Axle guy needed

Hey all. i realize this is the wrong thread, but you are TN people so I figured you might be my best bet. I'm in Franklin and my D35 needs rebuilt. Anyone know a good axle guy that isn't going to cost me an arm and a leg? I got a quote of $600 on the rebuild. Ugh.

Might be cheaper to go to a pull a part and just buy another one for 75-100 bucks. Just make sure it has the same gear ratio, may even find a D44a (also came in ZJs from 95-98 and will have disc brakes). The 44a isn't a true D44 but it's stronger than the D35 and like stated above has disc brakes. Pretty sure there's a PAP in W.Nashville/Ashland City area.

I got that Jeep thing now it hurts when I pee.

are you good with tools? if so, it's not a hard job. what all is being rebuilt? i've done a couple of dana 35's and they're not that difficult, you just need to pay attention to what you're doing. although one d35 i rebuilt was from my wife's wj and you could only order the axle bearings from a dodge/jeep dealer. and they were expensive. i think that one cost me around $300 just for parts. my d35 out of my 98 wrangler only cost me $100 in parts.

Can anyone tell me how the flux capacitor is used to facilitate time travel???

Needs new carrier bearings and seals as well as axle bearings and seals. I'm pretty good with tools. I was looking into a D44a but couldn't find one I could afford. If my D35 didn't already have disc brakes, I would bite the bullet (I have an Orvis and it came with discs all around). I found a friend of a friend who used to build these things. he's going to help. Can get the rebuild kit for $100 from Quadratec. i'll keep you posted on the progress. Thanks guys!
