Good price for used 14-bolt rear & D60 front???

I'm doing my first junkyard axle swap (we just got a '49 Willy's P/U truck and it's got the weak Timken rear axle in it) so that we can put bigger tires (37's) under one of our project vehicles and I've found a bunch of complete 14-bolt rears locally.



They are all drum brake (but so is the Willy's now), and they are all 8-lug. . .various gear ratios.



The one yard said $450 + tax for a complete 14-bolt rear axle. . .is that a decent deal? If not, what would be a godd deal on a used, stock 14-bolt rear be?

Same question for a D60 front. . .I haven't found one yet, but I'd like to know ahead of time.



Thanks!

OK. . .I was thinking somewhere around $200 for the 14-bolt. . .if you're used to seeing $150, there is no way I'm gonna pay $450!

Thanks!

I guess I would really have to look at what is in the 14/60.

When I got mine I knew that I'd be replacing all the guts in it so it didn't matter what it came with. I knew that I would be setting up my own gear selection, wanted alloy axles, lockers, etc. So anything already in it would get scrapped.

As such, all you'd really need is just the housing. A mechanic friend gave me the 14 bolt and I found the D60 on Craigslist for $200. I tore everything out and only kept the housing.

That being said, what is your ultimate goal with it? Might wanna use that as a guide for where to begin. i.e. its just going into a farm truck that'll never change or you'll be creating a custom rock buggy that'll need all the bells and whistles. In the first case you'll want something nearly complete so expect to pay more. In the second, you won't care about the innards because they'll all get replaced anyhow.

you can find 14 bolts for 100 and a little less sometimes.

It's gonna be more of a show truck. . .won't ever see rock crawling. . .it's a '49 with the original body and no rust. . .doesn't have the original drivetrain but we wanna do it up WWII style and it will see some mild off-road use but will never see anything hard core or be abused. . .we have other vehicles for that kinda stuff. ..

. . .I was hoping to get complete axles that I could just swap in and then set-up the gears the way I want them later. . .

Your gears have to be set up before you drive it. They must be the same front and rear.
If this is primarily going to be a show truck then why not just get a set of wagoneer axles? 37's would be fine on dana 44's on a show truck and your wheels won't stick out so far.
Dana 60 and 14 bolt are going to be much wider than what you have now, and whatever you get will most likely need new spring mounts and shock mounts welded on.
Swapping axles is a big project.

THANKS FOR FAST REPLY. 49 willys pickup!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Joel

I'm not to good on computer as you can see. Sorry! I'm looking for pictures
of Willys like mine so I can see what others have done and how they have done the changes.My truck was a Air Force truck and the two other guys that owned her were very good to her,no extra holes anywhere.Air Force markings inside and out,and blue-gray paint.I'm not going to restore her stock
[I just bought a new crate 350 and a 400 tranny] but I hope to use all the stock gauges to keep her original as I can inside.I still have the Timken rear end and stock front.I'm hoping to make this a winter project[I get about 5 to 6 foot of snow a year] so I can have something to do after work.Any pictures
would be very helpful,frame off pictures :,350/400's,d44-d60's,wiring PRICELESS.If I can figure out how to post pictures I will.Thanks to everyone for any help

Perri. . .I can show you some of that, but we're a ways off from doing a frame-off. . .

. . .the 350/350 swap was done by the previous owner, but I can show you what's been done already. . .the engine is wired, but no gauges. . .I"m gonna do that, but it doesn't have the original gauges either. . .
