If you look closer and click on the link it appears they also have a front axle to make it a matching set....it's trussed with chromo's 513s and heavy duty steering junk....but NO mention of a locker ....for $2500....cough cough

I don't have a TJ but I'm assuming this is a good deal ... Just a prorock44 housing alone is $2500 for a JK

Will for me I'd never pay $2500 for a used glorified d30...and then no locker or even hubs...no thanks
for that money you could build a real d44 with a ARB and some Warn hubs..

Seems a little over priced to me..

Nope ... front only ... it has some steering components added on so I figure that is how they are justifying the price ... i think these are leftovers from the genright swapmeet ... anybody want a stock jk rear bumper? they have one for sell for $50 ... I wish I would have known I could get $50 out of it before I threw it in the dumpster

Yeah thats a bit far for him and he really is more a computer guy than a junk yard dog dude. I doubt he could pull them himself. Thanks I'll keep looking and see if someone has some springs.

His wife would kill him if he brought home another postal jeep. Interchange looks like any 74/75 CJ5 springs would work on it.

75 CJ and 74 DJ should be interchangeable yeah? I thought the DJ was just a 2WD CJ. If that is the case then it may be easier to look for CJ springs. Probably somewhere in Steve's hoarding pile!

His mail side springs are sagging pretty bad. The drivers side is not to bad but it is just about undriveable as is.

Wow, Mike should be on here. He has a hoarding problem too

I've told him from the age of 55 on he has to start selling his crap. I figure it will take him a good 10-15 years to get rid of it all and then I won't be stuck dealing with it when he's dead and gone, lol.

Mike gets away with sneaking stuff because his shop isn't at the house. He has a separate building and fenced yard next to our business. That's how he hid the Bronco from me for almost 3 months Now I do a drive by every now and then and watch him squirm

Of course he swears it's all, "good shit"
