high pinion 9"

Hi

Looking at a Ford HP 9" rear...

I see that Currie and TrueHi9 make them...Curries about $400 cheaper than Hi9 but uses 8.8 gears instead of "reverse cut" 9" gears...few other differences too I think...I think Currie's about $1700 for a complete third member with a detroit...$2000 with an ARB.

I found this on ebay

Currie HP for ford 9" high pinion 8.8 and 35 spline 9":eBay Motors (item 160336479138 end time May-26-09 19:44:29 PDT)

Can someone help me calculate appriximate costs to stuff it myself? Ranging from finding stuff used (gears, detroit/arb) to going with all new?

Just trying to see if it's worth piecing it together myself (or should I say with lots of help with a person very experienced in building axles) or if I should bite the bullet and have a "pro" set it all up...

Thoughts/tips/advice?

Thanks!
Patrick

why yes, yes i am a moron
