whats your budget?

on the cheap find dana 60 knuckles and glue them to a 9in housing.

if you can afford the coin check out spidertrax as they have some of the best 9in stuff available for the offroad market.

this is a good thread to read too.

you traded for a hi9? what ever you traded was worth more than $300.

so no you cant do it for 300 or less.

the last set of custom 9 inch shafts i bought were from moser.
iirc they were near 700 shipped to my door.
8 lug would be more. gonna need brakes i would assume.
no way its under 300. should be a sweet axle.
im not saying give up or anything.
