Front Differential

Ok so last weekend I put the new front differential in my truck and now I have pefectly good front differential sitting around. I replaced mine because of the new axle in back and it came with it if you what happend to my truck then you know what im talking about .

Anyways i was woundering if i should try and sell it or just scrap it. Any ideas it has the gears and everything works fine. If I do sell it where should I try and post it up and what would be a fair price. thank you

Sell it. Eventually someone will want to re-gear (up or down) to 3.73's and it's super easy to swap diffs compared to re-gearing. Post on every ranger and explorer site (explorer-forum.com for one).
You may not get much for it but eventually someone will probably bite.
It also makes a good case for someone to re-gear it out of the truck. Someone can buy it, drop it off at the gear shop (cheaper than having them remove it), get it re-geared and swap it in when they have time, and sell their old front diff. Saves time/money and prevents the truck being down for longer than it needs to be.

the diff in my truck right now.... came from him^^ lol. that's why i got this extra diff right now. lol. And i did exactly what he's talking about...buy a diff to get regeared for cheaper since it's already pulled.
