Re: What to pay for RC D60 front?
I think if it is in good shape, it is an OK price. The regular Chevy 60 complete around here go for about $1000. I have seen a nice HP Ford complete with new brakes go for $1600.
I think you should evaulate the cost of swapping the drop of a Ford to shorting a Chevy. Or even changing your t-case. There is a lot of money and expence to re-tube. I don't think the advantages of the HP in front will justify the expence. I'm thinking of trying to build a 44/60 hybread. Using a Ford 44 HP, and 60 tubes and axles. This should keep the weight down, have food ground clearance, and the strength of tht 60 u-joints. If I didn't go this route, I think I would chop a Chevy 60. Jaffers project looks real nice!
