Yota Jim's sells complete SFA, hub to hub with thirds for $350.

I bought mine for $300 from a TTORA member.

I think the lowest I've seen complete ones go for is $250.

It might also depend on the year too. 84 and 85 housing are the most desired because the housings are better reinforced than the earlier years. So 79 to 83 housings might go for less.

Well, there are 2 sides: keep for parts or sell for better parts...

Sell: $200 ? range... what can you get for $200 to upgrade?

Keep: Stock parts are Band-Aids until you HAVE to get new parts, so... trail spares? Steering arms? Spindles?

I'd say sell it and buy Longfield goodies. Their wiper seals and titties and cheap; $40 a pair?

Sell it; you'll gain floor space and can upgrade your current axle. Plus I have other Dan's old axle for spare spare parts.

thanks for all the input. i need to get an exhaust done on the truck, and selling the axle would help that happen. i know as soon as i sell it, something will break, and if i keep it forever, i wont need anything off of it.


thats the way it goes for me
