Checked out a new yard today, found a few things !

I found a new (to me) yard in the area that lets you look and pull yourself. Me and my brother checked things out and it looks like a gold mine! I found 3 good GM 14 bolt dually rears out of wrecker trucks that according to Pyro (the Hawaiian guy) should be close to the right width at around 62", is that right? We also saw about 10+ D60s, some full width some narrower. Also found a D60 front axle with a driver side drop and flat top knuckles but no shafts in it. It was in a axle pile. Anybody knows what this could be out of? I also found a D44 front out of a 70s Ford 250 Ranger Lariat with a D60 rear and a T18 trannie. I also found a separate T18/NP205 (I think) combo out of another Ford 250. They wanted $400 for the D44 and the same for the T18 alone. I'm thinking about the T18 if I could get it down some. What would it take to drop it between my 4.0L and the NP231 ? What do you think about the prices?

I thought my area was expensive ($200 for tranny or axle, u-pull) so $400 sounds VERY expensive to me.

You say tomato, I say fawk you.

Too high for around here. BIG TIME.
We are pretty cheap for the area, but thats higher than what the expensive yards charge.
For example.......we charge(a round about)
60 rear- 50-250
14bolt rear- 100-250
70 rear- 250 usually
44 front 100-250
60 front 200-250
These are close enough for you to see the differences. Gears and posi change the pricing as does years. None of these would be real late model ones in the 90's.
Also, WE pull all the parts, so you'd have to bust your knuckles doing something else.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Turn the wheels in the head before the gears in the jaw

Re: Checked out a new yard today, found a few things !

I picked up my T18/205 for $200, but that was from a 4wd shop that had it laying around from a parts truck they bought. Most of the junk yards around here get 150-200 for a manual trans and the prices for transfer cases vary depending on what it came from. I picked up a 9" to narrow for my camaro a few years back for $80, while the 8.8 in the jeep cost $250(full size ford 9"s are a dime a dozen and dont come in most newer cars on the road while the 8.8 fits the explorer and there are millions still on the road).

As for the T18 swap, You'll need an adapter(quite a few dollars from AA) an different bellhousing(also expensive AA part) and probably need to make a new crossmember/trans mount/skidplate. Is it worth it? HELL YEAH! The shifting is a little sloppy, 1st gears not synchronized and you rev higher on the highway but first gear is a blast.

5.0s and 4 speed = lots of broken parts!!!
