With all the toys you have you should be able to pay good money for it.

Shit, I did fix all the shit you broke on it.

Everything I own has a price tag, do you have the money?

For the most part, *IF* you have some good fabrication skills, then you are looking at:

Cost of your Dana 60, whatever that is

+

Cost of 9" housing with axle tubes the right size

+

Cost of 9" 3rd member with a 35 spline locker/spool

+

Axle shafts (maybe custom, maybe stock, whatever you want to use..)

+

basic refurbishment costs.


Some people get '$500' dana 60 fronts and run them like they found them. Some other people like to replace things like bearings, kingpins, brakes, etc.

where did you get your inner axle seals for the front? did you end up using front 60 seals?

If you follow the link in my post above, monkeyevil went into some pretty good detail in some of his threads. There might be some additional info in there worth hunting down.

I used seals-it universal seals. I had to silicon them in, but they have since not leaked.
