I know EXACTLY what you mean. It'll be worth it. So, this is MIT we're talking about right? Mind sharing the estimate?

Yes, it is MIT. I don't have the quote in right in front of me (I'm at work), but I remember the general numbers. The fully assembled 8.8" with perches welded, C-clip elimination, e-brake cables, Detroit locker, 4.56:1 gears and setup, U-Joint yoke adapter, etc. is $2400. The same setup in a D60 is $2600. If I have them do the install, add $330 in labor and incidental parts (nuts, bolts, etc).

To regear my front D30, it is $220 setup/labor, $150 for the ring & pinion, $150 for the carrier (I have 3.07's right now), and $160 for bearings/shims/etc.

Looking at it this way, $3300 isn't really too bad. It's just a matter of liquidating enough money to pay for it...

Makes the decision pretty easy huh? My rear was around $4K. But it's a full floater. Something you might want to consider.

I originally ordered a semi floating rear. While talking about spares with some buddies we pretty much agreed, more than likely I wouldn't need spare shafts for a Dana 60. But, we also agreed, anything can break. Ya never know. If I was running a flanged axle I would have to carry a spare on the slight chance I somehow broke it. With a full-floater I don't have to worry about carrying spare shafts I probably will never need. Just something else to think about while you're pondering this decision.

Mmmmm..... Full-floating axles....
</Homer>

I think I'll ask about that when I go back down there. If it doesn't add significantly to the package price, I'll definitely go for it.

I just realized you're in Oceanside. I have a very good friend (Matt) I wheel with who lives in Oceanside. He's working on his and another buddy's Jeep right now on a buildup. Dual 60s under Brett's (the buddy) and a 60 front and 14bolt rear under his. Along with tranny and tcase swaps. Do you by chance know where Fiesta Island in San Diego is? How about we meet up for lunch some time? I'll try to make it a time when I know Matt will show.

Yeah, that'd be great! Fiesta Island is a bit south for a weekday lunch (I work in Carlsbad), but not impossible - and certainly OK on the weekends. See what their availablilty looks like, and let's set something up!

Well, a half-day would be nice, but I don't know if I can swing it. At this point, I'm going to have to say that it'd be a bungee lunch for me. Which shouldn't be too bad, since until I get a new axle, I'll be driving my Camaro. It doesn't take very long at all to get to/from Fiesta Island with that car. LOL!
