sounds like a deal but I would be hesitant buying a 3rd hand set not really knowing the history.

3rd-hand set with 60,000 miles on the rear!

Everybody's different, but if I couldn't afford to buy new or barely used I'd just wait till I could.

Even if you were concerned about the miles --new set of bearings, seals,and any sign of wear possibly a new set of gears I think you would be way ahead if you were looking to do a build. 60K on the rear wouldn't bother me too much. Agree though everyone is different.

THANKS @Andyroos for the link!

Just bought them.... Ahhh, just kidding...

If they are internally in good shape it is a good deal for sure.

Couple of things wrong here.

First, there's no such thing as disposable dollars, even if you're a millionaire. Second, if I had that amount of what I (wrongly) considered "disposable" dollars, I wouldn't be shopping for used parts on Craigslist. Especially for items of this caliber. If that amount of money is deemed truly disposable, then buying new wouldn't be an issue at all.

I think you should sell your jeep, take two steps back, and reassess your life and where you're going. Stop this madness before it's too late.

Way too heavy for what I do, overkill. The factory 44's is all I need. $5K will maintain my JK as long as I own it.

I thought it was comical giving sound financial advice on a jeep forum. Had a smile while typing. That's funny shit.

I'm going to be honest with you... when I first read it I was saying to myself "oh.. one of those guys.." and then all of a sudden my sarcasm alarm started screaming in my head. Ahhh... funny!

Okay - low balled him and got them for 3500. Now it's time to figure out where I can spend my leftover disposable 1500 bucks! Maybe I'll shop Craigs for the 37 ridge grapplers and level 8 bullies I was going to get from discount direct. Or maybe I'll take the advice and just sell it. After all perhaps my life does need some re-assessing.

To pull something from another forum I frequent:

You Suck!*


Nice price, and at that price there is no way I would pass on that. Heck, the ball joints are rebuild-able, so sell the spare set for $3-400, and those 37s are in the budget without question.















Note that "you suck" is the appropriate way to congratulate someone on scoring a great deal that makes you jealous.
