As for the center.
225-325 center section (Strange N2206 or N1906)
80-100 pinion support
125-225 spool (Yukon or Auburn)
100 install kit
$655 - $875 for the center. If you run the spool made for the 3.06 housings you can save another 225-325.
1500 for shafts... it's a ball park figure... branik motorsports sells machined moser or yukons for about 900 that gets you the 50 degrees of steering that the knuckles are capable of. add in some ujoints that will hold up and you have 1300-1500 for shafts. now if you want to be billy bad ass you can spend 3500 for CTM inners that are ready to drop in and run.
you cant run normal unmachined shafts in the knuckles unless you put on steering stops and also dont mind breaking a shaft in case you over steer or the knuckles flex. if you are going to pinch pennies, a $7000 front axle is not the place.
and for the center, if you really want you can piece together parts and assemble it yourself... either way you arent getting something strong and reliable for less than 800.... you can have 4 wheel parts build you one that you pull out of the package and drop in for $1000 so you might as well do that to save you the hassles of piecing the right things together and all of the individual shipping costs taht will get added up also.
