Default WTT My Well Loved 3.9 Torsen for your Equally loved 4.3

I know someone with an NB has gone FI and wants a better rear end. I was planning that route myself before I wussed out. Looking for someone ideally in reasonable driving distance from Chicago willing to do a trade of my great condition 3.9 I got from a wrecked Southern Car for their equally clean 4.3 Torsen.

I'll keep you in mind if nothing works out. I suppose we both lose out on shipping, but you would have a nice clean rust free LSD unlike my chances up here.

Yes keep me in mind. We do both lose out on shipping but it will be WIN-WIN for us. Thanks.

**** LSC224, how about you just ship me your car and I'll send you my boring 00 Base and you can turbo that. I have 15x9 6ul and FM Frame rails, none of the other go fast bits.

Sure, send me your 00 Base plus $7k, I'll send you my car. A lot of heartache went on this car.

I've got a 4.3 open (currently on the car) and a 4.10 Torsen to go with it. Want to swap? I'm in SoCal and will pay shipping.

I have a 4.3 in my car that is torn apart at the moment, the car not the diff. I'll trade for the cost of shipping on each of our parts. Shoot me a PM and maybe we can come to terms on something.
