00 to $900.00.

    Fair price would be what the average price paid in your area. Here in Oklahoma, I have been hard pressed to find a 14 bolt for less than $500, but there are deals out there.

    I think we are looking at it all wrong. Fair price is what someone is willing to pay. If you are willing to pay $600 then it must be fair or else you wouldn't buy it. Remember you can find axles cheaper across the country, but by the time they are shipped, were they still cheaper? Just a thought.

    There is a salvage north of Stillwater, going towards Perkins that has a couple of 14bff. Can't remember but last time I was there, they had one from a p/u and a couple from vans, don't know about the gear ratio and he quoted me $200 for the whole rear end.

    Maybe worth checkin out??

    Years ago, here in MI, I got a 14 bolt rear and a 10 bolt 8 lug front for $350.

    Depends on how bad you want them.

    I have sold a few 44/14 combos for an average $500.
