What am I doing wrong????

Got my old sterling rearend up on ebay? It had about 40k miles on her when i exchanged it out for a Dana 80 Dually rearend. She has an ARB air locker, installed air line and all with 4:56 gear ratio. When i pulled the rear cover off to take the picture it all looked great. Was told by the previous owner that he always ran synthetic gear oil. Looking to buy new front rims for the truck, and didn't think "450 by it now" was too much or even a reserve of 400. What am i doing wrong??????? economy? to high? the price of the ARB is more? Any and all suggestions good or bad! SEND UM

compared to the ones here in TN thats a good price, but keep in mind these are not a common problem so you need to find someone that needs one to sell and that may be hard. put on craigslist as well. good luck..

I think the 4.56 gears are hurting you. And, it's just my opinion, but I think eBay is a dying place to sell things...

Jason, was hoping that someone was more interested in the ARB? But your right never had any problems either Just converted to a dually. Zaairman do you have any suggestions for other sites?
