Well it definitely looks like it been wheeled a bit and drug across some rocks for sure. Not as bad as some, hell nowhere near as bad as mine is. lol
Nothing is screaming it's been abused, but again tough to say just from pics. The only worry area I can think of is the potentially bent "C's". I'd say it's worth a shot as long as you can get the guy to drop the price by a couple hundred bucks with the agreement that if you find the C's are good you'll give him the difference back after you confirm it.
If it were me selling it I would be totally okay with that sort of deal. It's the kind of thing that basically makes everybody happy and is a good gesture of not trying to screw somebody by selling them busted up parts. You either know its busted up or you don't. If you have no way of knowing, which I tend to think that most would just find out if the things are bent before pawning it off on someone else, then you gotta just take a loss and give the best info you can up front.
One of the axles I have on the table right now was bought by a guy here locally and if I'm not mistaken he bought it for $700.00. It's a D44 out of a Rubicon, has factory locker and stock gears. It didn't come with knuckles, drums, rotors or shafts. Don't think it was ever taken off road. Looks brand new really. I have added new hd lower control arm mounts, c-gussets, front johnny joint housing kit and a Artec truss and Artec HD raised trackbar mount. This just goes to show that there are very good deals for axles that are in great condition.
My vote is have the price drop $200.00 and be given a chance to inspect it for serious damages first then you can work out getting him the balance. If he's against that sort of deal then chances are he knows it's garbage.
