    Re: what\'s the going rate for a used sm465/205 combo?

    From an individual seller, about $500 for the combo, with the shifters, linkages, etc.

    A junk yard will ask more than that. Probably in the range of $1000 for all the above. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    The 3/4 ton axles from that truck can fetch $500 for the pair, again from an individual, easily.

    A junk yard will try to rape a buyer for $1000 for the pair, if that. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    there is no way I would pay that for a used tranny/tc combo
    I paid $300 cdn for the last one I bought and thought I was a fool to pay that much

    [/ QUOTE ]

    what linkages are you refering to? shifters should come with as should the bell

    Re: what\'s the going rate for a used sm465/205 combo?

    yeah, i payed 500 bones a few years back for the 3/4 ton axles i had under the the Blue Beast. never again. i've baught complete 3/4 ton junkers for 500 bucks. plus everyone is dana 60 hungry so 3/4 ton stuff has really dropped in price. the 465s still seem to be popular though. parts rigs are the way to go. sell what you don't need and recoup most or all of the original perchase and keep what you need. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    I don't care what you pay for any combo.

    If you think $300 cdn is too much, why should the $25 CK5 membership fee be too much for you? /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/confused.gif /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Cool beans on the skid plate. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    What I mean by my above statements of the prices for the tranny/t-case and the front and rear axles are prices that what I have seen them go for, on average, on this site.

    I have read here and seen elsewhere that the junk yard prices are way higher than what others sell and ask for of them on this site.

    Junk yards are outrageous in some cases. I have heard of some jy's selling a 14FF in the upward prices of $700 or more. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif These rears can be had for as low as $75, if not cheaper, in just about your local areas. Just have to look for them.

    If you ask a jy for a 465 or 205 price, those will be in the ranges of $300 or more, for each.

    I've seen the same in my area too. kinda pisses a guy off because junkyards deal in so much more volume you'd think they'd have the best prices.

    parts rigs are where its at. you get so much more then just the specific parts you're after. like maybe even a skid plate! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Re: what\'s the going rate for a used sm465/205 combo?

    LMAO!! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif Yep, the value of a skid plate!! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    What pisses me off is that I heard what a junk yard "bought" a K30 for from a guy who was just tired of fixing it all the time. They paid under $500 for it. And then turned around by selling/parting it out for outrageous prices. /forums/images/icons/mad.gif

    They wanted $1200 for the D60 alone. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
    They wanted $750 for the 14FF. /forums/images/icons/mad.gif
    The 205 t-case was hooked up to a worn out 400 that needed a rebuild, and they were still asking $900 for the pair. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif
    The motor was a 454, which still ran but was getting weak, and they wanted $600 for that. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    Do the math on that and tell me who is/was/are/will be getting raped!!! The buyer or the seller whom sold the truck to the junk yard. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif BOTH, the buyer and seller are getting raped big time!! /forums/images/icons/mad.gif
