Is this worth it?

Hey, just wanted to get an opinion on a deal I'm working on. A guy I know has a flowmaster exhaust, headers (can't remember the brand at the moment) and a rear lockrite, and he's asking $400 for all of it. Is this worth it?

Re: Is this worth it?

Sounds a little high to me, unless they're Borla headers or something. A brand new Lock-right ought to set you back about $250...used ones $100-150. So are the headers/flowmasters worth $250? What brand headers? ceramic coated? stainless? How long has he had 'em? Plain jane painted headers for a v-8 run about $150 new. I dunno what straight six headers run, I'd think close to the same.
Find out a little more info on the headers and how long this stuff has been on his jeep.

Re: Is this worth it?

As a person who wheels & deals for parts all the time, I have one thing to add...

Ask yourself if you really want this stuff, or are you considering this just because it is a "deal"? If you don't really need/want some of the stuff, it is a waste of your money. Been there, done that [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Save your money for things you REALLY want - other "deals" will come along later...

Re: Is this worth it?

well the locker I really want becuase I'm going to start doing some more serious trails, the headers and the exhaust are kinda superfluous, but I really want to pick up the power on my little 258. I just put on a new Weber carb, and I figure the headers and exhuast will compliment it nicely
