Pick up the d44 from the newer ttb broncos, Alot of guys who are too intimidated by SAS will do this swap instead.

i ment in general. i updated my list of what ill look for. good idea on the 35's. is the ttb 44 a direct bolt in for a ranger or exploder with a d28 or a d35? if so ill grab them too

Im in the market for a van style SRW ff 14 bolt builder axle or rear d60 ff (kind of rare I hear), a 1354 BW manual transfer case in decent shape and a set of 63" chevy springs. Now that I am out of school for the summer I may have more time to search and pull them myself but if you see any grab them and Id gladly buy or trade for them. Or give me the heads up on where they are at.

Are you going to the rmftc chinaman's gulch run this year?

Here's a question for you, how do you plan on turning around and making a profit off them? How many 8.8's do you see for sale on here vs. how many actually sell? Lot's of guys have them for sale for $50 on here, even less, and JY's around here sell them for $250+.
