Here it is:
Sweet!!--you going to convert to SRW hubs or leave the duallies?
what the heck is that
Well, I am goign to try and leave it DRW 'cause I would like to run Hummer rims. We'll see. It will be getting tore down to a bare housing and narrowed quite a bit since this isn't going into a K5.
It is a super freakin heavy boat anchor! Man, this thing weighs a ton. A friend and I put it in the back of my truck. I thought we both were going to strain the family jewels!!!!
Specs according to what is written on the axle tub in paint marker:
1985 GM 4.56 gears
For those of you who need'em, keep an eye out... The gears will be popping up on the For Sale board soon...
Welcome to Club 60!!!
I just got a new 60 also. It is under the new truck I just ordered.
I was just about to say, did you get that from Jerry? lol
being in the 60 club is cool, even if the truck doesnt even run.
how much did you get it for, if you dont mind me being nosy?
Nope, not from Jerry. I have been bugging him for years but he wont part with any in his collection..
Paid $500 for it.
$500?! Damn, I wish I could find a deal like that... Good job, man!
how come your not going to put your gold plated cover on it?
Whats it going under then?
Welcome to Ohio...despite our messed up weather and general boringness, we have dirt cheap 60's. Shhh, don't tell anyone though
Orange - Keep looking, one will pop up. I have been kind of looking for a while! Passed on a few I shouldn't have... Lost one that was around $225 and then another around $300... But I just didn't get in a hurry and waited. My buddy called me with this Saturday and I told him SOLD!
Dark - LOL.. Nah, I'll be making one with a DIY4x cover ring!
84 GMC - It's going under my 91 Toyota..
Here's a link to the build-up: LINK
Atho - Ya, there are good deals in this area if you keep an eye out.. Or have friends who are D60 whores!!
i take it you guy all have it hard up here im mass. no-one seals the 1 ton stuff cuz not to many folk like this stuff. i can get a set of rebuilt 1 tons 14bff and a d60 for like 400 with like 4:10's 4:56's whatever
yea i just picked up a drw 60 for 400$ out of an 87 crewcab that had like 80,000 original miles, when i asked the guy at the junk yard how much he wanted for it he was like "you know what that is right?" im thinking great hes gona say like 1500$, then he was like " thats a drw, ill take 500$" i was like "ill give you 400 cash right now". and now its in my back yard
Oh yeah...I like to gloat about how I got my SRW Dodge 60 for $150 from the local JY, that Jerry bought his DRW 60 from too (which I thought you had bought off him). We joke about how the guy there just doesn't know what they're worth. Heck, mine had already been pulled from the truck and everything! Just looks like its been under the Atlantic for about 20 yrs
