Do you suppose that the reason this board has been kinda dead lately is because we already know everything??????

Well....since you know everything <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> maybe you could give me an estimate on how much my frontend is worth.

I'm going to probably be running it for a while longer (unless a dana 60 front shows up at a price I can't refuse) BUT I am curious how much my current frontend would be worth.

It is a 74 cruiser frontend

Coarse spline pinion and open diff.

Toy pickup disc brakes w/ vented rotors off of an early 80s cruiser, and late 80s ifs toy calipers.

The steering arms have been drilled with a tapered drill bit to accomodate a dana 44 tie rod and ends (=very heavy duty).

Currently set up for SOA and SUA (perches above and below tubes)

The stock shock mounts are still there as well as new ones which sit low on the side of the axle tube so I can run longer shocks with my SOA.

$$????

I sold mine for $400 with Birfs and inner axles with the disc brakes. FYI.

Hey Tankota, I'd say that if you could get $400 for the axle, you'd be doing alright, but there's always sombody out there at the right time willing to pay a higher price!

Yeah it's true, that we just had a baby, so not much time in the evening to surf the boards.

Hey Nolen thanks for the rock wheels, I guess the OEM doesn't know what they have since they told me those wouldn't fit! The fit real nice and it was simple to do, bout 20 a side...gotta go get a beer, you know every effort deserves a reward!

Thanks for the input on $$$worth <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

That gets me half of a dana 60 front <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

They run about $800 around here. I don't really want to add in the cost of a front air locker, shortening, and 35 spline outers otherwise I'd probably never do the swap <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

I resemble that remark. I am a newbie to this board. I have been on the LCML, ORC, for awhile. I finally decided to join this board because you guys seem to be doing the cutting edge / inventive stuff. Also it seems a little more freewheeling <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> over here. I will try not to ask which tires will fit or which lift I should buy. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> Later,

Nolan, haven't talked to you in a while. Did you ever sell your 80? I just picked one up a few weeks ago and I love it!

As for your topic, I'm a newbie here I guess, and plan on milking a lot of you for info, and maybe add a bit of my own <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
