D44 OUT OF \'68 J3000 WHAT ARE THEY WORTH?

i am being offered a set or 44's from a '68 j3000, i am being asked to set the price. i have not even seen them but i think they are what i want. they are complete drum to drum & he thinks they are set up w/ 4.56:1. Is there a good disk break conversion for these? I thought i would cut them to scout shaft length. any thoughts pros & cons $?
thanks
greg

If they are original then the rear will have two piece axles 19 spline axles and small tubes. The front will be a closed knuckle 44 with small u-joints and 19 spline inner axles with 10 spline outers. Don't waste your time on them. If they have 4.56's and maybe Powerlocks if you're lucky then that is basically what they are worth except for someone who needs parts to keep their stock rig running. Good luck. Nickmil.

i agree.. these axles are not what you want.. the front is a terrible axle.. no good qualities to it.. the rear isnt much better and its offset enough to make your driveshaft vibrate and throw u-joints.
