A new rear end

Yesterday, a guy at local 4WD shop offered to sell me his axels (complete) for $800. One is a D30 the other a D44, I am going to offer to buy the 44 alone but don't know what a fair price for it is. He's only got 37k on the odo and the diff is an LS. Any help would be appreciated.

A Stock TJ D44 can go anywhere from $900-1500 depending on how its set up. If its still completely stock, I'd offer him 650-700 and see if he takes. If he does, you just got a major score!

Buy both for $800, sell the D30 for $400 and now you've got a major score!

I'd say to buy both of them and then rape the D30 of it's shafts. Carry them around as spares and sell the housing locally on Craigslist or something for 150 or so. I did the same thing. Needed a locker for my 30. Bought an entire axle with a locker for 200. Took the locker and shafts and turned the other housing out for 175. I figured 25 bucks was good for spares.

You should also be able to sell your complete D35 for around 150-200 also. So could make for a pretty cheap upgrade.

Good advice, I did not think of having spare parts for the 30.

Thanks
