Anyone paid to have the D60 swap?

I know a lot of guys have done the Dana 60 swap themselves, has anyone paid to have it done? If so, what did the bill look like. I am confident I can get a few friends together and do it, but thought I would see how much to have it done. Local shop wants $4200

I was blown away by the price. That included a rebuilt axle. I have since found a D60 for $400 and will rebuild it myself. Then have the local suspension shop bolt it up for me. They quoted me $400-$500 as long as I provide the parts.

I would have it done in 4 hours for $250, no way I would pay someone to do something as simple as that, just take springs out, unbolt it from the center let it hit the floor and drag it out, then slide new one under springs on already, lift it up in place and start bolting it in, real simple

WOW...4200 bucks, were they gonna install a new ring and pinion with a new carrier and new bearings, seals, joints, hubs ect.... and that still seems outrageous.

When u do the d-60 swap remove your f250 pitman arm and install the f350 arm do not throw away the old one as u can no longer get the 250 style ones and someone may need it one day!

after youtube and threadsurfing, I am going to do it myself. I'm sure I'll be fine and if not, I'll shoot off questions.

It's really not that hard. I did mine by myself working on it a few hours a day along with a full rebuild of the axle.

BR'sCrwwCab, what U tube video made you think you could do it yourself? Could you link it up please? I would like to see it. I still have a F-250 with the original front axle.

Here is a quick youtube:

My personal favorite is a How To Thread by mjonesjr which is very complete
How-To: Dana 60 Swap
