Re: descent price for 14bolt

according to the guys on the pirate BBS, you should find one with the exact gear ratio you need, already shaved, and the perfect width for $50-$200 in your local yards.

The yard I go to asks $500-$600 for a narrow cab and chassis style when they have them.

Re: descent price for 14bolt

I would say $200~~300 is a decent starting price depending on condition and going up from there with extras such a lockers and disc brakes. I once had a chance to get one for $100 and have seen others go for around $150. But this was a few years back before going 1 ton was the hip thing to do. now, everyone is looking for these and the prices are going up.

Re: descent price for 14bolt

Ozark, you are WAY off. For THAT price range, you also get a case of microbrew beer, a stripper for the day, and somebody comes to your place to install it complete with a 4 link coil-over suspension. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: descent price for 14bolt

hehe

seriously if I ever need more in teh rear thatll probabl be where I look.

ID say any junkyard rear should be $100-$200 stock and complete.

I know ive bought several HDamc20s, rear dana 44s, and front dana 44s in that range.

Re: descent price for 14bolt

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] My favorite pickup/light truck yard in Sonora CA has oodles of them in the $200 price range. Probably the biggest factor in a junk yard 14-bolt is the DRUMS. One drum is worth as much to the yard as the whole axle is, so if you are buying with the idea of converting to disc brakes, you can get a REALLY good price by taking one without the brake drums.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Er.......not to put too fine a point on it[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gif[/img] but is the title of this post about the "descent" or downward sloping of the 14-bolt price curve?[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] As in: "A decent price can be arrived at by following the descent of the 14-bolt price curve."[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
