If your selling your axles, how many miles are on them? I might be interested in them.

All of the Super Duties up to 05 use a dana 50 un less it is a F350 with dual rear wheels then it will have a Dana 60. The 05 and newer with the coil overs all used the dana 60.

I have 100K on them. Good shape, I will let you know. Most likely somewhere in the neighborhood of $700-800 for both.

If that is for a superduty then thats a great price? Everything I have seen for the superduty the gears are about $700 for front and rear, and the install kit are $400 for both axles. I know when I did my 8.8 and D30 it cost me $500 for everything.

The reason I asked about your axles was, I picked up a "99" F-350, 4x4, crew cab Diesel, on the cheap, it needs a lot of work. In going over this thing I found a real sloppy rear gear set that looks like it was replaced not to long ago, but not set up correctly. I was going to swap out the axle, but now I think I will rebuild my axle, good time to put in a locker. I was just hoping to get this on the road quicker.

I will be getting my gears and bearings if needed from Reider. I have purchased from them many times. They take care of their customers. I had an almost bad experience with them, one of the sales guys was going to stiff me on a locker deal, I was just starting to spool up, when another guy, saw what was going on ( must have been an owner or manager), he steps in, takes over real smooth, pulls a locker from a shipment that was going out to Europe, and sets me up with everything I needed. Then he sets me up with ball caps, shirts, and a few calendars. I told him thanks, and I also told him how he almost lost a customer, and that I was very happy he took care of me.

I am not his biggest customer, but I have spent more than a few thousand with them. I thought I was going to have to go back to Randy's ring and pinion for my supplies. I was going to tell them to cancel a 2K+ cash deal. I know its not huge, but it would of made me feel good to rub his face in it. LOL.
Good luck in finding the axles your looking for.
If you have time, check out the pm I sent you.
Thanks Dennis
