What do you think?

I found this add on CL. dana 60 front axle $900 obo
I just e-mailed this guy. I'm requesting pics and some info like witch bracket has been removed and what is include in his 1 ton package deal. I don't understand the gear raito, I thought Ford used 3.55 or 4.10? This guy is about 2.5 to 3 hours away, so I want to be sure this isn't some hack trying to make a buck off some project he screwed up. I have heard that the King pin D60 is more favorable. Some insight from some of you who have done this conversion would help. My wife would be PO'd if this turned into a huge project with a over inflated buget.
Thanks, Jesse

He probably cut the leaf spring pad of with intents of doing a 4 link. 3.55 and 3.54 is the same deal. Yes the king pin D60 is the stronger setup. That price is fair as long as he didn't damage the tube getting the brackets off.

It turns out that this guy bought the D60 for a jeep project and changed his mind along the way. There is no sway bar, springs, steering linkage tie rods and a spring perch needs to be installed/ welded on the passenger side. He hasn't included pics. I was hopeing that I could find a r&r at a good price. Is the king pin worth the trouble or should I hold out? I don't plan on wheeling this truck, I plan on hauling my Jeep to the trail and useing it for household jobs. Keep in mind money vrs wife issue. 1K + more money would make her unhappy and I wouldn't be without for awhile. My current supension is in some need of some attention and I would hate to polish a terd. Your opinion matters,
Thanks Jesse
