I need to find a used Dana 30 locker

I'm looking for a used Dana 30 locker 3.73 and up (running 5.38's) I am going to be pitching the 30 in favor of a 44 in a few months, so I would rather not have to buy new. Anyone got something they are willing to sell, trade, or arm wrestle for? I would prefer a Detroit, but I'm open to anything including lunchbox lockers, I need to get this front end locked until I can finish my new axles. Willing to pay fairly, just don't want to buy new if I don't have to.

I am moving up the ladder in the difficulty of trails I am driving, and three legging just isn't cutting it anymore. I work the line(s) and can usually do them with the open front, but I'm getting tired of going on the strap or the hook over the tough ones. I wheel with some pretty hard core guys and everyone agrees that not having a front locker is what is holding me back.

If you are going to upgrade anyway why not just weld up the dif on the 30? I have been running mine welded for about 2 years with no problems. Hicks 4X4 charged me like $20 to weld the spiders (they said you have to use nickel rod).
