    okay folks tell me where you got your dana 60 from cause i know i'm not the only one looking from a resonable D60 (aren't we all).
    <br>this is what i've found
    <br>Boyce---starts at $2,500
    <br>dynatrac--- starts at $4,295[image]/forums/images/icons/shocked.gif[/image](made out of gold)

    <br>USA6x6--- $1,300 sold out (sh!t)(might not get any more)
    <br>gsaauction.gov---- $500 for whole K30(yeh like i'm gonna find a deal like that)

    I broke a truetrac in a dana44hd that I purchased from Boyce along with a 14boltff w/detroit. They gave me 500 bucks towards anything they carry. I opted for a Dana 60 open diff. It came all pretty and on a pallette. The only thing I would have done differently is not purchased superwinch hubs. One of the caps broke on the driver's side hub. I had a shop install an ARB in the d60 and I'm super happy. The money was worth it because it is hard to find a 60 that is in good cond. for decent money.

    What do you consider a good deal? I bought mine from Roger and couldn't be happier, everything except the paint was in excellent condition.

    I find them here and there. Most of them are farmers who have broken down their trucks. Some I have found just laying in the back of some businesses, like oil well services, etc.

    Yeah, $500 for a complete K30 from GSA Auctions was sure a deal that I could not pass!! Just waiting for the damn truck to get here though. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    What did you pay? To me a good deal is one that is ready to bolt and roll for under a grand. An even better deal is when the axle ferry puts one under my pillow at nite while I'm asleep, but I think thats just wishful think'n./forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Just to let you know there is a mid 80's K30 chassis on ebay right now. D60 front w/4.56 and trac lock and a 14FF w/4.56 and a detroit. There is currently two bidders on it right now and last I checked it was at $1200.

    $1000 for an open used just to set things straight./forums/images/icons/smile.gif Kinda funny but every post my name and Dana60 are mentioned in I wind up getting PM's. Another funny thing is I did not buy mine from Roger but I did buy my 14ff from him./forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Bought mine from a salvage yard in Tacoma, $600 for 4.56 geared D60 w/o hubs and a 14BFF with Detroit locker. Spent another $200 on Warn hubs and brake pads. 84 military 1 1/4ton truck they came out of had 41k on it. That was 6 years ago.

    sorry wayne again DOH. thanks for the info all i hope this helps me and everyone else who is insearch of resonable D60. when i say resonable i mean $1000-$1300 used but of course i'm flexable. i've been looking into beefing up my D44 and come up with this.
    cromo shafts-$500-$600
    CTM's-$300
    still have to regear-$300-$400 for parts.
    =$1100-$1300 and i still gotta D44
    so a used 60 sounds better and better.

    CTM's in a D44 would be the GM equivilent to a Furd Exploder or Heep whY Junk (YJ), always broken down/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    well CTM's and cromo are certainly better than stock. but is it worth $800? i'm not convinced it is. the folks over at pirate seem to think so but then again there rigs don't weight 6000lbs.

    I got my D60, and 14FF for $400, and the guy pulled them for me! The K30 was stripped down and rusting out in his grove when I found it. Farmers have all the cool junk laying around!
