FWIW - I got $750 for my D30/44. Completely stock and no brakes. Sold within a week of posting so it was a quick sale at that price.

Depends on location, if they are complete brake to brake you can get upwards of 3k in my area, the less included and or damaged and the less you get.

No problem. I may have priced mine low, but I priced them to move because I didn't want them laying around. A guy bought them for his TJ.

Why not go with Solid. I live West of Pittsburgh and Solid Axle is an hour drive from Pittsburgh. Matt is a great guy and he will defiantly cut you a deal if you show up in person. I have been to his shop a couple of times when he did a HP 60 for my LJ.

Solid has some new stuff coming out in the next couple of months that should be bad ass and blow away the competition.
They are also doing 40 spline axles for dana 60’s.

60/9 is a bad ass setup but expensive. If you are going with 9” center section and looking for clearance then you should do high pinion. Unfortunately Currie uses an 8.8 ring gear on their HP 9” third member and only warranty it up to 35” tires. Look at truehi9 third member they are really strong but expensive at $2,500 each with 35 spline ARB.
Check out spidertrax housings they are really nice and have some sweet options for outer components.

Jeff from Rokmen used spider 9’s on his LJ
http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=814697

Here are some pics of the spider 9 that I sent to Currie and had them weld on the C’s and brackets. This was before Currie offered a custom 9” housing. Their new 9” housing looks surprisingly close to the spider 9 housing. I never got to use the front housing because Currie butt welded the C’s on the housing and put them about a 1” to low. Long story short I got my money back from Currie and I have a heavy paper weight sitting in my basement.

Matt and Steve took over the company from the old owner and they are great to deal with. In my opinion they build the best 60's out there.

she is awesome... i'd have to say we both picked good women... any woman that can put up with our BS is awesome lol.

Chad worked there, and i think ventresco did too for a short period of time..., and Matt's a good guy. we go way back into the days where him and larry worked together. i've never had the $ to buy anything expensive enough from them where he could give me a deal lol.

the other option is buy whatever center section you want (whether it's a 9" or 60) and let matt peters from matt peters off road build them 1 off custom for your rig like he did for kelly's comp rig... hers has a solid HP44 center with 60 outers...


Gcally: we went wheeling with a guy on 35's with 9" axles and he didn't hit at all... meanwhile me on 40's and 1 tons scraped a bunch... it was pretty telling... then again my 14 bolt scrapes on EVERYTHING lol...

Ben: i think he means after the wedding with the gifts... with 125 people showing up to my wedding (and a lot of them being poor friends lol) we still ended up with around 6 grand... With a big italian wedding i bet nick gets pretty close... plus the money he gets for his D44's...

There's also stuff off the registery you didnt get or various other things. Depending on how the wedding was funded their may be other bills to pay etc. Just saying....I hope there's some money left for Nick to upgrade axles that'd be the bee's knees.

If you do wanna go with a rear HP9 I would also recommend the TrueHi9. Otherwise maybe D60s fullfloats with 8x6.5 bolt pattern?

I think a built set of 9s would bring the awesomeness much more. I've been talking with the guys at my local shop and he has me convinced on the Spider 9s. The Spidertrax axles are sweet, yo can get them with all 3/8 tube. Not sure what r&P they use and I know it was mentioned Currie's use the 8.8 so I'm assuming Spidertrax does as well. I'm still in the brainstorming process, but he worked up a price for me of about $6,000, pretty sure that was excluding labor but I can't be positive. He's the guy who did my gears for $300.

Heres the outline of what we worked up so far...

Spider 9 fabricated axles front and rear, 1 ton inner and outer knuckles, 5.13s, and ARB lockers, 35 spline cromoly inner and outer shafts with 1480 U Joints

And we are thinking about using a Currie high steer arm, and possibly the Currie heavy duty steering set up

This phase of my build is about a year or so out, so I've got time. I'm still working on finding permanent employment and a place to live that is closer to the city (Philadelphia). But until then, I've got plenty of time for my plan.

if he's going to stay 37/38's i think it's the way to go... plenty of clearance, plenty strong enough... even with 40's i think they'd be great... but if you're going 40's you'll have clearance for 60's... and i love me some 60's lol

with the F9s you have to buy a seperate 3rd member. Spidertrax and Currie is just the housing. So thats prob 6k for the housings/brackets/welding/labor/etc + another 4-6k for the 3rd member.

http://www.currieenterprises.com/ces...58&p=1899.9500
"The only parts needed to complete this unit is a 9" high or low pinion 3rd. member, and assembly of the unit! Your JK's stock rotors, calipers, and caliper mounting brackets transfer over! This unit is 66" wide."

If you want to run HP in the rear, id suggest getting a real 9" with the larger 9" gear and extra pinion bearing like http://www.truehi9.com. 35spline Detroit with your choice of gearing is 2170.


I really wouldnt call it a "cheaper" alternative. Unless you run a different 3rd member, perhaps a JY rebuild or CL special...etc.
