Holy pigiron ! I just wrestled my dodge disconnect 60 into the garage, whew, this thing is going on a diet. Anyway, I called dynatrac to get a price on thier 35sp conversion kit, I'm not planning on useing it ,I plan on picking my own parts and putting it together myself, but I thought, maybe it won't be that much... $3200 !!! I about dropped the phone, I'm lmao, I can spend alot of time in front of a mill and roaming junkyards for that kinda cash...sheesh ! thanks yuppies (you boneheads)... goodgodyall !

BTW they wanted $389 for the front inners that moser sells for $275.

Just for the conversion kit? Can you imagine how much a whole axle costs? How 'bout a high pinion, high clearance D60 w/ 4.56 gears, 35 spline axles, ARB, and disk brakes...I shudder to even ask.

I used to want to build a dream vehicle with one of their D60's, but now I am like you. I think that I could roam the junkyards and find what I need. For what they are asking for F & R, I could buy a M715.

Have you called Mosier, even though they are higher. Many times I have found that they are cheaper than most, esp. for someone who does their own work.

What parts do you need? I might be able to help

Also what year dodge axle? Mine came from a 92 Dodge 1Ton and its not got that vacuum connect crap thank god.

Keep checking Ebay. Lots of misc D60 parts show up there.

It's A disconnect housing. What I'm doing is replacing the tubes w/ 44 tubes useing the 60 ends with moser 35sp inners.
What I really need is ford knuckles and all then I can drill them out to 35 sp size and use ford lockouts..I don't know if the ford knuckles will fit the dodge sub-knuckles... I need a New ford axle that hit a tree dead center. : ) Yea, I 'll check eBAy THX...

I had a deal going with a built small block Chevy, then I called Dynatrac, I told the guy what I had and he gave me a price on a set of Dana 60's at $8900.00. Now I realize thats alot of rearend but, jeez are you nuts? This clown wouldn't send me a catalog, but he did call me 4-5 times to see if I was ready to buy.

I guess Jeepchic needs to find a third job for this kind of money.

lets get this very straight.... the reverse cut 60 has what??? an inch and a half of extra clearance???
we'll put these things into perspective...
i bought both axles from a military truck... they have 4.56 gears and the 14 bolt has the original detroit locker. sure i had to pull them, but i paid..$675 for the front d-60 and the rear 14 bolt complete. i paid $490 for a detroit and install kit for the front d-60. the brakes were fine all around, but i turned the rusty rotors and replaced the old wheel bearings. i also put new calipers on($18 each)..the not-so-grand total??? just under $1200.
some of you will remember the scout i did a SOA to recently... well.. i was out looking for flat to knuckles for some nice steering, and stumbled across another set of 1 ton chevy axles...d-60 front, 14 bolt rear, detroits and new 4.56 gears...for $1200... sooooo... that scout has the same axles as me now..we shouls have trail pics next weekend.

I think the reverse cut has the same ground clearance (very close to the same) but the driveshaft angle is helped by a couple inches (for those with that problem).
Elusive...That was a good deal, what is your spline count/shaft size ? I gave $350 for the dodge I'll need $300 for the inner shafts and then some kind of soft locker, because I have no lockouts...I like the newer style 60s with the ball joints because I'm making a lightweight rig, I think I can save some weight and still kick some booty with this set-up.

Prices at Dynatac are nuts, I talked with them about a pair of high clearnace full floating axles 5.13 gears and clearanced housing and by the time he was done adding it was somewhere it the $10k range! and like others they have called by several times wanting to know when I want to get some axles...

I have a late 90's RC Ford 60 that Im converting to the rear. It's just a housing but I do have the inner knuckles ('C') if you are interested.

Why is everyone stuck on Dynatrac? There are other smaller companies that do fine work and charge less. There's Woody's 4x4 in Vancouver, Wa., R&P 4 WD Parts Inc. in Oregon City, OR. I'm sure there are other places out there too. Keep in mind just the pumpkin from Tera Mfg. for a 60 high pinion, high clearance is $1100. Unfortunately beef costs money. Nickmil.
