You're lucky he got ahold of you. I told him to just leave it behind Meijer and leave you a voicemail saying to come get it before someone else(me) did. I don't know what I would do with a third Dana 60 but it seemed like a good idea at the time:tonka:

Well I could go through and price out each item, but I get too depressed. Even with all the great deals I got building it (the best one from Cornfed on the CTM's ) It's close to the $3k mark, but I also have 2 sets of spare axles, an extra set of Warn premium hubs and a bit of labor time.

I did buy that kit from Ballistic, because after pricing out what I could get everything individually for it was close to that total and easier to order from one place.

If you can hold out for another year or so, I'll sell you this axle.

you better keep that 60 hidden, it may just grow a set of legs and walk to the west side.....

I found an old clip from Windrock when I was still pimping a Dana 30 and 37"s.
Enjoy.
