oh my god that is a ******* steal! Sombody please pick this up. Not only do you get the better diff, but the bigger rear brakes, leaving only the fronts to finish the upgrade.

no mention of it being in good working order and no driveshaft but if upon calling the diff is in good condition spending 80 bucks on a driveshaft off ebay or maybe he has it sitting around would not be a bad idea.

I contacted him already... whether or not he will ship it is an issue. Is there any members in the TN area willing to pick it up and ship it to me?

I am local, and have seen the ad before, but I think it was $450 at the time. What concerns me is it looks like rust on the ends of the axles that insert in the diff. I hope all that stuff hasn't been sitting in a field. You will probably need new axles if they look as bad as I think they do. I just hope for your sake that the insides of that diff don't look the same.

Opening this back up and moving to BS....

The ends of the axles were a bit rusty, but nothing a wire bruch cant fix. the case, pinon housing, etc. looks great, insides look fine.

$400 shipped Brad you got a great deal.

It doesn't have ABS axles, does it? I "know somebody" who is looking to swap their non-ABS halfshafts for ABS shafts

if you need abs axles, just use your 1.6 joints.
