Can anyone get a good deal on a Detroit??

I need this part# 187C-145A

Here's the cheapest that I've found it.... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Ford-...sid=p1638.m118

The local shop (whose already raping me for $80/hr for the 4.56/locker install) wants $625 for it....$75 more than that ebay listing.

Just wanted to see if anyone her, whether it be a member or a vendor, could find me a better deal. I NEED a full carrier replacement locker.

look on pirate4x4.com in their vendor section. Send some PMs around to the different vendors and they'll likely be able to hook you up, especially if you are buying multiple items.

so how is 80 bucks an hour raping you?

us mechanics have to eat to.

your lucky there letting you supply your own parts.

i get payed on commission and i refuse to install customers parts, and we only charge 65 per hour.

sorry i take comments like that personal. mechanics dont bust you up for what you do for a living.

he is not busting a mechanic up for what they do for a living. he just thinks it should be done for less. We all have that opinion to give no matter what it is we are paying for.
