Is soooooo widespread in regards to prices on axles. I've gotten an Expo complete rear end w/discs for 60. I've sold a 8.8 28spline w/ drums and 4.10s for 250. Just gotta start somewhere.


Why not have that current rear end re-geared?

i checked the junkyard and the guy said for what i want its gonna be around 300-350. i got the hook up to a huge junkyard that only sells to businesses so it wont even be near as much there. im wanting 4.10 and posi. it would cost more than 300 to put that in my rear end.

okay.

next, ask yourself, "who would be in the market for an 8.8 rear end with 3.55 gearing"

a) someone who just blew up their stock 8.8 w/3.55 after several hundred thousand miles
(this would be a very low number, typically)

b) someone who just removed their lift kit(s) and large tires, and are going back to stock
(this would be a very low number, typically)

c) someone who collects ranger parts
(as above, this would also be a low number, but probably higher than the other two, combined)

given the above, the first law of economics is the law of supply and demand... the rarer and more sought-after an item is, the higher the price... the item you have is 1) not rare, 2) not coveted, and 3) not collectible, except by eccentrics

Not the 28 spline. The Jeep guys look for the 31 spline Ex axles....also get disc brakes.
But you're right, for someone with that POS 7.5 it would be a super easy upgrade.
