Dana 60 price?

Hey Fellas, got a question on the dana 60 swap. I have went to all the local junkyards and they neither have the solid axle or sell them as soon as they come in and have a waiting list. Anyways I got my name on the list and am now waiting but the gentleman told me that he sells them for $1200 all day long. So my question is what is everyone paying for theirs? Would it be more cost efficient to build the I beam up? I'm looking for about 4" of lift and 35's. And don't really want to mess with a 06+ axle swap. Thanks for all help!

Don't waste your money on the TTB. $1200 isn't too horrible, generally if you find one for $800-1000 your doing good.

I bought a whole truck with a plow for 1200. If you have the room thats the way to go since youll have all the parts needed for the swap right there. Also you can part out the rest of the truck and scrap it when your done to put some money back in your pocket.

i wouldn't pay more than 600. I have bought my last 2 for 500 a piece. one came with a match rear. found one in the local JY, the other on CL. you need to be willing to drive and need to have cash in hand they will go quick.

Make sure you get the driver's side bottom U bolt bracket, the track bar and the frame mounted track bar bracket, steering pitman arm, definately the front springs (don't think about re-using the D50 springs) and if you can score it, the front drive shaft and also the front yoke from the transfer case. If the tie rod ends of the steering linkage and drag link are in good shape it will save you about $300 for new. Even if they are not usable, the two adjustable sleeves and bolts are about $20 each, and they don't wear out.

If I got all of that, and did not have to replace the ball joints, inner axle seals or any bearings, from what I've seen others pay, the $1,200 might seem fair.

I got my front and rear axles, wheel to wheel compete for $700. But I watched Craigslist for almost a year and had to pounce quick. But I'll have spent that much on going through mine almost completely.

It goes by region. Here in the salt belt the trucks rot out FAST and all that is left is the drive train, so that drives the price down.I buy 4wd F350s all the time for under 1500, but they are ROTTEN

In a rust free area the axle bring a pretty penny because the truck LAST and you would be destroying a GOOD TRUCK taking the axle from it

Wow, thanks for the input guys! I've been shopping for one for about 6 months now and haven't seen anything on craigslist and finally got to the junk yard yesterday to find that out. The $1200 is just the axle, nothing else. I thought it seemed high as you can buy a beat truck for $2000. I was thinking the $600 price range was more reasonable, here in Wyoming craigslist sucks and montana isn't much better haha. But I guess I will keep looking because $1200 for just the axle is asinine.
