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.

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.

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!
